Games about Mega Man are quite rare these days, with multiple titles from Capcom having been canceled, including the once highly anticipated “Mega Man Legends 3” that was scheduled for release on the Nintendo 3DS. But it appears that the company still has a soft spot for the “Blue Bomber” and his friends, as Capcom has re-released “The Misadventures of Tron Bonne” in the PSN Store.
A recent announcement on the Capcom Unity Blog confirmed that the title would be part of the PS One Classics in the PSN Store. “Tron Bonne” was considered a sleeper hit among many gamers who owned an original Sony PlayStation console, and now owners of a PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable or PlayStation Vita can check the game out for themselves.
“Tron Bonne” is a prequel to the critically acclaimed “Mega Man Legends” games, which feature gameplay that is radically different from the original side-scrolling “Mega Man” games. The character of Tron makes appearances in both games, usually as a boss character, though it’s also clear that she has a crush on the game’s lead after Mega Man saves her from a dog.
Fans of the series learned the backstory of Tron in “The Misadventures of Tron Bonne,” where they found out that she comes from a family of thieves and tomb raiders. Gameplay featured Tron and her adorable Servbots using a giant mech to rob banks and raid tombs in order to pay a huge debt.
There were also a variety of mini-games found in “The Misadventures of Tron Bonne,” usually involving the Servbots and leveling them up. These mini-games helped make the Servbots stronger so they could be more competent during missions as well as build up their endurance so they can take more hits.
Interestingly enough, Game Informer reported that neither of the two “Mega Man Legends” games has hit the PSN Store yet. Since “The Misadventures of Tron Bonne” is a prequel to the “Mega Man Legends” games, it’s possible that the other two games will see the light of day soon enough.
“The Misadventures of Tron Bonne” is available now for digital download for the PS3, PS Vita and PSP. The game sells for $5.99, a far cry from original copies of the game, which sell for about $200 on eBay.
