The Mega Man X series is a continuation of the Classic series, in both plot and gameplay style. First introduced in 1993, it brings to life Mega Man X, the last creation of the famous robot scientist, Dr. Thomas Light.

X is a brand new kind of robot - he actually possesses the ability to think, feel, and make his own decisions. Dr. Light realized the potential disaster this could cause, and sealed X away in a capsule for testing. The capsule is unearthed 100 years later by Dr. Cain, who was on an archaeological expedition for Mesozoic plant life.

X's subsequent study by Cain spawns a new race of robots dubbed"Reploids", but chaos soon ensues when some Reploids decide that humans are inferior... And at the heart of it all is a dark element that dates back to 20XX...
