Should Capcom release a megaman X game for the iphone?

Just a random thought. I think its possible, since it has animated sprites and 2d dimension background. What do you guys think??

Orlando Santos

Beta tested: Zenonia 2, Crazy Cow, Samurai Girl

They could release Legends if they really wanted to, it's not a matter of the hardware, their last one didn't sell too great so they probably won't.

Because it was a Half Assed port with terrible controls. Maybe if they actually tried next time.

And that's the EXACT game I want ported. I've played that game a bit too much on my PS2 and I'd kill to have that one on my iPod.

I dont think X will get a port, even though i'd love yo see that. That's because mms games require LOTS of precision to be played non frustratingly, and the idevice can't deliver such precision.

Isn't Megaman 2 harder than the X games?

If they could spend as much time and effort on the gameplay and controls as they did with SF IV, by all means yes.

Otherwise, please don't ruin Megaman's reputation like Sega did with Sonic. It gives bad name to old-skool platformers.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

Not with continues it isn't... when both of them have continues, X proves to be way harder, also because, X needs to dash, and I can't see a dash button along with all the others and mend it together so for it to work as good as a shoulder button...
