Maverick Hunter X on PSN Today

Just a quick heads up that Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X (PSP) will be available for download on the PSN store today along with Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower. Here's Capcom's official blurb for MHX:

Back by popular demand! 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. The revolutionary Mega Man® X side-scrolling game is recreated with 3-D graphics, remixed music and special unlockable features!

Maverick Hunter X is very solid remake. If you missed it the first time, now is your chance to finally pick the title up.

Joystiq Confirms UMD Legacy Titles With Chris Kramer

With the release of the PSP Go, we're seeing a huge influx of UMD Legacy games on the PSN store. Capcom had been planning the big PSP/PS1 push on PSN for quite some time now and it looks like those plans are finally coming to fruition. A blog entry detailing the release schedule for several PSP titles was posted on Capcom Unity before being pulled down shortly after. Joystiq has confirmed with Chris Kramer that "titles are correct and the dates should be fairly accurate" though he adds that it's "hard to pin down digital release dates almost until they happen."

Here's the release schedule that was taken down:

  • October 8: Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Dark Tower
  • October 15: Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max
  • October 22: Capcom Puzzle World
  • October 29: Maverick Hunter X
  • November 5: Megaman Powered Up

Though there are no prices currently listed, Capcom's current selection of UMD Legacy titles run at $19.99 a pop.
