Sony’s PSone companion device, the PocketStation lives on in a free PS Vita app. It’s now free for all in Japan as of today.

It follows our report on the PocketStation app’s features and initial supported titles. See the list through the link.

Siliconera reports that he app was only free to PS Plus users in Japan, but has now gone gratis for everyone.

The site adds that while the app is free, you’ll need the accompanying PSone titles to use its features. For example, if you have Final Fantasy 7 on your Vita, you can play the PocketStation RPG Chocobo World and level up feathered pal Boku.

Hot Shots Golf 2, Legend of Dragoon and all of the Mega Man ports also use the device at present, with more likely to follow.
