One of the rarest Mega Man games ever released for the PS1, The Misadventures of Tron Bonne is now available for select Sony consoles.
Mega Man Legends may currently be synonymous with broken hearts and a failed Capcom project, but over a decade ago, the Legends saga marked the first 3D adventure in the Mega Man franchise. Several centuries after the events of the 2D games, Legends follows the adventures of a team of “Diggers”, consisting of Mega Man Volnutt and his adoptive-family, the Caskets; the Caskets are at odds with the antagonistic Bonne family, led by Tron Bonne and her army of indestructible Servbots. While the first title in the series was re-released as Mega Man 64, Mega Man Legends 2 remains as a PS1-exclusive. Mega Man Legends 3 was revealed to be in development for the 3DS shortly after Mega Man-creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom, however the project was cancelled just months after its announcement.
Many characters from the Mega Man Legends saga made their way into other titles, such as Tatsunoku VS Capcom, Project X Zone and Marvel VS Capcom 3, but only one official spin-off game was ever published- The Misadventures of Tron Bonne for the PS1. Players take hold of Tron Bonne, whose family has been captured by Mr. Loath. In order to reclaim the Bonnes, Tron must use her Servbot army to rob banks, and pay-off the family’s 1 million zenny debt.
Earlier today, The Misadventures of Tron Bonne appeared on the PSN store, and is now available for purchase. This “PSOne Classic” title is presented in its original 4:3 aspect ratio with unaltered visuals. The game is listed for $5.99, and is a Cross-Buy title for the PS3, PSP and PS Vita.
