Mega Man X Kicks Maverick Butt In Fan-made Video

In honor of Mega Man's 25th anniversary, fan Shane Newville (via Rooster Teeth's YouTube channel) created a homemade video of Mega Man X beating the rivets out of some Mavericks. The 3D characters models look great as they sail through the air, performing gritty martial arts combos while X peppers in a few buster shots here and there.

The video below offers a tantalizing glimpse into what may have become of future 3D Mega Man X games. I love the evenly matched battle between Zero and X, but my favorite moment involves Vile and an enormous fan blade. Be sure to stick around after the credits for a teaser.

What do you think of the video? Would you have liked to see a Mega Man X game in this style?
