Review: Mega Man X (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Mega Man X (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Marks the spot

By the time Mega Man X was released for the SNES, gamers and critics were already expressing concern about the classic series feeling stale. Mega Man had become formulaic and predictable, and while the NES games were still a lot of fun, there was no denying that they didn't evolve much from title to title. Mega Man X felt like a firm...

X marks the spot

Mega Man X, Capcom's first entry in the 'X' series of games for the Blue Bomber, is set to release on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America this week, on the 30th May; considering how synchronised many of the Wii U VC releases have been to date, there are decent odds that it'll also arrive in Europe's next download update...
