Mega Man gaming franchise is finally making its comeback next year. Its a great news for fans. Capcom announces the comeback of the series during the 30th anniversary live stream of the game. Mega Man has first released 30 years ago on the NES. The game is making its comeback by the Mega Man 11. It will not be the sequel of Mega Man 10 which came in 2010. Mega Man 11 will release in late 2018.
The series is taking a leap by jumping forward with new “hand-drawn” 2.5D visuals of environments instead of 8-bit graphics.
Capcom has also released the trailer for the Mega Man 11 gameplay(starting from 3:34) in which gameplay of previous games is also shown. The game is looking very promising with its 2.5D visuals giving an illusion of 3D environment.Have a look here:
In addition, Capcom has announced all eight games in the Mega Man X series with new themes and features. The Mega Man Legacy Collection( contains Mega Man 1 to 6 ) is also coming with the new feature of rewind.

Mega Man X is also coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC as well but no details on the release are out. Legacy Collection will come on the switch next year and currently available on PS4 and Xbox One.
