Megaman's just shy of 20 years old, but back in 1993 when he was making the leap from NES to SNES, Capcom re-branded their new and more action packed titles Megaman X. Now the series is still going strong on the PS2 today, but this week PSP gamers can take on the game that started it all. Rather than just a fairly straight forward port such as the one in GameCube's Megaman X Collection earlier this month, this remake is fitted out with full 3D graphics and characters, totally new environments and extra gameplay features that raise the bar for side-scrolling platformers.
Megaman Maverick Hunter X also includes an animated movie that provides real insight into Capcom's universe, and even gives gamers a sneak peek at events that took place before the plot line of the first game. All new cut scenes also have full voice acting, while the levels receive entirely updated background music and sound effects, and after fishing the main game, a whole new story is unlocked where you can play as Vile, X’s arch rival! Plus to ensure even veteran gamers get a real challenge, there's a brand new hard mode, more boss attacks, modified level arrangements with item locations and map layouts, and still more. For the great price of US$ 39.90, Megaman Maverick Hunter X is due this week, so strap on those rocket robo boots and prepare to fire up this legendary platformer.
