Fans of the Blue Bomber can try out Mega Man 11 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ahead of its Oct. 2 release.

The demo allows players to take on Block Man at multiple difficulty levels, and contribute to the "Bust Block Man" community challenge that gives them a chance to get a set of single-use items for the retail version of the game.

In addition to firing its way onto all major consoles, Mega Man 11 is also coming to PCs. However, the demo won't be available for PC gamers, Capcom confirmed via email.

The #BustBlockMan challenge was highlighted in a trailer posted on the Mega Man Twitter account Thursday. It also shows off the game's Robot Master boss battles.

The new Mega Man looks to keep the same shoot-at-everything formula as previous titles, but the new Double Gear system lets Mega Man slow down time and overcharge his Mega Blaster.

Mega Man 11 was first announced in December in an early trailer that showed an early look at the new game's art style and gameplay. A deluxe "Amiibo" edition of Mega Man 11 will also include a small statue of the character among bonus items.
