Mega Man 11 Demo Available Now for Switch | Gaming News
Fight through Block Man’s stage.
Announced through the official Mega Man Twitter account, a new trailer was released to coincide with the demo, introducing a new robot master for the game: Bounce Man. His stage is filled with balloon-like surfaces that the Blue Bomber can bounce off of and is generally filled with odd, colorful contraptions.
The demo allows players to go through Block Man’s stage, and let’s you try out the game’s Power, Speed and Double Gear systems while also letting Mega Man play around with Impact Man and Fuse Man’s powers.
Though most demos tend to release on all available systems simultaneously, Capcom dropping this demo on the Switch a day early likely points to it being one of the announcements that would have been in the 35-minute Nintendo Direct originally scheduled for this afternoon. However, due to a 6.7 magnitude earthquake that struck the northern island of Hokkaido, Japan, the Direct has been delayed to the near future.
