Mega Man 11

Yesterday, we reported on Capcom’s financial results, including the sales success of the games they released last year. However, they were pretty vague on the actual sales numbers, only stating that, for example, Mega Man 11 “reported strong sales”. Now, thanks to a transcript of a Q&A session that was held after Capcom’s recent financial results briefing, we have concrete numbers for some Mega Man titles.

Mega Man 11 has sold 870,000 copies last year, while Mega Man X Legacy Collection sits at 920,000 copies sold (the Q&A doesn’t make it 100% clear whether this is Legacy Collection 1 or 1+2). Note that these are the sales numbers for all platforms the games launched on, not just Nintendo Switch.

Capcom shared its latest financial results today. For the nine months ended December 31, net sales increased to 61,270 million yen for a 28.3% year-over-year increase. Operating income also saw a 92% boost. Capcom later highlighted that it “achieved the highest profit levels for the end of a third quarter in company history.”

Further on in its report, Capcom spoke about the performance of a few of its games. One of these was Mega Man 11, which had “strong sales”. Onimusha: Warlords, which launched last month, is also “off to a good start”.

Capcom posted a lengthy interview today with Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, the producer of Mega Man 11. Tsuchiya had much to say about how the series returned after such a long hiatus, the development team, the visual style, and more.

Read up on the full interview with Tsuchiya below.

When Mega Man 11 had its first blowout in Game Informer’s January 2018 issue, fans noticed what looked to be a Mega Man Star Force costume. Now that the game is out, we can say that nothing of the sort was included. Capcom has explained why.

In the Japanese Rockman 11 Production Note book, Capcom states that the costume was actually as a placeholder for Tundra Storm. The blurb notes:

For the release of Mega Man 11 in Japan, Capcom created a special collector’s edition. Find an unboxing video for the package below, along with a closer look at the new amiibo.

Mega Man as a series has not been known as a “casual” experience. The levels require patience and the robot masters require learning. This all changed when the latest Mega Man Legacy collections added accessibility with a rewind feature. Fortunately, Mega Man 11 follows suit and upgrades itself with difficulty options that will help newcomers and casuals alike. Come take a look at what the changes mean for you.
