Capcom canceled Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe, but the company says it hopes the Blue Bomber will be back on consoles soon enough.

"I can say with certainty that you've not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we'll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you're going to enjoy over the next 25 years," Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson said in an interview with Nintendo Power.

"That said, an issue we've had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we're certain they're going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I'm going to have to stay mum about any details."

Capcom last released a retro-style Mega Man 9 and 10 on consoles.
