A demo for the upcoming Mega Man 11 is now available to download on Nintendo Switch, Capcom announced. The demo for the super fighting robot’s latest adventure will hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One some time tomorrow.

The demo’s focus is on the game’s early areas and a new trailer below shows off the new Robot Master Bounce Man, who’s level is a bouncy, balloon-and-ball filled maze with spring-loaded platforms, rounded enemies, and a giant frog mid-boss.

Mega Man 11 launches across major platforms on October 2nd, with Switch owners also seeing a new Mega Man amiibo release in tandem. The full game includes new Double Gear combat, Challenge Mode, and a Score Attack. This marks the first proper Mega Man installment since 2010 and the first since co-creator Keiji Inafune left publisher Capcom in 2011.

Given the demo’s temporary exclusivity on Switch, this is likely a casualty of the Nintendo Direct that was meant to air tonight, but was delayed due to an earthquake that hit Hokkaido. It is rumored that the Direct may air properly on September 14th.
