Classic X-Men Arcade Available Today for PS3 and Tomorrow on Xbox 360

That’s right. The classic X-Men arcade game you probably spent hours at as a kid is available today for the PS3 and tomorrow for the Xbox 360. This was one of the arcade games I played the most as a kid. I’ve been waiting for it to make it to a console, and it looks like it was worth the wait. Here is the product teaser from Konami:

“Experience the classic 1992 X-Men arcade game right in the comfort of your own home! Choose from some of your favorite classic X-Men characters including: Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler. Fight your way through hundreds of Sentinels and battle classic super villains such as Pyro, The Blob, Wendigo, Nimrod, The White Queen, Juggernaut, Mystique and the Master of Magnetism himself, Magneto!”

Sounds fun, right? I am really looking forward to this game. According to the PlayStation Blog they left the game intact, cannon inaccuracies and all. This game will be just as you remembered it. The larger arcade screen was formatted to fit a wide-screen television, so you are able to play the full game with up to 6 players online or 4 players at home. Here are some of the game highlights:

  • Six Player Online Action
  • High Definition Visuals – (heads-up displays, menus and local/online Leaderboards)
  • Online Drop-In Multiplayer – Players can jump into available online games at any time. Choose from various levels
  • Custom Match
  • Create Match
  • Multiple difficulty modes

Needless to say this one will be downloaded to my PS3 shortly. It might even make a mention in my next Gifts for Geeks segment. The drop-in multi-player is going to be key to this game I think. It will make it more like the arcade experience when someone dropped in their money to join you for a short time or perhaps all the way to the end. You can find out more about the game from the PlayStation Blog or Konami. Check out the trailer below.
