When the game was found already listed in PlayStation Store and a release date for October 3 was mentioned, a player from Singapore posted that on Tweeter with a snapshot, which @Wario64 shared with more details. The listing was soon removed by Sony from all of their PSN stores. Capcom decided to come clear about all confusion and announced the game is releasing on October 2, 2018 worldwide for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Next year, an alternate gold version was released alongside Mega Man Legacy Collection for Nintendo 3DS.

Our beloved hero will returns in action packed with new augmentations like charge shot, his trusty robotic canine buddy Rush and slide abilities up in his sleeve. One of his most notable latest pieces of upgrade is his newly introduced Double Gear system. When he taps into it, everything in his surrounding will go slow and he will receive a speed booster to help him out. His arch-nemesis Doctor Wily is back with Fuse Man and Block Man along with several other Robot Masters.

Alongside Capcom’s most celebrated video game series of Resident Evil and Street Fighter, Mega Man surely is a widely popular one and maintaining that for 30 years is no mere feat. This is why a mainline entry of the franchise has players this much excited and it looks just as promising as it sounds. Launched in 2010, Mega Man 10 was able to garner critical acclaim and looks like the upcoming release is going to repeat the same history this year.

Mega Man 11 Release Date Leaked

During the 30-year anniversary of Capcom's beloved Blue Bomber Mega Man, the company announced the return of their hero with Mega Man 11 last year. The game was about to release later some time in 2018 on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, it seems that before the developer/publisher could make an official announcement on a release date or show us some trailer at E3, a screenshot from PS4 system has leaked the date for all.

Apparently, ahead of all declarations, Mega Man 11 was already being listed in PlayStation Store and it was posted on Twitter with a snapshot. Then Twitter user @Wario64 shared that Tweet with full description of the game as well. Obviously, Sony had to interfere and remove the listing from their server for now but it was too late as the cat is already out of the bag.

According to the leaked screenshot, worldwide release date of Mega Man 11 was set for October 3, 2018. Only a month ago, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 featuring all eight games from Mega Man X series was announced in celebration of their 30 years' anniversary. So, it was really exciting for us to know when we can expect the game to come out, because it's been so long since the last title from the series was dropped and we seriously cannot wait any longer at this point.

Mega Man is arguably one of Capcom's most popular and longest running series as well as the hero, who also goes by the name Rock Man in Japan. After making his debut on Famicom and NES system in 1987, the franchise has rolled over to many other platforms and spawning many sequels. An interesting clue from the description image was the mention of a “Double Gear system”, meaning they are probably planning to tweak some new gameplay mechanics as well.

For now, we can rely on @Wario64's Tweet as it was a direct screenshot from PSN store and not some hidden clue. Besides, he occasionally does reveal great news on video games and related media. Last time we checked, he even posted an animated GIF version of leaked teaser for RAGE 2 weeks ago. All we need now is a confirmation from Capcom soon to hold onto that date.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

2018 is going to mark Mega Man’s 30th anniversary and developer/publisher Capcom plans to celebrate this event by releasing their latest installment of the franchise, Mega Man 11. However, we don't need to wait that long and can celebrate our favorite blue robot character Mega Man with Mega Man X game series, because Capcom is bringing Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2, collecting all eight X games of the series for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2 both will debut worldwide on July 24, 2018. Mega Man X Legacy Collection collects Mega Man X, X2, X3 and X4 from the series and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 contains X5, X6, X7 and X8. These collections will be available to digitally purchase for only $19.99 each. If you prefer to buy physical copy, then the two discs retail bundle collection will cost you $39.99 only. For Switch, the first collection comes in a cartridge and a digital download voucher will be given for second compilation.

Below is the announce trailer for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, briefly showcasing unique history of the series.




The entire action-platformer Mega Man X series is based on a post-apocalyptic setting that we are about to revisit through Legacy Collection 1 & 2. During the 16-bit era of 90's, Mega Man X entered the scene in 1994 to usher an evolution on its own. A classic formula of jumping and shooting through eight different stages with a Maverick boss character at the end to foil a sinister plot by an evil mastermind was established. Mega Man X series has added dashing and wall jumping into the gameplay mix.

Some all-new features are what make legacy collections special and visual upgrade is one of them. Each title has received some graphical smoothing which is optional for players or you can just play as they were in their original resolution. CRT filters for early sprite-based entries and full screen mode to balance the aspect ratio are there with widescreen mode. Mega Man X7 and X8 has their 3D models improved for sharp output as well.

Full soundtracks of the series, brand-new tracks and remixes are all included. One more thing there is to note about these anthologies is that Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man Xtreme 2 and Mega Man X: Command Mission games are excluded in this set. A 25-minute original video animation titled "The Day of Σ" from Maverick Hunter X, which details origin story of series antagonist Sigma in prior events that laid foundation for X games series.

All-New "X Challenge" Mode

There is a museum full of archived key-arts, notable trailers, toys, trading cards and other cool stuff. Plus, a brand-new "X Challenge" mode is introduced, where Mega Man has to take on two classic Maverick bosses at the same time from different X games. You get to choose a maximum of three weapons into the fight or if you believe yourself as a pro-Maverick hunter then jump in with only a buster for earning your bragging rights. Have you ever wondered if you can defeat both Chill Penguin and Frost Walrus at once? Now you can easily find out.

With releasing of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, Capcom finally is giving some recognition to this classic series what was due for decades as they are no longer available on Nintendo 3DS. Whether you picked up early titles of the franchise or came late to pick the newer games, these two collections will suffice.

Super Smash Bros. Comes to Nintendo Switch

Back in February 2018, we talked about a rumor of a new title for Nintendo Switch, which probably is the new Super Smash Bros. Nintendo eventually put that rumor to rest by announcing bringing the game to Switch later sometime of this year in one of their latest presentation. Also, a teaser trailer was dropped to make the fans grasping for some air as they wait for the title in anticipation.

Witness the first official teaser trailer for crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. announced by Nintendo for Switch on 2018.

The short length trailer opens up with a boy and girl from another successful Nintendo franchise Splatoon, engaging in a paint- shooting. As their battle become more intense, suddenly the world around them goes black and the girl looks around confused. A huge fiery Smash Bros. emblem is seen on the horizon and silhouettes of the possible fighting characters can be seen with Link and Mario. The Inklings from Splatoon are much likely to join the battle this time.

Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series is renowned for assembling various popular characters like Link, Mario and Samus from their fan-favorite titles. Back in 1999, they brought these famous characters together for an all-out brawl to create one of the most successful crossover-fighting game series ever. Protagonists of other third party games like Bayonetta, Mega Man, Metal Gear, Pac-Man and Sonic the Hedgehog also joined the rumble in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

So, it was only fitting when the Super Smash Bros. game finally finds its way to the Nintendo Direct announcement lately.  Now what everyone has been debating about after the trailer is that if the new game is going to be an original title for Switch or just a port version of 2014 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. If we consider the failed history of Wii U to deliver successful games in the past, then it probably is going to be an enhanced port for Nintendo Switch.

Mega Man 11 Announced

On the 30-year anniversary of arcade's most favorite Blue Bomber protagonist Mega Man, Capcom decided to drop the bomb which the fans of the series might not have seen coming but is happy that it dropped. Yup, you guessed it right. The publisher of the game made an official announcement that the legendary hero will return sometime in 2018 with Mega Man 11. Producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya will be on board with director Koji Oda for this brand-new game of the series.

Mega Man 11 Announced

While there are not much details for Mega Man 11 at hand except that the game will be available to play on Nintendo Switch,  PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We have a trailer at hand to show you a brief peek at what's coming in the upcoming title though. Check it out.




One thing is certain that, Mega Man 11 will still remain a 2D side-scrolling action adventure title. In fact, you can even consider it as 2.5D. From its original 8-bit days, Mega Man has managed to become a legend while also inspiring countless other fan-favorite series in the process. With every other games going through a revolutionary change, Mega Man 11 will surely be no different and is about to create new milestones.

All-New Visual Direction 

What we were able to gather was that while the game will resemble to the predecessors of the series in looks, it will be modernized and a noticeable change in art style will be there. Our hero, Mega Man's appearance might even slightly change and he will have a new weapon as well. In this way, the game is re-invented and fans from both older and newer generation can enjoy it at the same time.

Newest Side-Scrolling Adventure

The year 2018 will not only see the release of the latest installment of the Mega Man series but it will also be celebrated for Mega Man’s 30th anniversary. To increase that excitement a little more, all eight games from the Mega Man X series are coming to PlayStation 4 on the same year. So, you can also go back to your old days with those games while you wait for Mega Man 11 to release. Sounds like a plan!

When a series has 30 years of enriched history of being adorned by fans and players worldwide, we only hope from Capcom to bring their very best with Mega Man 11 and nothing less. Since the title is still on the development stage, we have to hold our excitement for the moment and wait for the revealing of the release date for 2018.
