Hot on the heels of Mega Man 9 & 10 being given away free for PlayStation Plus members (ok, a month later), it has now been revealed that Mega Man Maverick Hunter X will be the next free digital offering. It will be available tomorrow, February 19th. The game is currently compatible with the PSP, PSP Go, and PS Vita. As a reminder, PlayStation Plus free games and discounts must be claimed within a specific span of time. However, any free games received through the program will continue to work as long as you have a working PS Plus subscription, which can be renewed at any time even after your initial subscription expires.
Here's the usual PR:
An enhanced remake of the classic Mega Man X, complete with 3D character models, remixed music, and all new unlockable features, this is classic Mega Man turned up to 11. When Sigma leads a group of Reploids in a revolt against mankind, it’s up to X and Zero to protect the world from ruin. You can download this title free as a PS Plus member and play it on your PS Vita, or PSP.

SCEA has unveiled their PlayStation Plus subscription service's update plans for this week, which includes a free download of the Mega Man 9 and 10 combo pack for PS3. This pack contains the basic games only, with their DLC available for separate purchase or in DLC packs. The North American PlayStation Store updates on Tuesdays, which would mean this deal will go into effect at some time tomorrow. The games will be free for at least one month, as is usual with PlayStation Plus free games.
Here is the press info:
Mega Man 9 and 10 were new and bold steps for a series that’s as beloved as Mega Man. Many gamers grew up on classic Mega Man games and yearned for a new 2D adventure but with the rock solid mechanics of the originals. Capcom delivered by going back to its 8-bit roots to deliver a classic Mega Man experience with all-new levels, weapons and bosses. IGN calls Mega Man 9 alone a “… mastery of 2D platforming.” Check out both Mega Man 9 and 10 for yourself; free for PS Plus members.
