XMen Arcade The classic X-Men arcade game was one of the titles we wanted to see remade for this generation in high definition. Half of our dream has come true. The classic coin-op X-Men game is coming to PSN and XBLA soon, but it will retain its original graphics.

The announcement was made today at Marvel’s New York Comic-Con panel. We’re going to play as the X-Men’s old guard as they take on Magneto and his band of like-minded villains. We can play as Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Dazzler, Storm and Nightcrawler. The game will also feature six player drop-in online co-op. A widescreen option is available as well as multiple difficulty settings.

No price was given for the X-Men arcade game.

This is a classic side-scrolling fighting game at its finest. It takes us back to the days when a pocket full of quarters bought you around 15 minutes of playtime. We didn’t complain about price in relation to a game’s length back then. As long as we were having fun, that’s all that really mattered. My favorite character in the game was Colossus. I can’t wait to use his special move again.
