DescriptionYears after the Reploid Wars, all seems peaceful in the world. But peace was not meant to last forever. When the "Eurasia" space colony is attacked by an unknown virus, the call goes out! X and Zero are called back into action to help destroy the colony, which is now on a collision course with Earth, and is expected to collide into the planet in only 16 hours! At the same time, Sigma, the archenemy of the Maverick Hunters, shows up again...
Mega Man X5 retains the gameplay style of the previous games, adding new features such as advanced Maverick AI, bigger and more challenging stages, and new gameplay elements: ducking and swinging on vines and ropes.

TriviaIn what is probably their most contraversial move ever, Capcom U.S.A. renamed the Mavericks in Mega Man X5 and named them after the band Guns 'N Roses. Here are the American names of the Mavericks (proper names in parentheses):
Grizzly Slash (Crescent Grizzly), Squid Adler (Bolt Kraken), Izzy Glow (Shining Firefly), Duff McWhalen (Tidal Whale), The Skivver (Spiral Pegasus), Axel the Red (Spiked Rosered), Dark Dizzy (Dark Necrobat), and Mattrex (Burn Dinorex).
What's next? Is Mega Man X6's Maverick lineup going to be named after Metallica? Better hope not...
