Mega Man fans won't have to wait until Mega Man 11 comes out next month to play the game now that Capcom has released a free downloadable demo featuring the Block Man stage.

In the demo, which is available for all of the game's platforms, players can choose from multiple difficulty levels before stepping into the boots of Mega Man himself with robot dog Rush by his side.  In a stunningly hand-drawn, technically advanced pyramid environment, players are encouraged to use various tools including the new Double Gear system and various boss weapons to bust Block Man and absorb his powers.

Furthermore, those who take on Block Man in the free Mega Man 11 demo will contribute to the “Bust Block Man” community challenge for a chance to receive a set of single-use items that can be redeemed in the retail version of the game.  Players who defeat Block Man can display their victory using the #BustBlockMan hashtag on social media and then stay tuned to official Mega Man social channels to check out the progress as the community works together to chip away at Block Man.

Mega Man 11 is scheduled to release in North America on Oct. 2 both digitally and at retail for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.  The game is also releasing as a digital exclusive for Windows PC.
