Mega Man X5, known in Japan as Rockman X5 (ロックマンX5, Rokkuman X5) is the fifth entry in the main X series, developed and published by Capcom for the PlayStation in 2000-2001, and later ported to Windows in some regions.


Back from his death in the previous game, Sigma causes a huge explosion that spreads the Sigma Virus across the globe. To make matters worse, the giant space colony Eurasia begins to fall to the Earth. In response to the emergency, Hunter Base fights through mass panic to execute the Enigma and Space Shuttle operations to destroy Eurasia. However, this situation threatens to awaken the true Zero that X never knew: a fearsome Zero who burns with hostility towards him.[1]
