Mega Man 11 is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in 2018, Capcom announced today. The game is a side-scrolling action platformer in the vein of the previous 10 Mega Man games, but with 3D visuals.

Capcom said Mega Man 11 will be released in “late 2018,” in time for the Blue Bomber’s 30th anniversary.

Working on the title are producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and director Koji Oda, both veterans of Capcom and the Mega Man series. The pair talked about their goals for the new Mega Man, referring to the game as something of a rebirth for the character. The game’s art director and character designer, Yuji Ishihara, created a new look for Mega Man, which “leaked” earlier this year on the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 release.

Here’s a peek at the character art for Mega Man 11:

It’s been seven years since the last mainline entry in the series, Mega Man 10, hit consoles.
