Remember that story about the Mega Man X iOS remake? At the time, it was only confirmed for Japan, but now comes word that it will arrive in the West... today. That's right. You can buy it tonight for $3.99.

Hmmm... strong choice of font. Nice cut-to-black screen transitions, too. It's cool how the zoomed-in view makes it so that Vile looks like he's dropping down from space rather than from a flying warship. The music that plays during X and Zero's heart-to-heart is tossed out so that Zero's theme can keep looping. The unnecessary loading that was never there in the SNES game only adds to the anticipation of the battles ahead. And look! You can also buy all the weapons and armor upgrades with real money without having to acquire them the proper way!
