Capcom's legacy surprise: 20 to 40 PS1 & PSP games coming to PSN

2694075354_55b6ae74e7Just when you thought Capcom couldn't be releasing more games this year, they go and tell Joystiq they're aiming for another 20 to 40 PSOne and PSP games to be released in the next few months. With that large a number, there's bound to be at least one Mega Man game in there.  Here's hoping they show MegaMan Legends some love, as well as Mega Man X and Mega Man 8 on the PSOne side.  I'm rooting for Mega Man Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X on the PSP side (and Monster Hunter Freedom, editor's discretion).

According to a post on Capcom Unity, expect the first batch of PSOne games to arrive in late May.

Batch of PSOne games coming to PSN

In a thread on Capcom Unity, Christian "Sven" Svensson confirmed that a new wave of PSOne (PSX, PS1) games are coming to the PlayStation Network's "PSOne Classics" collection.  While he couldn't confirm which ones are coming, he details that these are only the first and not the last Capcom games that will reach the online store. Spencer on Siliconera compiled a list of PSOne games Capcom published in America and were subsequently rated by the ESRB.  Here's an edited version with any Mega Man references.

Marvel vs. Capcom Mega Man 8 Mega Man Battle and Chase (Ok, this one isn't really a US release) Mega Man Legends Mega Man Legends 2 Mega Man X4 Mega Man X5 Mega Man X6 The Misadventures of Tron Bonne

One can only hope that at least one of those games is part of Capcom's upcoming classics.
