Though Mega Man Legends 3 was recently canceled, Capcom says the Mega Man brand is still very important to them and the old Blue Bomber is anything but DOA.
In a video Q&A via their community blog, Capcom’s Christian Svensson (transcribed by Siliconera), Svensson replies to the question, “Is Mega Man dead?” by saying,
“Oh, absolutely not. The frustrating thing for me is I have nothing I can hold up and say, ‘Oh, here’s this other Mega Man thing’. Absolutely, we have other things… Mega Man is a very important brand to Capcom. We get questions [like] ‘Are you guys trying to kill the brand?’
“No, absolutely not. It will continue to be a very important brand for us. I wish I had something I could hold and display for you that that’s the case, but I don’t right now. But super, super important to us; I do want to express that.”
So there you have it. Mega Man is alive and kicking but just has nothing to do at the moment.
