- Series returns, celebrating 30 years and 32 million cumulative units sold -

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced the latest entry in the Mega Man series, Mega Man 11, which will be released worldwide for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC.

Since Mega Man debuted on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987, the series secured its position as one of Capcom's major brands, boasting cumulative sales of 32 million units worldwide (as of September 30, 2017). Mega Man gained a following due to the challenging gameplay that contrasted with the memorable design of its characters; in the 30 years following its launch, the series has spawned numerous spin-offs, which altogether still enjoy the support of a deeply passionate fan base, consisting of everyone from younger players to hardcore gamers alike. In addition to video games, Mega Man has been featured in a wide range of products around the globe, such as cartoons, movies, comic books, toys and a wealth of other licensed merchandise.

Mega Man 11 is a completely new title, and is scheduled for release in late 2018. Taking advantage of the latest generation of hardware, it will feature smooth animation and beautiful, hand-drawn characters and environments, alongside the tight side-scrolling action that the series is known for. The title will provide a progressing sense of achievement, giving long-time fans a chance to relive the thrill of their first time playing the series, and new players an opportunity to experience the fun of beating a 2D action game.

Beginning with this announcement, Capcom is looking to build excitement around the Mega Man brand by kicking off the Mega Man Series 30th Anniversary. In addition to this title, in 2018 Capcom plans to release both Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 for the Nintendo Switch, as well as all eight Mega Man X titles for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC. What is more, in addition to these games Capcom is preparing numerous Mega Man brand initiatives to roll out across the globe.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
