Capcom is bringing Mega Man X to the iPhone and other iOS devices this month, but they aren’t simply porting the Super Famicom game or re-releasing Mega Man X: Maverick Hunter. Mega Man X for iOS has cartoony art instead of 16-bit sprites.
The transfer reminds me of Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax’s Xbox Live makeover. Famitsu shared the first screenshots and we made a quick comparison.
Mega Man X for iOS has touch screen controls with a digital control pad and shot buttons. New features include Game Center supported leaderboards for 80 different challenges.
