You can stop wondering when X-Men Arcade is going to surface as Konami has confirmed to IGN that the game is coming as soon as next week.

X-Men Arcade is a re-issue of the 1992 classic with support for local four-player co-op, online six-player and drop-in and drop-out multiplayer. There will also be online leaderboards and HD menus. Marvellous.

Look out for X-Men Arcade on the Xbox Live Arcade on December 15th. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.

I would love it to be 400 points but I guess 800 points is a more realistic expectation.

I remember going down to arcade and playing this with my buddies. Great game. I hope it's not too expensive, otherwise I'll wait for a DotW. Although it's totally worth the starting price ;)

I'm sitting at 49,000 and waiting till Dec. 13 for a friendly competition where I'll be racing to get 1,000 in Afro Samurai.. Can I finish before the 15th? God I hope so.. the plan is to land on 50k with AS.. Sorry X-Men you may have to wait to be played a couple days.

Man, this is probably THE best thing to release on XBLA. The only thing that would literally make this better, is if they re-released the home video version to DVD of Pryde of the X-Men. Probably the best X-Men cartoon ever made and it was a standalone "movie". Cannot wait to wreck fools as good old Peter Rasputin!

I'm begging for it to be 400, just like TMNT 1989 was 400.
Konami bring The Simpsons Arcade.
Microsoft give us a date for Quake Arena Arcade.

I love the new generation of gaming. STORY TIME. About six years ago I was a freshman in High School. By this time, most arcades were already closed/closing. Except one by my school. My friend and I went a few times a week and this game somehow always drew us to it and swallowed our lunch money with ease.

Now that we're adults, we have lives of our own. Some went to college, some moved to work in other cities, and two of us are in the military. The fact that we can relive our freshman year from five different parts of the world is fucking amazing. From New York City, Korea, Germany, etc...we can all sit down at the end of a day, hop on live and relive a time when things were simpler and life seemed so complicated for how simple it was.

The fact we can download a part of our childhood to share again...I can't really justify how amazing it is.

Sweet! Now bring Killer Instinct, Battletoads arcade, and 1991 Spider-Man arcade and then my arcade collection would be complete.

You can only hope for 400, but a solid 800 points is a good bet. Though 1200 does seem to be the trend these days on XBLA, so who knows. Only time will tell.

What?! Next Week?! You've got to be kidding me! I have SO many unfinished games and I JUST got Wii; and now X-Men is coming next week!! Ahhhhhhhhh!!

But this is definitely good news, though! I didn't think this game would get out that early. Wow. I probably won't buy it day one (since I'm so busy with other games) but definitely will buy it as soon as Christmas is over.

This will be like going back in time to when arcades were popular and this one was one of the most popular with TMNT.Now if Konami is going to the trouble of redoing this one how bout the Avengers game also while were dreaming.Killer Instinct would be great,The original NBA Jam,and how about some Saturn and Dreamcast games.(did read a rumor that there is a dream cast collection being worked on)
