Konami’s X-Men Arcade Game Making Comeback On PSN And XBLA



While Konami have mostly abandoned the superhero scene for the moment, back in 1992, they produced a pretty fun side-scrolling X-Men arcade beat-’em-up game. X-Men is now coming to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.


Konami and Marvel made the announcement at the New York Comic-Con this past weekend and mentioned that the game would include a drop-in online co-op mode for up to six players. Offline, X-Men supports up to four players. Aside from the addition of online, the game will also allow you to select a difficulty setting of your preference. A custom match mode lets players search for multiplayer sessions by the difficulty level or create a room with their difficulty and starting level choice.


Backbone Entertainment is handling the port and plan to release X-Men on both platforms this year.
