Capcom has announced today that players can download a free demo of the upcoming title Mega Man 11 and “test their mettle” before the games release on 2nd October. The demo is available for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. While not yet on the Xbox store, it should be available at some point today. To celebrate the release of the demo, Capcom has also released a trailer which shows a new Robot Master named Bounce Man and his stage, the vibrant Boing-Boing Park. Check the trailer out below, along with more on what to expect in the demo.
In the demo, players can choose from multiple difficulty levels before stepping into the boots of Mega Man himself with robot dog Rush by their side. In a stunningly hand-drawn, technically advanced pyramid environment, players are encouraged to use various tools including the new Double Gear system and various boss weapons to bust Block Man and absorb his powers.
Fans who take on Block Man in the free Mega Man 11 demo will contribute to the “Bust Block Man” community challenge for a chance to receive a set of single-use items that can be redeemed in the retail version of the game. Fans who defeat Block Man can display their victory using the #BustBlockMan hashtag on social media and then stay tuned to official Mega Man social channels to check out the progress as the community works together to chip away at Block Man!
About Mega Man 11:
In Mega Man 11, players must jump, slide, shoot, and more through challenging stages and the powerful bosses Dr. Wily controls, otherwise known as Robot Masters. Defeating the bosses and absorbing their powers is the heart of the game. Dr. Light installs the new prototype Double Gear system in the heroic blue ‘bot, imbuing Mega Man with brand new skills that allow him to slow the flow of time or power up his trusty Mega Buster and other weapons on the fly. Mega Man however isn’t the only one with access to the new gear system; Dr. Wily has also installed the Double Gear system in the powerful Robot Masters! Players will need to use everything at their disposal to take down Dr. Wily in the fight for everlasting peace.
