PRC contributor Jesse took the liberty of purchasing the oddity that is Mega Man X8 for the Game Boy Advance, a pirated cartridge that popped up on ebay a while back.
Essentially, the game is nothing more than an emulated copy of Mega Man 4 (NES) with two minor oddities:
- The boot up screen is a strange modification of Mega Man Zero 4's. (pic)
- The real title screen, that of Mega Man 4's, is a slight edit of the original source, lacking the roman numerals "IV." (pic)
Other than that, the game is MM4 through and through. Truly unfortunate too as I was expecting something along the lines of an adaption of X8, similar to what they did with the common Rockman 8 Game Boy pirate,an 8-bit "recreation" of the PSX/Saturn title. Seen below:
