X-Men: Apocalypse is just around the corner and if you’re as excited as us for the movie you’re loving the promotional material surrounding the movie’s release. As part of these promotions to hype up the imminent release of the new movie, 20th Century Fox has unveiled three fake X-Men arcade games that you can really play.
These X-Men arcade games are set in 1983 in a world where a peace has been struck between mutants and humans and they are able to co-exist. This means that mutant culture and human culture have started to combine. Pop culture in this alternate past features references to both cultures and mutant culture is now entwined into gaming culture as well.
The three X-Men arcade games are:
Mutant All-Stars Track & Field
Revenge of Hero X
You can play all three these games over at SpacePortArcade.com
X-Men: Apocalypse stars Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier and Oscar Isaac as the immortal Apocalypse. The movie was directed by Bryan Singer and is set to hit cinemas in May 2016.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
