Capcom TV Ep. 100 features Mega Man 11

Mega fun!

Capcom TV hit its 100th episode! To celebrate, the team played a bunch of titles, including Mega Man 11. You can check out that specific segment above.

Mega Man 11 sells 870k so far, Mega Man X Legacy Collection hits 920k

Earlier today, Capcom said in their financial release that Mega Man 11 had 'strong sales,' but didn't share an actual figure. They also said Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 was selling well, but once again, didn't share a figure. Now we have actual sales data on those games.

In some excellent news, Mega Man 11 has already moved 870k units worldwide. That's honestly much, much better than I figured the game would do. It seems most people took the digital route, which is why it was so hard to track sales.

As for Mega Man X Legacy Collection, that is currently sitting at 920k units sold. Capcom didn't specific if this figure was for Collection 1 or 2, but it's likely both combined.

The way things are going, both of these games should hit the 1 million mark sometime within the current year. With a few more promotions and special sales, we should see both games easily surpass that mark.

A better look at the super-exclusive Mega Man 11 golden amiibo


As you might remember, Capcom held a special contest in Japan to give away a golden Mega Man 11 amiibo. There were only 10 to give away, and one of the lucky winners decided to snap some pics of his prize to share on Twitter. The amiibo comes in the standard package, but includes a special certificate. This is one hell of a collector's item for Mega Man fans!

Capcom releases final round of Christmas-themed Mega Man 11 art

Capcom explains why they removed Mega Man's iconic boss shutter hangtime mechanic in Mega Man 11

One thing almost all Mega Man fans noticed when the Mega Man 11 demo came out was a change in how boss shutters worked. For every other installment in the Mega Man series, you could jump through a boss shutter and hang in the air as the screen transition. Mega Man 11 removed that feature, and fans have been wondering why ever since the discovery. In an interview with Game Informer, producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya gave an answer.

According to Tsuchiya, since areas in the game are, "connected by horizontal shutters placed in the floor," they "unified" the movement to have things make sense. Tsuchiya says that, "if players were to slide onto the shutter, they would then fall into the area below in the same pose, which would be unnatural."

In other words, because there are shutters on the floor now, they had to do away with the hangtime for boss shutters. I don't know about you, but I think that's a pretty bogus explanation.
