X-Men: Mutant Academy Ships

The X-Men game ships today in conjunction with the movie release.


Activision has shipped X-Men: Mutant Academy for the Sony PlayStation and the Game Boy Color. Coinciding with the nationwide theatrical release of Twentieth Century Fox's X-Men the movie, Mutant Academy features ten playable characters - including Wolverine, Cyclops, Gambit, Beast, Storm, Phoenix, Sabertooth, Mystique, Toad, and Magneto - that appear in both their classic comic and movie costumes. Modes of play in this classic two-player fighting game include academy training, arcade mode, survival mode, and versus mode.

"The X-Men characters are wonderfully suited to the creation of a video game, and X-Men Mutant Academy's stunning graphics and dynamic gameplay have really allowed us to bring to life some of the most popular super heroes of all time," said Steve Crane, senior vice president of Activision Studios. "The game not only draws on the X-Men's 36-year history, but also incorporates elements of the X-Men movie - striking a balance that is sure to appeal to a wide audience."

The PlayStation game also includes bonus material such as X-Men movie clips, behind-the-scenes movie photos, classic comic book covers, and more.
