Capcom has announced that Mega Man 11 will be released on October 2nd. The platform game appears simultaneously on the PC, the Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The publisher has also released a new trailer.
Capcom announces the release date on its blog and also explains the new Double Gear system. Players receive two new abilities Speed Gear and Power Gear in Mega Man 11 that can be activated at any time. If players bet too much on the possibilities, it results in overheating and waiting for the character to cool down.
By using Speed Gear, Mega Man gets faster and the environment slower. This makes it easier, for example, to avoid projectiles, or to recognize patterns of enemies. With Power Gear, the Mega Buster can be charged to unload two shots at once. Other weapons, which players earn by defeating bosses, also benefit from Power Gear.
If the player threatens to die, it is possible to bet on Speed and Power simultaneously, which results in a delay of time and great devastating shot. Mega Man 11 was announced by Capcom at the end of last year, on the thirtieth anniversary of the first part.
