Slowly but surely, we get an idea of which robots the Blue Bomber will use in Mega Man 11. Today, during his Comic Con panel in San Diego, we got a look at the latest – and he's a hot item.
Torch Man lives up to its name, delivering a series of fiery attacks that easily burn Mega Man. You can see it in action in the trailer above.
Here are a few descriptive details about the character, straight from Capcom:
"For our last update, we unveiled Blast Man and its elusive theme park, but the surprisingly cool head of Torch Man trades the densely packed corridors of an abandoned movie studio a lush forest and a campsite where he has turned into his personal training ground to refine his "fist of fire." The dense foliage seems to be a rather unusual choice for a robot whose shoulders are literally burning, though Before Torch Man got angry, he brought fire protection to the campers, what an irony!
"When you finally catch the torch-man, the woods are flaming behind him (nobody told him that he can only prevent forest fires), here and there you have to deal with much more than a little fire." Torch Man is surprisingly quick Show that he is not only a fire-fighter, but also a "Torch-Jutsu" Combat Champion! Time your jumps and glide well to dodge fireballs and maneuver yourself in Torch Man's glowing kicks as you get attacks your guard will not fall, otherwise you could be at the mercy of the fiery spirit of this robot if it loses its temperament. "
And finally we got information about what weapon Mega Man can get from the crashed torch male received. "Fackelmann punching gives you the Loder Torch, a weapon that fires a glowing fireball diagonally into the air! Like the robot master, this weapon comes, every blazing ball comes back like a flaming projectile, reminiscent of the raging kicks of Torch Man. With the Power Gear, you can boost the heat and fire three projectiles at once! "
It gets hot for Mega Man 11 when it debuts on October 2nd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC! Here you can see more torch pictures.
