According to the official PlayStation Blog, Rockman Complete Works, the enhanced port of the Mega Man 1, is set to release on the North American PlayStation Store this week.
The title will release under the PSOne Japan Classics label, so do expect the game to retain its original Japanese presentation (in other words, the game won't be translated into English). A price wasn't specified, but if previous Japan Classics are any indication, it will be a tad higher than the usual PSOne classics. UPDATE: According to jgonzo, the game will cost you $5.99.
Pretty exciting news, if you ask me. This marks the first time a Complete Works title has released outside of Japan (and no, Anniversary Collection doesn't quite count). The game should be up for download tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
Just received a text message about this from a friend of mine. Considering I haven't been able to buy a Rockman Box yet this will do till then.ReplyDelete
Awesome. It's about time they've decided to bring this to the U.S. I just wish they would have translated it first, but ah, well. It's better than nothing at all, I guess.ReplyDelete
I'll really be looking forward to seeing the Complete Works versions of Rockman 3-6 make their way to Playstation Network eventually.
I will probably download this, after all, it will contain the gameplay modes and data viewers and such that the MMAC ports removed. Sadly it wont have the pocketstation connectivity of course. =PReplyDelete
Might have to invest in a new memory stick.ReplyDelete
Disappointment. I have them already but it would be nice for them to be translated into English. No wonder Capcom is lazy!ReplyDelete
That's awesome. I really hope they bring in the Complete Works versions of Rockman 2 - 6.ReplyDelete
i'll buy it if it's in HD.ReplyDelete
I am thinking of buying this for sure I alwasy counted MMAC as it because I gave up on us evering geting Complete worksReplyDelete
now if all they release is 1 and not 2-6 then i will go back to counting MMAC as this
lets hope they release the rest of them
Yea, I'm a bit disappointed too. This was the perfect chance to translate the game.ReplyDelete
Just came out now.ReplyDelete
kinda pissed cause I already have a japanese psn account with Rockman 1, 2, and 3, and yet, capcom does this...ReplyDelete
I want to support them...should I buy the same game twice?
I wish they would of released Mega Man X4 Before Rock Man Complete Works 1ReplyDelete
This is unbelievable! These games will finally be released here and they're still in Japanese.ReplyDelete
I guess my fan translation still serves a purpose. I have two videos about it on youtube. I'll have another video soon along with a first patch.
