The Mega Man Maverick Hunter X is a remake of the original Mega Man X title that first appeared on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

The Mega Man Maverick Hunter X story-line is set in the year 21XX where a mysterious robot named X (Dr. Light’s greatest creation) has become the model from which further robots, called Reploids, were created to aid mankind. Unfortunately, some of the Reploids turned against the humans and were given the name Mavericks. In response to this, the Maverick Hunters, an elite squad of Reploids, was formed to combat these renegade Reploids and calm was restored until one of the Maverick Hunters, a powerful Reploid named Sigma, turned against the peacekeepers. Now X and his fellow Maverick Hunter friend, Zero, must prevent Sigma from executing his evil plans to destroy humanity. Although the game still retains the 2D perspective but it is now set in a 3D world. The levels are more detailed and have a lot of things going on in them.
