Mega Man 3 Slides To PsOne Imports This Week

By Ishaan . March 7, 2011 . 8:25am

While Ridge Racer Type 4 hits the regular PS One archives on the U.S. PlayStation Network this week, the “Imports” section is getting a different game: Mega Man 3, released on the original PlayStation as part of the Rockman Complete Works collection in Japan.


Before it made its way to the PS One, Mega Man 3 was released as an NES game game in 1990. Mega Man 3 introduced the ability to slide, which later games retained.


It also saw Mega Man’s dog, Rush, playing an important role, by allowing you to unlock different abilities for Rush as you progressed through the game. You’ll be able to grab Mega Man 3 for $5.99 when it goes up on the U.S. PlayStation Store on Tuesday.

  • Worth it. 2, 3 and 9 are definitely my favorites

    Now, if they’d only work on a PSP/3DS port of 9…

    Mega Man 3 is my favorite. Amazing game. I’ve beaten it hundreds of times. Here’s a shameless Youtube plug(atleast watch Snake Man’s stage.)

    Megaman 3 is an excellent game in the series.. I’d probably put MM2 above it as my favourite, but it’s pretty great. It’s the one I remember playing the most when I was young.

    This is part of the ‘complete works collection’… does it also have additional features or content or the like over the original NES version?

    • These are the uncut Japanese PS1 versions. Much of their exclusive bonus content is optional (controller rumble) or unlockable (boss time attack). Beside PS3/PSP lacking Pocketstation support.

        Great! I’m quite interested then.

        Not living in the US, I’ll need to track down some US PSN Cards. And then.. have a fair bit of patience.

        Thanks for your help.

    hmmm why not put the Megaman Anniversary Collection from PS2? that could have save everyone from waiting each game to come.

    And for myself, aoshi00, and anybody else that has PS+, the game will be on sale for $2.99. Just in case anybody on here dropped the dough for PS+.
