Another X-Men gaming-related announcement made its way out the New York Comic Con, with Marvel and Konami announcing the 1992 side-scrolling classic, X-Men, would be making its way to both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade and would feature full online and local drop-in, drop-out co-op. Along with this will be the ability to make your own custom match-ups.
Not much else is going to change though, with the game retaining its original six-member cast of Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm and Dazzler. No other details were on offer, specifically in pricing or delivery so there's no clue as to when we'll see X-Men Arcade as it's now known, but my guess is if not later this year, early next.
Anyone else have fond memories of playing this one?

I remember playing it briefly at an arcade and i remember being frustrated that cyclops was far more usefull then wolverine.
To this day the only decent game featuring x-men characters is the marvel vs capcom franchise.

I think like most things, playing it again will probably ruin my childhood memories of it.
Much like playing Mario Cart on my mates Nintendo64 the other night, I don't care how drunk I was it didnt live up to my memory of it.
