Mega Man 11 hits 1.3 million units sold, now the third best-selling franchise entry ever

Congrats to the Blue Bomber

The future of Mega Man is looking very bright indeed. Back in Nov. 2019, we revealed that Mega Man 11 had officially sold 1 million units. There are just 6 Mega Man games to break the million mark, Mega Man 11 included. Since that announcement, there's been a sales total update.

In Capcom's latest financial report, we see that Mega Man 11 continues to sell. The game is now at 1.3 million units sold, putting it very much in the upper echelon of Mega Man games. It now sits third place overall in terms of best-selling Mega Man games, with Mega Man Battle Network 4 (1.35 million) and Mega Man 2 (1.51 million) ahead of it. There's a real chance Mega Man 11 could overtake Mega Man Battle Network 4, and a slightly lesser chance of becoming #1 overall. Not impossible by any means, though!

Mega Man movie writer looking to make a "primal and emotional" film that "isn't squarely in kid territory"

Big screen Blue Bomber

We just heard a couple weeks back that the Mega Man movie is still moving ahead, and there should be some news to share in the near future. While we wait for that news, Polygon had a chance to talk to writer Mattson Tomlin about his goals for the character's portrayal on the big screen.

I think the same way with with any other character, you treat him like he’s a real person. I was brought into that later in the process because Henry [Joost] and Ariel [Schulman], who directed Project Power, are also directing the Mega Man movie, and they had been working on it for a while and we just had such a good time working on Project Power together that they decided to be kind enough to continue to party in this other universe. My way into it was always, what is a compelling story? And what is the real soul of that character? We all kind of know him as this cartoonish Blue Bomber who jumps and shoots, and to kind of go beyond that and knowing that, OK, visually it’s going to be a certain thing that is going to please the video game fan, but you know what is the story at the center? They’re like, what is it that this character can really go through? It’ll be universal and primal and emotional and everybody can kind of relate to. So I’m really excited about that script. I’m really excited about what the guys are going to do with that movie and and hopefully there’ll be some news about it soon.

Will Mega Man be a movie that is aimed mostly at kids, just like Sonic the Hedgehog? Tomlin doesn't say the film will push kids away, but it's clear that the team is aiming for something more than just kid fodder.

I think it’s something that the kids will like. I don’t want to say what our comps are because it might betray a little bit too much, but it is not squarely in the kid territory. But I don’t think that that’s an R-rated movie either.

Mega Man movie directors say they should have some big news about the project soon

The big screen blue bomber

It's been quite some time since we've heard anything about the Mega Man live-action movie. It's been in the works for quite some time, but as gaming fans know, it can take years and years to actually get a project off the ground. The good news is that the radio silence so far wasn't a sign of trouble behind the scenes.

IGN recently spoke to Mega Man movie directors Henry Joost and Rel Schulman about the project, and while they weren't willing to share specifics, we did learn that there should be some big news about the movie soon. I guess we'll just speculate on who would make the perfect Mega Man until that news comes out!

Capcom is gearing up to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mega Man Battle Network

Merch, events, and more

Ready to feel extremely old? The 20th anniversary of the Mega Man Battle Network series is going to take place in 2021. Millions of fans remember the series quite fondly from their childhood, and it seems Capcom is eager to pay its respects to the franchise.

Capcom is currently looking for partners to help them celebrate the 20th anniversary with some special products. Capcom is aiming to release toys, action figures, apparel, and other consumer goods. They're also looking for partners to help out with special events.

Of course, this celebration of the 20th anniversary has fans wondering if there's going to be something game-related as well. Could there be a new installment in the works, or perhaps a compilation? We'll just have to cross our fingers and hope for the best. We won't know until 2021 gets here, so we've got plenty of time for some wishful thinking!

Thanks to MegaJacobF and Dondom95 for the heads up!
