MEGA MAN X is Getting An Unofficial Port To The Sega Genesis!
I am a big fan of the Mega Man X franchise! a new version of the original Mega Man X is being made for the Sega Genesis by homebrew programmer TiagoSC. The project is in development right now but I just got to know about. A demo of the games intro level can be seen below so check it out!
Genesis homebrew scene has been achieving over the last few years is nothing short of astounding. For this demo, in particular, it is excellent to see colors so perfect to the SNES original. Lighting effects on the lamp posts are missing from this version but perhaps we might see that effect achieved in a later version! TiagoSC has also executed some sound effects and voice clips from later X games. This is most obvious when X releases a charged shot or when listening to Vile’s Ride Armor. While not present in the original I think it adds a new level to the game. Music also sounds closer to the original than I expected it would be and makes for an entertaining companion piece for what the 2 sound chips were capable of. I am impressed with the new project and looking forward to having it.
