To commemorate Mega Man X's 25th anniversary, game designer Ácido Cinza has launched the first promotional trailer for his fan-game, "Maverick Hunter X: Giga Mission".
"Giga Mission" is a side-scrolling action-platformer/beat 'em up starring X in his famous Command Mission duds. The game features a unique blend of Game Boy style sprites (Xtreme 1 and Xtreme 2) with SNES colors. Combat takes place on two planes and, in-between, you'll find yourself navigating traditional platformer segments. Lesser-known X series characters like Steel Massimo, Marty, and Nástenka from the infamous Novas Aventuras de Mega Man comic are available as "assists" to lend a hand in battle. Use 'em wisely to rack up combos!
"Maverick Hunter X: Giga Mission" is due out when it's finished. In the meantime you can follow Ácido Cinza on Twitter for updates and behind-the-scenes goodies!
