Speed Gear - Introduces the ability to slow the flow of time, useful to navigate tricky platforming sections or avoid fast-moving enemies or obstacles.
New to the classic series, Mega Man now also takes on characteristics of defeated Robot Masters when wielding their weapons.
Mega Man 11 is the first mainline Mega Man game after a long time.
The Mega Man franchise is finally returning stronger than ever in the form of Mega Man 11. Capcom mentioned that they were targeting a late 2018 release so the October 3rd date does seem to fall in line. Double Gears need time to recharge after use, especially if Mega Man gets desperate and utilizes them both at once. The plans include what is called the Double Gear system which is created to push "robots beyond their normal capabilities".
The developer also confirms that there will be several difficulty options to choose from in Mega Man 11.
Mega Man 11 will be getting a physical and digital release on October 2nd, though the Switch arguably has the best deal of all. It's available to pre-order on Amazon now with a 20% Prime discount.
Rather than following the current trend for replicating the graphical style of the 8-bit era, Mega Man 11 features a new anime aesthetic that's... interesting.
