Rockman 1 Complete Works On PSN Tomorrow *UPDATE*

The Complete Works version of Rockman 1 hits the Japanese PlayStation Store tomorrow, August 12th. The download will run you a mere 600 Yen (about $6).

Fortunately, there is no region restriction for PlayStation Store, meaning you can purchase the game even though you don't live in Japan. All you need is a Japanese PSN account (free) and a credit card. A step-by-step guide on setting up a Japanese PSN account here.

UPDATE: Scratch that about credit cards. The JPN PlayStation Store does not accept non-Japanese credit cards. What you can do, however, is purchase a Japanese PlayStation Network card in order to redeem Yen. Instructions on how to find and use a Japanese PSN card, here.


  1. Will the trophies you earn (if any here) from your JPN PSN account show up on your other PSN account?

  2. Wow, 600yen isn't bad. I've already got the real discs though, I dunno if I wanna dump another 3600en for games I already own. The only reason I would want them is to be able to play them on my PS3. I wish someone would put out a mod chip for it so I can get rid of my modded PSX and play imports on PS3.

  3. As long as you buy it with your JPN account, you can play it on your regular account still and get the trophies. Any trophies earned on the JPN account itself though aren't transferred to yours.

  4. Yay its out ^^

    You can also buy them using a Japanese PSN card. I know you can get those from Play Asia.
