Die hard fans of the franchise are saddened, for sure. After much back and forth, and even Capcom asking for help deciding what the new look of Mega Man should be, creator Keiji Inafune’s pet project is no more.
Mega Man Legends 3, which was “intended to give gamers across the world insight and input into the development process,” was effectively killed when Capcom found the game — including the “Prototype version” that was being worked on — did not meet certain criteria. Unfortunately, Capcom kept quiet about the specifics so there’s a good chance we’ll never know the exact reasons for the game’s cancellation.
“We can only express our deepest apologies to all of you who have lent us your unending support, including participation in the Mega Man Legends 3 Developer Room. On behalf of the entire Legends team, please accept our sincere apology for failing to meet the expectations of the fans.”
We’re guessing those words fall short of meaning anything to Mega Man fanatics, but life goes on. There’s always the whole “reboot” thing, yeah?
