New-Old Mega Man Legends 3 Artwork Uncovered

Toss this one into the archives: here's a newly found, but old, piece official Mega Man Legends 3 artwork. This obscure nugget briefly appeared at Nico Nico Moba. It was a mobile wallpaper distributed through NicoNico Moba long before the game was cancelled. For the time being, the original, full-res piece is confined to an aging mobile device. We're working on it, though.

Nevertheless this is a welcome look at the dynamic Rock & Roll duo in their would-be Legends 3 duds. Right-click, save as, and treasure it!

Mega Man Legends Hits PSN Today (Updated)

Don't get too excited - it's not up yet. Somewhere around 5PM-9PM EST, Mega Man Legends will finally, finally arrive on PlayStation Network in North America. The 1998 action-RPG classic will run you $9.99, playable on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Due to unspecified complications, the game is not playable on PSP. UPDATE: It's out! And speak of the devil, it works on PSP despite early reports.

It's no secret Mega Man Legends is among my top favorite games. You'll pardon my bias when I say it's an under-appreciated gem of the 32-bit era. It's disheartening that Ocarina of Time tends to overshadow the accomplishments of Legends; innovations largely ignored and overlooked to this day. If you're playing the game for the first time, put yourself in that mid-nineties mindset. Be mindful of facial animations, fully-voiced cutscenes, 3D "dungeons" -- hell, even primordial Z-targeting. Really cool stuff for the time.

So here it is. Whether you're playing it for the first or hundredth time, I hope you enjoy.
