Now, the latest version of the Mega Man X line has arrived in another game as a new DLC for Minecraft.

Includes skins based on X, the game’s “Mega Man”, his colorful weaponized forms and companion Zero. In addition, all of the game’s levels have been recreated in Minecraft architecture, as well as boss battles against Mavericks such as Chill Penguin and Storm Eagle, as well as the recurring villain Vile, right up to the very final boss Sigma.
The new DLC pack has been unveiled on the official Minecraft website, with Nintendo announcing that the content is also available for Switch game version. The DLC trailer, shared across all of the announcements, showcases levels played in classic side-scroll mode, of course, alongside multiplayer options and classic music tracks included. All of those announcements just dropped when the content was released on Tuesday, a nice surprise for fans in Mega Man X’s 30th anniversary year.
The Mega Man X DLC is available through the Minecraft Marketplace for whatever device you play on for 1340 Minecraft Coins. That’s about eight dollars in real money.
