It's not even summer, but 2018 is already an absolute killer year for Capcom's Mega Man fans. In addition to the recent Nintendo Switch release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2 of the Mega Man X Legacy Collection and the Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 are in this July and bundle the celebrated X-Games. And now they will be joined by Mega Man 1
Capcom announced the announcement on its blog and confirmed that the game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC the aforementioned date. Both the physical and digital versions are being released, and the game is currently pre-orderable for $ 30 at the PlayStation Store. In addition to the game, pre-order access to the "Wily Numbers: Instrumental Stage Tracks" for the levels and PlayStation 4 users will also receive a special 30th Anniversary theme for their console. The alternative tracks focus heavily on the piano and give the stages a different feel than originally.
Capcom has also described the game's "Double Gear" system, which gives Mega Man access to new abilities. The "Speed Gear" slows the world around him and allows Mega Man to escape from precarious situations, while "Power Gear" increases the damage for both the normal Buster Shot and the Mega Buster. It also improves the effectiveness of all special weapons that Mega Man gets, but the overuse can temporarily disable the Double Gear system.
"When things look desperate, Mega Man can activate both gears at the same time, when his health is critical, slowing down time to crawl and unleashing his full potential in a massive, overloaded shot from his mega buster!" Capcom added ,
We now know another of the bosses, Mega Man will fight this time – "Fuse Man" The fast character is protected by falling and laser and he joins the previously uncovered "Block Man" in the fight against the Blue Bomber , We'll probably hear more details on other bosses later on, and if you join E3 this year, the game will be playable at the Capcom booth.
