I Lied. There's More To Be Said. And It's About The X-Men.

X-Men: The Arcade Game was an awesome six-person, co-op beat 'em up released by Konami in an era when the company could do no wrong with its licensed games.

Regardless of your opinion on Sniktbub and the rest of Marvel's freaks, if you saw that machine in an arcade you were drawn to it, like Galactus to a planet full of Skrulls, simply because an arcade cabinet made for six people was the coolest thing on Earth back in 1992.

If your brain is suddenly flooded with happy nostalgia juice, I've got good news for you. That game, along with its six-player, co-operative play is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

No word on when it's scheduled for release, or how much the game will cost, but the anticipation should be enough to occupy your geek boner until the magical day that it does appear in the online queue.

'Nuff Said! (For realsies this time!)
