I can handle Mega Man's anniversary, but it's crazy to think that Mega Man X is getting ready to celebrate 20 years since its release on Super Nintendo.

Hey, it worked for Samus, right? That might have been some of the thought process behind Maverick Hunter, a Mega Man X first-person shooter that was being created at Armature Studio, home to some of the developers behind the Metroid Prime series.
