X-Men Arcade Release Date Confirmed

By Rebecca Smith, 8 years ago
Since the complete lack of information about new XBLA releases in Major Nelson's Marketplace schedule, we've been relying on individual publishers to inform us of any games that they are intending to release before December 22nd. Konami have not disappointed, and they have confirmed to IGN that X-Men Arcade will be released on December 15th.

This re-release of the 1992 arcade classic involves X-Men characters such as Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, and Dazzler. The list of villains includes Pyro, The Blob, Wendigo, Nimrod, The White Queen, Juggernaut, Mystique and "the Master of Magnetism himself", Magneto.

When the game was announced in October, it was confirmed that the six-player cap from the original game would be retained, and that a new on-line co-op mode would be available.

A price has still not been confirmed for the game.
