Mega Man 11 Graces Game Informer’s January Cover
Mega Man 11 is featured in the January 2018 issue of Game Informer magazine. The entire issue (front and back) features the various iterations of Mega Man throughout the years. It’s a great piece of art that demonstrates how far the game’s direction has come. Even the old yellow and blue Mega Man with a pistol from the original game is represented!
Mega Man was once one of the biggest brands in gaming, but after longtime Mega Man director Keiji Inafune left Capcom in 2010 the character went on a hiatus. Many fans worried Mega Man was dead. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. Mega Man is back and he looks better than ever in a new game full of the classic action/platforming gameplay.
For our January cover story, we traveled to Capcom’s headquarters in Osaka, Japan to get the full scoop on Mega Man 11. We chatted with the developers to get a better understanding of how they’re changing Mega Man’s look and what they have done to update Mega Man’s gameplay for a modern audience while holding true to the formula fans have loved for over 30 years. We also played through two levels of the game and share our hands-on impressions of combat and enemies. Finally, we look back at Mega Man’s impressive 30-year history and explore what made those early Mega Man games so special.
