The lights are on
In a bit of sad news for fans of the Mega Man Legends games and 3DS owners in general, Capcom has canceled Mega Man Legends 3.
Announced via a blog post on Capcom-Unity, the publisher says the cancellation is due to the game failing to meet "required criteria" that would decide whether it went into full production. As such, Capcom says it has no plans to develop Legends 3 nor to release the prototype version of the game that was being worked on. The prototype was originally set to be distributed onto 3DS units via Nintendo's eShop in the near future.
Between this news and the cancellation of Mega Man Universe a few months ago, I have to wonder what plans if any Capcom currently has for this struggling franchise. While we wait for a new game starring the blue bomber, why not console yourself by watching our Super Replay of the original Mega Man Legends.
That sucks, way to go capcom.
Are you kidding me. Nooooo! I was really looking forward to this game. I love the Mega Man Legends series and this is a huge blow to me and the 3DS in general.
this mostly sucks for whoever won the create the new character contest thing they had a while ago, now we'll never see Megaman Legends 3 or the new contest winning character
I'm very disappointed in this cancellation! This was my most anticipated 3DS game. Now what?
