In 2007, Konami teamed up with Ubisoft to release the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game on Xbox Live Arcade. The move prompted a number of requests for other licensed Konami arcade beat-'em-ups like The Simpsons and X-Men. Three years later, one of those requests is being granted.

Konami announced today that 1992's X-Men arcade brawler will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3's downloadable game services later this year. It will mark the first time the game will receive a home release on any platform.

As in the original arcade game, players will get to pick from the mutant super group's roster and take on Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants to save the world.
