Mega Man X now available on iOS


Capcom today announced the Mega Man X App is now available on the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch. The classic action game stars X, the final creation of Dr. Light, who must thwart the nefarious Sigma and his army of renegade reploid robots from destroying the human race. X utilizes a vast arsenal of weapons as he fights through multiple stages and faces off against powerful foes. The new version includes several powered-up features to enhance the action for iPhone and iPod touch including optimized graphics, difficulty options, rankings and more.

Mega Man X can be displayed in Regular Format or in a Full Mode that utilizes the entire screen. An on-screen visual control pad and action buttons keep the game play fast and fluid. A customize option provides quick access to standard game setting changes and special iOS device-only cheat moves. These include auto-fire, auto-charge and auto-ladder latch-on which offer helpful shortcuts to aid players in progressing through the game. Also to help action game newcomers, an Easy Mode features added platforms that make level progression much more accessible, while Normal Mode allows more skilled gamers to enjoy the game in its true form.

With support for Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements, Mega Man X provides plenty of replay incentives. The Story Mode allows playthrough of the main game with the added layer of 80 challenges that can be achieved. In Ranking Mode, players aim for high scores and measure their results against others.

The Mega Man X App is available for $4.99/£2.99/€3.99/¥450 from the App Store.
