Mega Man 11 may not be launching until October 2nd, but fans can get an early taste of the full experience in a new demo.
According to a recent tweet from the official Mega Man account, a free demo for the anticipated platformer is now available on Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to blast through Block Man’s stage fitted with Fuse Man and Impact Man’s special weapons. Capcom also noted that the demo will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 7th.

In celebration of the demo, the developer revealed players have the chance to unlock a special in-game item by completing a global challenge. According to the latest Capcom-Unity blog post, players that can defeat Block Man and share their victories using #BustBlockMan on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook will help chip away at a statue of Block Man. “If enough people defeat Block Man, everyone who’s played the Mega Man 11 demo will get a small reward of single-use items they can redeem in the full game,” Capcom explained.
The trailer also debuted a new Robot Master: Bounce Man. While the large pink baddie might appear to be friendly, the footage reveals that he will bounce around the screen to crush Mega Man with his enormous belly and fists.
Bounce Man marks the sixth Robot Master to get a special trailer. Fans might get a sneak peek at the final two bosses in the roster soon, but if not, they’ll get to meet them for the first time when Mega Man’s next adventure launches in a few weeks.
Mega Man 11 will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 2nd.
