At a Comic-Con New York panel, Marvel revealed that Konami will bring X-Men, its side-scrolling arcade beat-em-up from 1992, to the Xbox 360 and PS3 as a downloadable title. [Updated with the game's Comic-Con trailer, see inside.]

Fans of the game remember that you could play as one of six X-Men: Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler. After blasting through Sentinels and boss characters from the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, it was off to Magneto's Asteroid M to save Professor X and Kitty Pryde.

This port will feature drop-in online multiplayer supporting up to six players and variable difficulty levels.

No release date was specified. We'll have more details here as they come out.

Maximum Carnage was mad dope; I never could get to that Statue of Liberty stage; there is no code to get there; it just occurs randomly; I loved Separation Anxiety even more; I used to love to spit over the stage one music; that techno beat was mad dope.
