Some details on the game from Official Xbox Magazine:

* The tone of the game is said to be "dark, mature, & intense" striving towards an adult feel, but a Mature rating is said to not be likely.

* San Francisco is divided into human & non-human sectors as Professor X is dead.

* The game starts with a peace rally being staged to pay tribute to Professor X, which is when you are prompted to pick one of three characters in the crowd.

* OXM's Activision guide chose Adrian Luca as their character.

* The game presents the player with frozen in time "decision moments", indicating its time for players to make a big choice. The first big choice in the game allows you to pick your power archetype ranging from being able to manipulate matter and your body mass, energy projection, or a third one that was kept a secret.

* The game allows you to decide who is friend or foe in the X-Men universe.

* Cyclops, Quicksilver, Surge, Magneto, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, & Gambit are confirmed to make an appearance in the title, with plenty more to be announced.

* X-Genes play a rather large role in the game, ranging from boss fights to deciding to give it to an X-Men, or someone else to form another alliance.

* Linking together a good amount of attacks will fill up your "Mutant power" meter, allowing you to pull off even stronger special attacks.

* One of the special attacks described as a part of the "Mutant power" meter was "Force Pillars". The attack was said to produce crowd clearing beams that rise from the ground.

Character Bio: Aimi Yoshida

Age: 15

Height: 5’ 1’’

Weight: 95lbs

Character Description

Balance Summary: Small in size but strong in mental focus, Aimi is the mutant ability expert. She specializes in efficient mutant power usage. Aimi’s fighting style is very acrobatic and graceful.

Back story: Smuggled out of Japan by her mutant parents before the entire family could be rounded up and incarcerated in the new mutant camps, Aimi arrives in San Francisco hidden on a tanker ship. She is too young and frightened to appreciate her parents’ motivations for sending her away, and instead feels only the bitterness and anger of abandonment.

Am I the only one that read that 5 times and still doesn't understand what her powers are?

She's the mutant ability expert.....maybe she steals people's powers and uses them against them.

Also, her look makes me think of her.
