X-Men Arcade Hitting XBLA Next Week, PSN in February Due to Exclusivity

Rejoice, X-box X-fans, for the X-box Live Arcade version of Konami's vintage beat 'em up X-Men Arcade will be released on December 15. Unfortunately, Eurogamer reports, an X-clusivity deal means that it won't be released on PlayStation 3 until February.


Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix porter Backbone Entertainment has tarted it up with "drop-in" online co-op for up si-X players, difficulty settings and, IGN says, an option to play the powerup-packing Japanese edition.

X-Men Arcade's price has yet to be unveiled. In the meantime, we suggest you relax with the soothing remixed beats and samples of the announcement trailer.
