Mega Man Legends Heads to the PlayStation Store
The Casketts, Bonnes, Data and Mega Man Volnutt are back now that Mega Man Legends is finally headed to the PlayStation Store.
Capcom has announced that Mega Man Legends is hitting the PlayStation Store next week. Mega Man Legends first launched on the original PlayStation in late 1997. Venturing far from the signature side-scrolling platformer gameplay of the previous Mega Man and Mega Man X titles, this was Capcom's attempt at bringing Rock and Roll to 3D gaming, just as Nintendo was doing around that time with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64. In order to help facilitate gamers to its 3D-style of gameplay, Legends had a much slower pace compared to its side-scrolling predecessors. Instead of having a group of robot masters and a specific level for each one, Mega Man Legends was geared towards dungeon exploration and doing quests for the townsfolk of Kattelox Island.
While Capcom seems pretty much finished with the Mega Man series, having cancelled development of Mega Man Legends 3 a few years ago, co-creator Keiji Inafune and Comcept are working on their own spiritual successor to the Legends series. Unfortunately, Red Ash has been quite controversial as of late, mainly pertaining to its failed crowdfunding campaign and the last-second announcement that the game has a publisher funding it, which it may have had the entire time it was up on Kickstarter.
Unfortunately, there's no word as to whether or not we'll ever see Mega Man Legends 2 hit the PlayStation Store in North America, as it most likely depends on the sales numbers for the first game. Mega Man Legends will hit the PlayStation Store on Sept. 29 for $9.99 and will be playable on PS Vita and PlayStation 3. Despite the game being a PS-One classic, it won't be able to work on the PSP.
