Capcom Cancels Mega Man Legends 3

by on July 19, 2011
 

It was recently announced by Capcom that Mega Man Legends 3 for the 3DS is no more. (Well……for now at least.) The game was supposedly in development until recently. Capcom explained that they felt the game didn’t fit the requirements to go into the next stage of development.

Described in the FAQ posted on the Capcom Unity blog, were details on the company’s decision to cancel the game and reassure hopes for those who are looking foward to a new Mega Man game in the future.

 I was never a big fan of Mega Man Legends but I played both games, remember enjoying them and looked forward to playing the Third one just for the hell of it. Right now, I’m having the same feelings I had when I learned that Earthbound 64 was cancelled.  Why is that?

    I’m thinking that capcom is rethinking about what they want to do franchise and maybe trying to hit the bigger consoles instead of just putting it on the 3DS. They also know that the sales of 3DS is starting to drop so…..It would makes sense to pull back now and concentrate on bringing the game to X360 or PS3 but not as a downloadable game.

      You know, I hope that’s the case. I won’t lie, when I first heard this was supposed to come out for the 3DS, I got really bummed out. I love playing games on giant deathtrap consoles hooked up to my old ass TV.

    I’m losing faith in Capcom, they have cancelled two Mega Man games this year. I really hope they don’t move all their attention towards Dead Rising and Street Fighter. I would be one sad guy 🙁

      I’m sure that one day we’ll get a mega man legends game.

      @Yuri – Yeah I think the majority of the people who enjoyed the franchised were bummed up out. Not a great way to put out a threequel.
