Comcept Teases New Project That Just Happens To Use The Word ‘Legends’ A Lot

Comcept and animation house Studio 4C are planning to make an announcement for something called “Red Ash” at Anime Expo this weekend. The studio headed by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune was careful to pepper the tease with the word “legends,” which might be a hint.

Comcept is getting set to release Mighty No. 9, which is a not-so-subtle riff on the Mega Man series. The visuals featured in the video below (along with the word “legend” appearing multiple times) give some glimmer of hope that Mega Man Legends might be getting a similar treatment.

It’s worth noting that the Japanese name for Mega Man Legends is Rockman Dash. Red Ash shuffled just a bit gets us to “Re-Dash.” It’s still too early to get your hopes up, but if you lament the cancelation of Mega Man Legends 3, this might be one to keep your eye on.

While there’s nothing concrete to point to yet, you won’t have to wait long for details. The reveal is set for Saturday, July 4 at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. For more from Inafune, you can read our E3 interview, during which we discuss Mega Man Legends 3.

 

Our Take
It wouldn’t be at all surprising for Comcept to return to the crowdfunding well for another title (especially with the "Studio 4C's challenge" bit at the end. I’m curious about the Studio 4C connection and the presence at Anime Con. This might be a trans-media project and not just a simple game announcement.
