X-Men: Destiny
X-Men Destiny's Brand New Character Revealed
Written By
View author's profile

Developer Silicon Knights has created an all-new character especially for its upcoming action RPG, X-Men Destiny, introducing Japanese schoolgirl, Aimi Yoshida to the X-Men canon. Smuggled out of her home country amid anti-mutant hysteria, Aimi has strong mental focus and an extraordinary acrobatic fighting style.

Her mutant power appears to be this mental focus ability, which also enables her to perform amazing feats of agility. You can see her for the first time in these new screenshots from X-Men Destiny, showing 15-year old Aimi fighting alongside fellow X-Men Gambit and Colossus.

Activision and Silicon Knights have tentatively pencilled X-Men Destiny in for release later this year.

Hell yeah for a random character I've never heard of before despite being a huge X-Men fan since infancy. xD

Apparently they're hoping to slot the new characters into the Marvel universe before the games released!

wow, I can't remember one x-men comic where the anti mutant hysteria in japan was worse than in the U.S. I'd rather have all mutants smuggled out of America. ;D

Anyway, pictures looks great. Another Marvel game for me.

Colossus! My f'n man!! If Nightcrawler is involved, I'm so getting this.

@ 2 - X-Men are prime but don't sell the Avengers short. In terms of true power, minus Professor-X, The Avengers have The Hulk and Thor, two of the mightiest heroes in the universe next to Magneto, Prof and The Sentry (without his agoraphobia). It would be a tough decision but after the events of World War Hulk, I put all my money on the Avengers. The original ones anyway since that's when Hulk was present on the team. However, he's too unpredictable so I leave myself on a 50/50 scale.

@ 11 - X-Men Legends 1 and 2 were pretty darn good. I feel they get slumped in with MUA which was okay but suffered story and dialogue issues and minor gameplay bugs. My opinion though.

Gambit just looks plain silly, he's got the praying mantis "look in two different directions" thing going.

because the other 300 x-men characters that are already established in the comics are not enough here's a new character that looks more pointless than jubilee

Being serious, X-MEN Legends 1 and 2 were awesome so anything like that and you can colour me interested!

@ 18 - I'm not too interested in the new broad. I took lightly and did like Magma from Legends 2 but I dunno. I feel they have enough characters in the general Marvel Universe already. I thought they took a risk by creating alternate universes due to rehasing stories but they did a lot of good tie-ins. My favorite being the Marvel Zombies. Such a graphic and out there project.

BTW - You've got a helluva response to make on our page convo.

@13 - Nightcrawler will most likely NOT be in the game if they hold to the current X-Men canon, since he's dead. I hope this game is good. It's looking like they need to tighten up the graphics a bit though...

"Aimi has strong mental focus and an extraordinary acrobatic fighting style."

So being a stereotypical over-worked Japanese child is her mutant power? Bazinga!

Wtf did they do to Gambit? and good idea SK, let's add Japanese schoolgirls to every game. Main character in MW3? Japanese school girl. Next villain in ME3? Japanese school girl. I can't believe no one else ever thought of this..

@ 22 - Bah! I've been backed up on my X-Men lore. He'll be back. Colossus came back, Jean Grey came back and Cap came back. Everyone does so here's hoping. Colossus and Nightcrawler are my faves. While I love the Arcade release, I actually wish they would make a better "updated" one based off the Pryde of the X-men movie but the XBLA title is damn close since it uses the core characters from that animated adventure.

"No place to hide, no place to run. The mutant age (the mutant age) has now begun! X-men!" Probably my favorite ringtone lol

Anyone notice how similar Colossus and the big hulking dude are in the pics? Could that perhaps be a "twist"? That something goes horribly wrong with some experiment, or whatever, and you're now battling hulking versions, physically mutated versions of your former teammates?

Oh well, either way, probably a pre-order for me, unless some gameplay comes out that really, REALLY turns me off.

No not Silicon Knights! I thought they were done after Too Human. I know I should be supporting them becasue they are a) canadian and b) like 20 mins away from me but shit this game is screwed.

An acrobatic young female? I'll hold back my surprise.

I actually haven't been keeping up with this but it looks pretty nice. Fingers crossed it's better than MUA!
