Darn, another title to buy... Megaman X8 has shipped out.

Though I was disappointed in 7... the improvements sound good.

Mega Man X8 features:

Three playable characters with varying strengths and special abilities; Mega Man X - Equipped with his trusty charge shot; Zero - A master of short range attacks with the ability to double jump; Axl - Armed with a spread shot weapon and hovering skills

Enhanced tagteam action - switch between two characters at any time to effectively defeat enemies; Rescue change - standby character can provide backup support when the main character is caught in enemy clutches; Double attack - attack enemies to fill up a special gauge and unleash a powerful two-player simultaneous attack; Recovery gauge - health gauges for standby characters refill according to how well the main character performs in battle; Combo counter - recovery items are only available when dropped by enemies, defeating multiple enemies in a row will increase the combo counter and the rate at which enemies drop these special items

Three Navigator types - Pick a Navigator at the beginning of a stage; each offers a stage strategy, an enemy strategy or story supplements

Collect "metal" from defeated enemies - Use as building blocks for valuable power-up chips

Ability to use weapons obtained from defeated bosses (As if there was any doubt - Ed.)

Multiple story endings and hidden items
