A few scattered re-releases and compilations aside, the once-prolific Mega Man series has been missing in action for most of the past decade.
Mega Man 11 and rereleases of Mega Man X through X8 are coming to Nintendo Switch, according to a recent livestream from Capcom celebrating Mega Man's 30th Anniversary. Rather than sticking to the usual flat and pixelated 2D look, Mega Man 11 will add 3D visual elements to the side-scrolling game.
The game will be produced by Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and directed by Koji Oda, both Capcom veterans with experience in creating Mega Man titles.
Capcom also announced that all eight games in the Mega Max X series, with new features and "more mature themes", are coming to the PC as well. Wily as the evil scientist produces berserk machines, as well as, Robot Masters, which Mega Man must defeat in order to take their weapons. We are now in development of Mega Man 11.

It's been seven years since Mega Man 10, the last mainline entry featuring the blue bomber.
Mega Man 11 is - as the name suggests - the 11th main installment in the now-30-year-old Mega Man franchise. Will you buy the games if they are stand alone only?
What do you think of the Mega Max X Series? Collection 1 covered Mega Man 1 through Mega Man 6 while Collection 2 covered Mega Man 7, Mega Man 8, Mega Man 9, and Mega Man 10. Capcom said that the first collection will also get an update that allows players to rewind gameplay if they make a mistake.
Mega Man 11 is due out in late 2018, with more details being revealed in summer 2018.
