Mega Man 8 Will Complete the Mega Man Series on PlayStation Network this Tuesday
Mega Man 8 will be premiering on the PlayStation Network as a PlayStation One Classic this Tuesday, May 27. First reported on the PlayStation Blogcast, the title was confirmed by a Capcom employee. Mega Man 8 was originally released in Japan on the PlayStation console on December 17, 1996. It was also ported to the Sega Saturn the following year and released in North America in March of 1997.
Mega Man 8 is the final Mega Man game to be released digitally, as Mega Man 1-7 are on Virtual Console, and 9-10 are already available as PlayStation Network. Mega Man 8 has been on the Japan PlayStation Store since late 2014, but this is the first time it will be available for North America since the physical release in 1997. It will be playable on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita according to the Capcom blog post.
