View Full Version : Mega Man 4 headed for PSN

September 5th, 2011, 19:14
The game, according to reports, will hit the US PSN this week as a PSone Import title, which you might find strange since the game WAS released worldwide - on its original platform, the NES, in 1992-3.

The 1999 PSone re-release, however, was only let loose in Japan and that's the version that will obviously be used for the PSN release.

Mega Man 4 was notable for being the first game in the classic series in which you could charge up your shot before firing - something which upset Mega Man purists but a mechanic we loved as care-free nippers.

It also stars a new main villain, with Dr. Cossack taking the spotlight from the long-running bad man Dr. Wily.

As usual for PSone games on PSN, Mega Man 4 will be playable on both PS3 and PSP. Look out for this week's full PSN update release list soon.
