Is this real?! Hello, is this thing on?! Many had long written off the Mega Man Legends games getting a PlayStation Network release, mostly because Capcom had flat out said that it would never happen. It mentioned something about copyright test failed and trademark issues with the voice acting, the kind of bureaucratic purgatory that gets in the way of gamers' enjoyment.
However, Capcom has never really directly mentioned the status of Mega Man Legend's sole spin-off, The Misadventures of Tron Bonne. This goofy puzzle game starring Mega Man's antagonist/love interest Tron Bonne and her army of servbots has just been inexplicably and unexpectedly rated by the ESRB, meaning that it is headed for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita as a PSOne Classic!
This is excellent news for fans of the old PlayStation game who don't want to shell out the $200+ The Misadventures of Tron Bonne can go for on Amazon's secondhand market.
The Misadventures of Tron Bonne is a puzzle spin-off of the Mega Man Legends series in which the titular Tron Bonne travels around the world to dig up epic loot. How does she accomplish this? Well, through servbot management, boss fights, mini-games, and endless box pushing puzzles, that's how! It's a pretty solid game, but it's not really up to snuff with Mega Man Legends or Mega Man Legends 2 thanks to its obviously slashed budget.
I'll take it, though! Anything for another chance to jump into this beautiful gaming universe. The Mega Man Legends games are home to some of the best storytelling and characters of the PlayStation era, so you can guess why fans are so desperate for digital re-releases and a little closure through a sequel.
This is just a rumor until Capcom confirms otherwise. Remember, it took Suikoden II almost a year to come out after its ESRB rating leaked. I never forgot about it then, and I won't forget about this now, Capcom. You gotta follow through. This is a perfect game to play on a Vita!
My only real question though is wondering if The Misadventures of Tron Bonne falls under the same legal mumbo-jumbo umbrella that the other two games do. If so, then perhaps the situation has been resolved, and Mega Man Legends can be re-released! If not, then at least we got this rare, forgotten gem out of it.
Keep your eyes crossed and your fingers peeled for official confirmation. Wait a minute…
