@NCZ I think $10 is a bit pricey for a non-RPG PS1 Classic with little-to-no pre-rendered cutscenes, but good for everyone who wasn't able to find/afford a used copy.

@Scrappy-Fan92 It's a small price to pay for quality.

But also last I heard there are licensing issues that are the reason why the Legends games' rereleases were so delayed, so the price hike is probably to accommodate that.

Hopefully Rival Schools is next.

@NCZ I have little clue as to what kind of licensing issues could possibly tie up a franchise that Capcom owns (perhaps some classical music references late in the game, but I can't think of anything else).

Rival Schools was also affected by the same type of problem.

@NCZ Well that explains a few things, thank you. I do wonder why Capcom bothered to let product placement be in MML if they weren't going to pay again for a rerelease. Also, how is it that Legends and Rival Schools have issues with voice work, but stuff like Mega Man 8 or the Street Fighter Alpha games don't?

@Scrappy-Fan92

One possibility for Rival Schools is that two of the VAs are deceased (Tetsuo Mizutori and Kaneto Shiozawa) so there may have been hurdles to jump through there, whereas everyone from the Street Fighter Alpha series is still alive.

The game is on the Japanese PSN but not anywhere else. Japanese VO generally has to be relicensed for use outside of Japan which is part of why a lot of games don't have dual audio (that and disc space). Wouldn't be surprised if they could work something out in Japan but things got muddier when dealing with other regions.

With MML, I'm not really sure if VO was the problem. In that case I think it was the logo that was the real issue. Other Capcom games recorded in Toronto at the time (e.g. DMC1, the Resident Evils, Street Fighter III, etc.) have been able to be re-released without any problems.

I guess the other thing that's worth noting is that various other Capcom games (e.g. Strider 2, MMX4, MM8) took an unusually long time to show up on PSN as well compared to others, all being released within the past year or so. The holdup there was probably similar. Licensing can get really tricky when there's so many decades of gaming that didn't take the thought of digital re-releases into account.
