Mega Man 3 Slides To PsOne Imports This Week


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.
