Ever since Capcom announced Mega Man 11 the fans have been chomping at the bit for any information they could find on the Blue Bombers newest adventure. But it seems that fans won’t have to wait too much longer to get their hands on the game itself as the Mega Man 11 release date has just been leaked.
Twitter user @Wario64 was able to screenshot a listing on the Singapore PSN store for Mega Man 11, accompanied by the release date of October 3rd.

The listing has since been taken down and Capcom has not yet commented on the matter. Along with the listing came the description of the game revealing the new Double Gear system.
“To save the day, the Blue Bomber must battle Robot Masters and take their powerful weapons for himself, which now changes the hero’s appearance with new levels of detail. The innovative new Double Gear system lets you boost Mega Man’s speed and power for a new twist on the satisfying gameplay the series is known for.”
The listing was for the PSN only, so there could be discrepancies for release on other platforms as well as physical releases. It was announced via GameInformer that Mega Man 11 would receive a physical release. This was a good surprise to many fans as it wasn’t until Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 that it was possible to get physical copies of Mega Man 9 and 10.
Of course, Capcom could change the release date for any number of reasons so you might not want to mark your calendars just yet. But the leak seems rather trustworthy especially since it comes from @Wario64.
@Wario64 has become quite the reputable source over the years. Several discoveries of his have come to fruition including the recent Walmart leak that revealed the existence of Rage 2.
