Capcom has announced that Mega Man 11 will release on Nintendo Switch in October, and, for the portable home console alone, you can choose to buy the Mega Man 11 amiibo Edition.
This will include a physical copy of the game, Mega Man amiibo, Stage Select microfiber cloth, four colourful stickers and a Dr. Wily logo adhesive patch.
The Blue Bomber’s return marks the iconic hero’s 30th anniversary, and, with a veteran development team behind it, you will jump, slide and shoot your way through challenging stages to defeat Robot Masters and absorb their powers.
The moustachioed series villain Dr. Wily is back to his mischievous ways and has had a true flash of evil genius, deciding to invest in an ambitious idea from his time at Robot University where he studied alongside Dr. Light, Mega Man’s benevolent creator.
Dr. Light, who also recalls this inventive idea, decides to upgrade Mega Man with this powerful prototype known as the Double Gear system, installing it into his circuits and expanding his abilities for the greatest fight yet for everlasting peace as they take on the evil attempts of Dr. Wily to conquer the world.
The new Double Gear system will let you enhance Mega Man’s speed and power on the fly, which is broken down into three choices:
- Speed Gear: Introduces the ability to slow the flow of time, a useful tool for many situations such as navigating tricky platforming sections or avoiding fast-moving enemies or obstacles.
- Power Gear: Allows players to charge the Mega Buster to a new level, and weapon-based abilities become even more robust.
- Double Gear: When at critical health, Mega Man will gain access to a hidden ability to activate both gears simultaneously, unleashing maximum power and allowing for deft manoeuvres in the direst situations.
Mega Man 11 will release for Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America on October 2nd, and in Japan on October 4th.
