It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Mega Man in action. 2010’s retro revival Mega Man 10 was the last time the Blue Bomber received a new release, with Capcom being seemingly hesitant to give the character a spotlight after the very public departure of Keiji Inafune, the iconic designer of the robotic hero. Since the launch of Mega Man 10, there’ve been many attempts by other developers to fill the void left behind; Inafune’s own Mighty No. 9 ended up being a crushing disappointment while new IP like Azure Striker Gunvolt showed fans that the dream could live on. Now Mega Man is back at the forefront with Mega Man 11, a brand-new release in the classic series, and Capcom has proven that it has lost none of the magic that defined many earlier entries in the series; make no mistake, this is a triumphant return to form.
