To do:
In the 2nd PC CD of Mega Man X8, there's a folder of Japanese voice actors' sound data, including the main character's voice as Navigators. Document it.

Mega Man X8 is the last game in the Mega Man X series. Sadly, it was released in limited numbers due to X7's poor sales. Fortunately, this was mitigated with the release of the X Legacy Collection.

Unused Graphics

Screens used in demo versions of the game are present in the final version.

Unused Audio Clips

When using the Ultimate Armor, X can perform a Shoryuken with Up + Triangle, but his audio bank contains a "Hadou-Ken" voice clip which is not used anywhere in the game.

Since Alia is an analog character to X, she has all of his corresponding voice clips, including the Shoryuken and Hadou-Ken clips. However, Alia does not have access to the Ultimate Armor to perform either of these.

Regional Differences

Once again, a different European title screen, and a far uglier one to boot, suffering the same fate as the Zero series on the GBA in Europe.

Opening Song

Japan International

The opening song in the Japanese version is "Wild Fang" by Janne Da Arc, while the International versions use an instrumental song instead.
