Mega Man's return is less than a month away, but some have been skeptical of his new visual style. Others have wondered whether this different-looking Mega Man 11 would play as well as its classic predecessors. This weekend, Capcom is giving players a chance to try the game out for themselves.
On Thursday, Capcom surprised Nintendo Switch owners with a special demo for Mega Man 11. The demo will consist of the Block Man stage and feature both classic Mega Man mechanics, like Rush, and new features, like the Double Gear system.
The demo will also serve a dual purpose. Capcom is launching the Bust Block Man challenge, where players can successfully defeat the new Robot Master and display their victory on social media with the hashtag #BustBlockMan. If the challenge parameters are met, Capcom will issue a set of single-use items that can be redeemed for the full retail version of Mega Man 11.
Mega Man 11 introduces a fresh batch of eight Robot Masters, with another one also being revealed alongside this demo announcement. Bounce Man joins the rogues gallery, residing in his stage of Boing-Boing Park. Defeating Bounce Man will yield the Bounce Ball, which allows Mega Man to chuck bouncing spheres at his enemies.
The Mega Man 11 demo is available right now on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can pick it up from their respective marketplaces starting Friday. The full game is set to release on October 2 on the aforementioned platforms, as well as PC. For more, check out our E3 2018 hands-on.
