Mega Man 11 introduces new bosses, Block Man will rain hell from above!

Dr. Wily is back with his old shenanigans, bringing eight Robot Masters to the fray. The Blue Bomber will have to tap into Dr. Wily’s technology to combat these trouble-making robots in Mega Man 11. Capcom has revealed two of the eight Robot Masters today, and the first is Block Man. His stage is based in a pyramid, which features death pits and falling objects. If it wasn’t obvious by his name, Block Man will be making your life miserable by throwing blocks at you; testing your eye-hand coordination. Defeating Block Man will be a challenge, especially when he turns into a giant rock monster! Once conquered, Mega Man will gain Block Man’s power of raining block from the skies, making life a little easier in Mega Man 11.

It’s electrifying! Fuse Man is here to bring the shock!

Hiding away in his clich√©, high voltage power plant, Fuse Man will prove to be a tough adversary. Mega Man’s quest to find Fuse Man will be full of electric traps, ranging from laser beams to high voltage floors, and even a fight with a mini-boss. Thankfully, Mega Man has access to the Double Gear system now. This new addition to Mega Man 11 allows the Blue Bomber to slow down time and double charge his Mega Buster. With these new tools, players should have an easier time traversing Fuse Man’s power plant. Be careful, Fuse Man is speedy and will catch you off-guard if you’re not paying attention! Players will have to slow down time, and learn his patterns to take down this speedy robot. Mega Man gains the power of wielding electricity when you outsmart and destroy Fuse Man.

Make sure to pre-order Mega Man 11 from the PlayStation 4 store to receive additional in-game goodies like an alternate game soundtrack and dynamic theme. Capcom hasn’t announced any other pre-order bonuses thus far. With Mighty No. 9 flopping to eternity and beyond, I’m glad to have Mega Man back in the lime light. Personally, I believe that Capcom is treating Mega Man with respect in this game.

Capcom is adding new features and tools to an old formula, and this game is looking to bring back classic platforming action to the masses. Make note on your calendar, Mega Man 11 is coming out on October 2 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC!
