Capcom Scraps Mega Man Legends 3
Yep, in a move that’s sure to upset fans of the Blue Bomber, Capcom announced (very casually) on their blog that the title didn’t meet their quality standards, and rather than rework the title, they have chosen to cancel it outright.
Despite my misgivings about the series, its really sad to see this title go. First off, because with the cancellation of Mega Man Universe which, despite the character model looking kind of like a floppy dead fetus when he jumped around, I was really looking forward to, there are no Mega Man titles at all on Capcom’s slate. Secondly, the title was being worked with very closely with fan input from message boards, clubs, and fansites all bleeding into the MML development room, and had grown very important to the Legends community.
With this project down, and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune having departed the company, it leaves Mega Man in a limbo with Capcom. They insist that our robotic hero will return, but, in what form?
