Is Mega Man Powered Up Finally Coming to PSN? (Updated)
Mega Man Powered Up, a re-imagining of the original Mega Man, was released in 2006 for the PSP. In the years to follow, the game has failed to make the digital leap to PlayStation Network. Former Capcom SVP Christian Svennson cited compatibility issues, stating “There are technical problems that neither we or Sony are able to get around. The game doesn’t run properly when put in digital form. So it’s physical only for the time being."
Today, however, there is a renewed chance of hope. Mega Man Powered Up is one among 700 digitally compatible titles for PlayStation TV in Europe. If the listing is correct, Powered Up will be joined by its Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X counterpart on or near the hardware's launch in Europe on November 14th. Powered Up does not, however, appear on the US PS TV titles (though more titles are subject to be added later).
Pending official word from Capcom, this could really go either way. Right now we can't say for certain if this is an early leak or a simple mistake. We will keep you posted nevertheless.
UPDATE: MMPU has been removed from the list. The plot thickens.
