Minecraft Gets Some Surprise Mega Man X Themed DLC Today

Minecraft's latest DLC pack brings costumes and weapons inspired by Capcom's iconic Mega Man X series.

With absolutely no warning whatsoever, developer Mojang has shadow-dropped some Mega Man X-themed DLC for Minecraft. Packing 14 classic skins and an arsenal of nine classic weapons, a short trailer shows off what looks like recreations of classic stages from the different games in the series.

In an awesome move, this Minecraft DLC features a sidescrolling perspective for its levels to really emulate the classic Mega Man X style. You can also team up with friends and battle Chill Penguin, Sting Chameleon, Armored Armadillo, and Storm Eagle, as well as the dastardly Sigma, with nostalgic music and sound effects.

As you can guess, you’ll be able to adorn your characters with costumes based on X and Zero and wield iconic weapons, such as the mega buster and Z-saber. You won’t be limited to the heroes, either, as you can don armor from any of the robot masters and even Dr. Wily.

Said levels are based on recreations from the series. With the focus being primarily on the first Mega Man X, you’ll likely be able to trek across locales such as Snow Mountain, the Forest, and Sigma’s Hideout. During your travels, you’ll collect bolts that can be used to upgrade your abilities with the option to buy heart containers and extra lives. Players will probably have the ability to create their own levels using parts from this DLC, too.

The Mega Man X DLC pack is available for Minecraft through the in-game marketplace. It should be accessible on all platforms that are currently being supported (sorry Wii U, New 3DS, and Vita players).
