Famitsu has got their hands on exclusive screens of the first Rockman X getting remade completely for iOS units, like the iPhone, iPad and so on.






The Famitsu page mentions that the iOS version is based off a current phone version of the game. Not only will it have touch panel support, but it will also have GameCenter support for a Ranking mode. The game will feature 80 challenges that you can attempt and show off your Rockmantastic skills to everyone (this is similar to achievements or trophies).

The game is said to come out anytime this month. Currently, it's only been announced for the Japanese App Store. A price hasn't been set yet, but we'll let you know if more info shows up.

UPDATE:
7 minutes of video footage is now available to show the game in motion.

I like how the Stage Select mugshots are MHX while the in-game boss design is clearly SNES. XD

Isn't this a bad idea? I thought MM2's touch controls were universally hated, and there's no way this could be better at that :X

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

The graphics are reminiscent of a flash game.

I would like to believe that the Mugshots are placeholders as they look terribly out of place with the rest of the game.

The backgrounds are just the originals upscaled with a crappy filter. Looks pretty lame to be honest.

No dash button. I see no dash button. That's not good.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Either you double-tap forward, or wait until a button shows up after you stepped inside the Boots capsule.

Then again, X is fighting Icy Penguigo without the Boots activated. >0<

Wait a second, I just noticed that. Hah, he bypassed the capsule? probably sos to not show off the armor yet? (then why not use another boss?)

Actually, a dash button popping up once you've gotten the boots makes sense.

How can I observe the gameplay when my fat thumbs will cover at least 1/3 of the screen?

This news doesn't seem very exciting.
In fact, I feel a bit dissapointed.

But I guess this is good news for those Mega Man X fans with iphones/iPads.
Plus some small Mega Man news in general.

The sprites look nice.

The mugshots look out of place

The background looks awful

It's not the first time Megaman games have had inconsistencies with boss sprites and mugshots... =w=;

It's understandable the background couldn't get the same treatment as the sprites, and the filter looks fine to me. ^^;

The sprites look very nice! <3

Looks like it just came out. Apparently there is word that Western users may get it sometime soon. Also, it sounds like Japan has a bug with ppl buying the full game, only to find out its the demo. Hope everthing gets settled there.

And to think I was trying to remain optimistic about it.

Now all they need to do is blame its possible financial failure on the fans.


...I know it's highly unlikely, but seriously, this is one half of that scenario that I was assured wouldn't happen. And at a time like this? I'm starting to think I might've jinxed it. :(

Stages aren't on one continuous map anymore? It looks like an MSX game now. And wow at the Easy Mode. You take less damage, get more health back from pickups, and there are platforms over most pits. Not that MMX needed it; the game's pretty easy for a Mega Man game.

Yes, being able to buy all the upgrades is stupid. But if someone's that weaksauce at Mega Man X and they or their parents have the bucks to spare, that's their problem. However, if you are able to start any game with everything you've bought, that might be fun to play around with, like freeplay in Maverick Hunter X. Hadoken-ing the Bee Bladers is fun.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

Hey, it's not that bad. They could use Comic Sans.
