洛克男11，known as Rockman 11: Unmei no Haguruma!! (ロックマン11 運命の歯車！！? lit. “洛克男11：命运的齿轮！！”) in Japan, is an upcoming game planned to be released in 2018. It is the eleventh main entry from the original Mega Man series.
Mega Man 11 will be similar to both seventh and eight installments of the original Mega Man timeline for its detailed graphic gameplay. Much like Mega Man Powered Up, Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X, and Mega Man X8, Mega Man 11 will use 2.5D graphics for the gameplay engine.
Energy Tanks will make a re-appearance in this game.
This game will have four difficulty modes: Newcomer, Casual, Normal and Expert mode.
The game was announced on December 4th, 2017 during the live stream celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man franchise. Before its announcement, two concept arts hinting its development were shown, the first as Roll's new design for her Nendoroid figure, and the second of Mega Man's new weapon design appearing as an easter egg in the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 gallery.
When deciding how the game would look, the team selected some stages from previous games, such as Stone Man's stage from Mega Man 5 and Pump Man's stage from Mega Man 10, and redesigned them with improved graphics as a test. The team decided that striving for an extended sense of nostalgia seemed a bit off from what gamers were looking for, and decided to use new graphics to show that not only Mega Man is back, but also improved.
Currently only one Robot Master has been shown. He is shown to be a rotund, cyan robot with gold & white accents and dull, grey bricks covering his body. This boss was tentatively named Renga Man (レンガマン Rengaman?, lit. "砖块男"), but he has since been renamed to have a new, unknown title. Not much is known about him aside from the weapon Mega Man obtains from him, which gives the ability to spawn/throw four cyan bricks. Apparently,他也是莱特博士最喜爱的创造物之一。
It has been confirmed that there will be eight Robot Masters total as usual，并且这些 Robot Masters曾经都是莱特博士的盟友。Despite overwhelming feedback from fans wishing for such, there will be no female Robot Master(s) in the game.
- This marks the return of Mega Man series mainline after eight years of hiatus.
- This is the second original Mega Man main installment game to use full voice audios since Mega Man 8.
