Mega Man Maverick Hunter X is a remake of the first Mega Man X game, now with the ability to play as Vile, capsule locations switched around, and an anime OVA explaining the treachery of Sigma. The game was meant to remake the entire X sub-series, but like Mega Man: Powered Up, poor sales prevented any further games.


Regional Differences

The game is simply referred as Irregular Hunter X in Japan, without any Rockman branding. To make it more obvious, Mega Man was added to the international versions' name.

As with all Mega Man X games after the CD-ROM version of X3 (except in X6), the Japanese and international versions featured different opening songs. The Japanese version uses "Don't Wanna Be" by Spinwake, while international versions opt for an original instrumental track.
