NYCC: X-Men Arcade Coming to Xbox 360 and PS3

The greatest Marvel arcade game of all time is finally getting the modern treatment, as today at NYCC Marvel announced that Konami's classic X-Men Arcade game will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network!


Choose from Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler in this six-player brawl-fest, featuring drop-in/drop-out online cooperative play. Judging from the trailer, X-Men Arcade will also have a kind of sandbox mode where you can drop any of the bosses into play. The port is being developed in-house by Konami, but no word on a release date yet.

I call dibs on Colossus!


  1. Dazzler?  I don’t remember anyone ever picking Dazzler.  I doubt anyone ever picked her…except Ron. 🙂

  2. I am aggresively repulsed by these Marvel video game offerings.

  3. I had no qualms with playing as Dazzler. 


  5. dibs on Cyclops

  6. i am magneto. master of MAGNET!

  7. Dazzler haters forget that she is way more powerful than a lot of other mutants.

  8. Is it wrong to but a PS3 just because of this?

  9. Huh, could have sworn Jubilee was in the arcade game and Dazzler wasn’t… :/

  10. Yes!!  I was wondering when this would hit consoles for a really long time now!!  A little bit late, but I might just have in on my PS3 just for nostalgia!!

  11. I remember spending many a afternoon with a fist of quarters on that game. Now all it will cost me is time. … oh and some vague Microsoft points that have a very odd exchange rate.

  12. This game is high on my nostalgia wish list! I will definitely get this one. now all I need is the old Avengers game that was out around the same time, and the Dungeons and Dragons side scroller from the late 90s and I’ll be golden!

  13. Words cannot express how excited I am for this! I spent SO MUCH money on this as a kid.


    Now all we need is the Avengers arcade to be ported too!!!!!


  14. YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!

  15. Very cool, I remember the obnoxiously huge cabniet this game had at the arcade

  16. About time. I can’t even tell you guys how many hours I spent playing this game.

  17. Holy poop, about freakin’ time.  Storm was always the best character – beat the entire game with her wand and not using her mutant powers.

  18. The only thing better is the six-player custom cab at Ground Kontrol: 

  19. Holy F! Yes!

  20. Damn it. Why can’t they port this over to Wii!?

  21. I played this as a kid for sure, and at the time, I had no idea who Dazzler was.  Now that I do, I think, "Dazzler?  Really?" She may be a beloved character by some people, but man, her powers are lame ass.  Especially in a video game.

  22. I always picked Dazzler.  

  23. I was always Colossus and I never failed to crack up every time I used his powers. AARGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  24. I’m the best at what I do!! I call Wolverine.

  25. I always picked dazzler as well

  26. Does anyone else remember an infinity gauntlet game that was awfully similar to this. This was a little before my time. But that infinity gauntlet game is the one I want. 

  27. @dizzpozable The recreation process blogs for the cabinet are awesome! What I wouldn’t do for an arcade like Ground Control here in SF…
