Mega Man Legends is coming to PSN!

Mega Man fans rejoice! Mega Man Legends is set to be released next week on PlayStation Network. The title will be available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

For players unfamiliar with Legends, Mega Man Legends was the first 3D spin-off of the Mega Man series.

For the last two years, Capcom has steadily released Mega Man PSOne classics on the PSN. A brief timeline:

Mighty No. 9 [First Impressions]

A couple of years back I had the opportunity to attend GDC (Game Developers Conference) thanks to my time here at Shogun. To this day I hold it to be the epitome of gaming conventions. If you have the opportunity to attend, you simply must.

Keiji Inafune (Dead Rising) Returns To The Zombie Genre With Yaiba [Video + Screens]

Keiji Inafune is a busy man as he’s not only working on three main projects right now, including the awesome PS Vita title Soul Sacrifice, but he has just announced yet another brand new endeavor. Once again going to his roots just as he did recently in J.J. Rockets did, Keiji is returning to the world of zombie action in Yaiba, a new project from his studio Comcept.

Behold Soul Sacrifice, The New Game From Keiji Inafune For The PlayStation Vita

The man who left Capcom and went on to drop some truth bombs is back with a project that could resurrect interest in the PlayStation Vita. I’m of course referring to Keiji Inafune, who since leaving Capcom in 2010 has stayed low while he continued to critique the Japanese development community and doing some small projects via Intercept and Comcept - his new studios.

Keiji Inafune Is Finally Ready To Show His Newest Game

Gamers may know Keiji Inafune the most for some of his brutally honest comments concerning Capcom, but the man is still a game designer and next week we’ll know if he still has the goods. The man behind franchises such as Mega Man and Onimusha will finally be unveiling his new game next week in playable form.  The first major game from his new company Intercept, which is one of two new endeavors, King of Pirates is a 3DS title that somewhat goes back to the old-school days of Keiji Inafune game design.

Notable Japanese Devs Set To Release Original Games For Mobile Platforms

Whether we love it or hate it mobile/social gaming is here to stay and could ultimately become the de facto standard when it comes to how we game.  Games found on the App Store may not beat titles set for the PlayStation 3 or the next iteration of Sony’s console, but mobile gaming is no longer a small niche market that merely consists of Bejeweled and a side-scrolling Tony Hawk game that looks like a four-year old created it.

Keiji Inafune's First Major Post Capcom Project Could Be Out Sooner Than Expected

When Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom last October the video game industry was waiting with baited breathe to see what the famed creator would do next. After spilling the beans on what made him leave Capcom (there’s still a lot of resentment and simmering rage), Keiji revealed that he was not opening just one studio, but two new studios – both of which with different specialties in the entertainment and video game fields.

Former Capcom honcho Keiji Infanue Reveals His New Companies

After having to delay the time of his meeting due to the events that transpired in Japan several weeks ago, former Capcom R&D head Keiji Infanue has revealed what’s next for him in the world of video games.  Since Keiji’s departure from Capcom last October it was unclear if he would continue his career in the video game industry or perhaps call it a day and look towards uncharted territory, much like what former Namco employee Keita Takahashi has done.

Keiji Inafune Has A Big Announcement Set For Next Week

Since he bowed out in October, we haven’t heard too much from Keiji Inafune, the man who was formerly the head of Capcom’s R&D department and is responsible for creating Mega Man and the Onimusha franchise.  We all know what the story was involving Keiji’s departure as he was going in a different direction with his life and Capcom weren’t helping things along as much as he would’ve liked.

At some point even the most talented folks tend to go off the reservation a bit. Sometimes it’s due to their fame, while other times it’s simply due to being burned out or suddenly becoming bitter and extremely jaded.  With Capcom’s Keiji Inafune it’s a bit hard to figure out what went wrong.  Capcom’s head of R&D (he basically approves their core games etc.) used to be an extremely cool dude back in the day. Responsible for creating Mega Man, Inafune was a legend to gamers who continued to deliver the good with games like the Onimusha franchise.
