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.
