Out Now: X-Men Arcade
When I think about my time in the arcades during the early 90s, I think about two games: Street Fighter II and X-Men Arcade. While Street Fighter II has since appeared on every home video game platform known to man, X-Men Arcade lived and died in the arcade. Unless you still have access to an arcade cabinet, there hasn’t been a (legal) way of playing this game ever since it first appeared in the arcades.
For the rest of us, we can finally now play X-Men arcade on the PlayStation 3 or XBOX 360.
If you’re looking to experience this classic arcade beat ‘em up, It’s available for download on the PlayStation Network and XBOX Live Arcade for $10. I’ll be picking this up the moment I get home later today. I’m excited to play this again because I haven’t had a chance to play it in over 15 years. I’ll certainly have impressions on it eventually, but getting anything together within a timely matter during this time of the year is going to prove tricky. For now, just pick it up and we’ll discuss soon!
