And now they'll be joined on October 2 by Mega Man 11. With it being the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man series, it is only fitting that Mega Man 11 would release this year and, alongside a release date of October 2, even more has been shared about the brand-new title, from story bits to new gameplay mechanics. Offering new options to enhance both Mega Man's speed and power on the fly.

The game will see the Blue Bomber face long-time foe Dr. Light, who also recalls this inventive idea, decides to upgrade Mega Man with this powerful prototype known as the Double Gear system. The Double Gear activates at critical health, allowing Mega Man to gain access to a hidden ability to activate the Power and Speed gears simultaneously. This will boost Mega Man's speed and power in a new twist to the gameplay. It's unknown exactly what kind of functionality the Amiibo will feature, or whether or not it will work differently from the current Super Smash Bros. series figure, at this time. It's set to release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, but it should be noted that there's a separate special edition for Nintendo Switch owners.
