Activision has revealed a list of features that will be found in X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse.  They include:

  • Players Fight as Favorite X-Men and Others – Gamers pick from their favorite X-Men – Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm or Rogue - as they go up against Apocalypse’s minions in a battle to return to their own dimension. As players progress through the game, they can unlock 16 X-Men friends and foes to battle it out in Versus mode.
  • Multiple Gameplay Modes – X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse features a Story mode and Versus mode, which allows players to have adventurous, side-scrolling fun as well as head-to-head fighting game action.
  • Signature Moves – A simplified fighting system allows gamers to easily pull off devastating signature moves, drawing strength from a mutant power reserve. Each playable character unleashes unique moves utilizing their specific super heroTM abilities.
  • Build Character – Gamers score experience points for using brute strength and special mutant powers to overcome enemies. At the end of each level, players can use these points to improve character statistics by increasing strength, vitality and mutant power. As the player progresses through the game, their character becomes a more and more powerful X-Man.


A bit like the original X-Men arcade game by description and similar to the Genesis X-Men title in graphics, X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse could prove to be the best X-Men game yet, and it’s only for Game Boy Advance.

In the story mode, the X-Men are stranded in an alternate universe, which they must fight their way out of, while confronting villains and former friends from their own universe all the while. Over 40 classic X-Men characters will be featured in the game. Playable characters will include Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, and Cyclops, each with their own signature moves. You’ll also earn experience points at the end of each level, which you can use to upgrade each character’s various stats.

The folks at Activision were also nice enough to include a versus mode, in which up to four players can battle it out using their favorite characters, thanks to the GBA ink cable. Unfortunately, each person will need their own copy of the game to play.

X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse is due out sometime this fall.
