Colbert's Late Show snuck in a musical tribute to Mega Man X's title theme

Thanks to this tweet from GoNintendo we have that moment captured forever (or at least until CBS takes it down). Batiste kind of innocuously snuck this one in and the sax sounds absolutely fantastic!

This isn't the first time that Colbert and company have flaunted their love for games. Along with Jimmy Fallon, Colbert has hosted numerous musical gaming homages, including The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses.
