Yes more 90's classic arcade beat'em ups!!!  Hopefully The Simpsons game will be next!!!  Also will the online mode support 6 player?  or Just 4?

@sharma55: I like how Nightcrawler would teleport away when Magneto dropped the floor.  "Peace out, homes!"
 
 
Dazzler!  Woo! 
 
...not really.

I will buy this when it's released. Beat it in like the first 45 minutes, and probably only play it three more times afterward. 
 
And I will love every second of it!

I never played this game in the arcades, but I've always heard good things.  I love arcade beat-em-ups, though, so I'll be giving this a try.

#57 Posted by Superman64 (69 posts) -

Yes! Now...please, oh please just release The Simpsons arcade game and the holy Konami Beat-em-up trinity will be complete.

This reminds of time spent in Chuck E. Cheese.

This is awesome. Isn't X-Men the definitive 4 player co-op game? Let's rock.

WELCOME TO DIE!

I have fond memories of this game. Really needs dual monitor support though :)

Answered yourself there.  If GR once had plans to charge more than $3 a game, it has long since evaporated along with its relevance.  And Konami is too smart to let X-Men go for less than $10.
 
Wrong game, but:
  TANK U, HAWKAI.

You sir can have your Wolverine, I am content with Nightcrawler wrecking everyone's robot faces.  I think I might have to make the Colossus super "woooooooooaaaaahhhhhhhh' my txt msg alert sound now.
 
Also, I am probably the only one that used to play games on the 4up spot in the arcade thinking I got more lives for my money.

" cool.  now release simspons arcade "
Easily the two best arcade beat 'em ups of the early 90's.

Sadly, this will be a day one purchase for me, even though I suspect it will not have aged well at all.

Call me when Captain America and the Avengers hits Live. Now that's an awesome game! Also, the funky Spider-Man arcade game that Sega put out that let you play as Spidey, Black Cat, Hawkeye, and friggin' Namor!

#68 Posted by NTM (8468 posts) -

I definitely remember that game. Sweet.

#69 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (745 posts) -

Can't wait for this, won't have to be stuck playing this at the theater out here.

This.

I came really close to making an offer on an old cabinet that's at the local theater.  I think they had it next to one of those racing game cabs that had giant speakers built into the sides at one point, because it had the purple blob at a side of the screen from being near a magnet. 
 
Anyway, while not near as sexy, I'm thinking I'll go this route!

I think $10 is the sweet spot for this one.  It will be interesting to see what Konami thinks it's worth.

First day purchase for me

There's a comic book store in my area that has that weird Spidey game on freeplay. Weird game. 
I actually thought this one was superior to Cap and the Avengers if for no other reason than six players being better than two. So I'm incredibly psyched about this. 
 
I'm also glad they're not fixing the audio so Magneto will still welcome me to die.

Dibs on colossus, he was 100x better then wolverine.

#78 Posted by LiquidPrince (16508 posts) -

No graphical update?

#79 Posted by DonChipotle (3076 posts) -

Dibs on Dazzler.

All of the XBLA beat 'em ups seem like one hour nostalgia purchases that people play once and then never again.

#81 Posted by Sergotron (558 posts) -

There should totally have an achievement beating the game alone with Dazzler.

@AlKusanagi:
Spiderman! Im with ya on that one!
#83 Posted by Fleppie (234 posts) -

YES! Finally! Now I just want the Simpsons beat-em-up game so I can totally relive my youth!

#84 Posted by mugen812 (2 posts) -

This'll be cool. I remember playing this on mame so it'll be fun to try it on XBLA.

#85 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1713 posts) -

That such a huge game in the arcade and I just aint talking about how popular it was.  The machine, cabinet wtf, was huge!

#86 Posted by StealthRaptor (550 posts) -

Whoa there, sudden-explosion-of-Nightcrawler-flashbacks - next time give me fair warning before you commandeer my brain!

#87 Posted by MisterMouse (3599 posts) -

I am more interested in the other x-men game that was announced recently

#88 Posted by JJWeatherman (14801 posts) -

So much nostalgia, washing over me me like a god damned tsunami.

#89 Posted by dussssstin (38 posts) -

I never got to play the arcade game so I'm excited for this. I would've liked to see an HD remix though.

Oh man. X-Men was awesome in the arcades. And you're right, Wolverine is the one to choose. Cyclops wasn't that bad, if I remember correctly.

#92 Posted by Spikey (24 posts) -

Dibs on Colossus!

??  Fuck this game.  Probably charge $10
for it & sure as shit won't be worth it.

Actually, he's pretty dead on. As much as I loved Turtles In Time, back in the day, it doesn't quite have the same appeal anymore, especially as you're not paying with a limited amount of quarters. 
#96 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4941 posts) -

now we just need simpsons arcade and The Avengers.

I guess you're right then. My view of Streets Of Rage still being awesome in 2010 is an entirely false opinion, because he's "dead on."

" Why is the 360 version only 4 player? I'm not bitching (I don't plan on getting this regardless) it just seems really random. "
Uhh... because you can't sync more than four 360 controllers to one box at a time.
#99 Edited by Olivaw (1225 posts) -

Why would you ever play Wolverine? What the hell, Nicholson.
 
It's all about Colossus and his mutant power of exploding and going "woooOOOAAAARG"
