Mega Man X8, known as Rockman X8 (ロックマンX8) in Japan, is a video game developed by Capcom for the Sony PlayStation 2 console. It is the eighth and, to date, final game in the Mega Man X series (excluding spin-offs and remakes). It was first released in North America on December 7, 2004. The PS2 version, as well as a PC iteration, were released in Japan and Europe the following year. On December 16 2015, it was released on PlayStation Network in Japan. It is planned for a future release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Summer 2018.

The plot of Mega Man X8 focuses on the abduction of a next-generation “Reploid” from the construction site of a space elevator, and the subsequent pursuit of his captors. During the course of game play the motivations of these captors comes into focus, and it is up to the heroes, led by Mega Man X, to stop them. The gameplay of Mega Man X8 is similar to the other games in the series, in which the player must complete a series of stages. Defeating their bosses will earn that player character its special weapon.

Although Mega Man X8 uses 3D graphics like Mega Man X7, the development team chose not to opt for 3D gameplay, instead opting for 2.5D gameplay. The game was met with a positive critical reception.

  1. I am a 16 year old male, not a die hard fan of megaman whatsoever but possibly over 10 years ago, I owned a ps2 and had this game. Ever since I stopped playing video games this game was still in my subconscious and deja vues, id remember parts of the game constantly (keep in mind I was around 5 years old so I never got the name of the game or what the storyline went on about). All I remember was certain parts of the game and that you would switch between characters including a blue character that shoots fireballs/ lazers out of his arm (funny, I know.) I decided to look it up because it was such a big part of my childhood and I am so glad I did. This is a blast from the past, hearing all of these sound effects and the looking at all the stages again, it feels unreal. I still own my ps2 so im debating wether or not I should buy the game and experience it all again. Thank you for reading.
