Mega Man X5 Arrives on North American PSN Store

Hot off the heels of Mega Man X4, Mega Man X5 is now available to download from the PlayStation Store. The fifth entry in the X series will run $5.99, currently compatible with PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

I wish more could be said about future Mega Man PSN releases, but this is all we'll be receiving for the time being. Capcom USA's Brett Elston did allude to future plans, though Mega Man X6's fate remains uncertain. A post on Capcom Unity implies some legal hurdles to overcome. Specifically, the game's two Japanese songs, "Moon Light" and "The Answer" by Showtaro Morikubo.

We'll keep an ear to the ground, of course. Stay tuned.


  1. I'm glad to see them both. Maybe this means we'll see 8, X6 and the Legends games soon, too.

  2. I really want to see the japanese versoin of X4 in any store, I really wanted to play that version on my PS3/PSvita

    1. Wait X4 is not being released in Japanese stores at all in its native version??? Hmm.. well this is news to me. I really should follow this stuff more carefully.

      And damn... : (

      Like if I had to rate X4 out of 10 with 10 being the highest, I'd give the Japanese version a 9.2 and the Western version 6.0 just cause of the voice acting. I believe it hurts it that much.

  3. It's unfortunate that X6 may not come to PSN... Though, given the bugs, localization errors, and a few more minor things it makes sense.

    Zero with guard shell. Oh yes...

    I wish we could get a PSN version of the legends games............... I wish.

  4. Hey protodude, dunno if you know, but Smash 4 for 3DS has a demo out in Japan, that the rest of the world should be getting around friday. And Megaman is one of the 5 characters usable in the demo. May want to write a post up about it.
