Marvel: X-Men Arcade to Hit PSN, XBLA
Start partying like it’s 1992: Marvel announced it is porting its six-player X-Men arcade cabinet title for download on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
T.Q. Jefferson of Marvel Games wouldn’t say exactly when the port would happen at a panel at New York Comic Con, but he did say the game would be ported by its original developer, retain the six-player cap, and feature drop-in online co-op.
X-Men featured six playable characters: Cyclops, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Storm and Dazzler.
So as long as we’re making ports out of every single arcade game that could be found in my local roller skating rink during elementary school — what about Alien vs. Predator? You know, the side-scroller where the marines were fighting alongside the predators? I beat that game probably five times between being eight and 10 years old and it was glorious.
Anyway…who do I put that request in to?
