Originally released in 1992, the game was a side-scrolling beat 'em up that allowed up to six players playing simultaneously, as Cyclops, Colossus, Dazzler, Storm, Nightcrawler and Wolverine.

Marvel announced that Konami themselves will be handling the port, and that the game will add Xbox Live support, keeping the same six player cap with an all new online co-op mode. Even better than that though, Marvel asserted that the game will remain the same as it was in '92, stating that they are "bringing back all the cheese and all the bad music."

No word on a release date or price, so instead, let's all watch the game's cheesy intro movie:



Note that this has nothing to do with the recently announced Activision and Silicon Knights game, X-Men: Destiny (which you can read more about here).
