Konami details X-Men Arcade

Just one Magento.

Konami's revamp of the old X-Men arcade game - coincidentally named X-Men Arcade - will be released this autumn on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

We also now know that the developer is Backbone Entertainment - the studio favoured by Capcom for all things PSN/XBLA: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, 1942: Joint Strike, Commando 3. There's some experience on the two platforms, then.

Available to play in X-Men Arcade will be Cyclops, Colossus, Dazzler, Nightcrawler, Storm and Wolverine. They'll need to work together to take down the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, key enemies in which are Pyro, Blob, Wendigo, Mystique, White Queen, Juggernaught and Magneto.

Up to four people can co-operate locally, and up to six online. Online drop-in means you can hop in and out without faff. Just select your preferred amount of players, difficulty and level and you'll be matched accordingly. Alternatively you can create your own and play host.

X-Men Arcade will be wrapped up in high-definition graphics, which span gameplay, HUD and menus. There's leaderboard support, too.
