Capcom Crushes Any Hope For Mega Man Legends 3

Recently Capcom decided to hurt a portion of it’s fans by cancelling Mega Man Legends 3 for the Nintendo 3DS. Within the past month, loyal fans have been pushing and pushing to get the word out that they care about the game, such as, creation of the 100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3 group on the social networking site FaceBook.

The gaming site Kotaku has had an interview with Brian Keltner, Capcom’s Spokesman.

“We are aware of the fan created Facebook page requesting that we resume development of Mega Man Legends 3,”

“While Capcom has a built a strong relationship with its community and values their feedback, Mega Man Legends 3 development has officially ceased without plans to resume development.”

That’s really harsh words just to out and say to it’s fans. 

“There are tough realities in this industry that are largely left unpublicized for a good reason—because they’re tough,” Capcom community liaison Greg Moore wrote. “All games go through a multi-stage approval process, but most games are not brought to the public’s attention until that final approval has been met. With Mega Man Legends 3, exposing the fans to that process was part of the project’s core concept—to show everybody what it really means to create a game. We were all in it together here, for better or worse, and now together we must accept the outcome that many games ultimately face.”

  1. I’m not sure how I feel about this article. I realize this is a blow, but I’m seeing a lot of bias against Capcom and demonization of them.

    While it is sad to see this game go, I feel like people just need to move on.

  2. It’s not really surprising. Capcom’s made their stance quite clear.

    I dunno. I’m feeling pretty neutral at this point. I want a Legends 3 just like the rest of the fans, and I feel Capcom is being stupid, but I’m just worn out, I guess.

  3. there’s obviously an audience, but ultimately its up to the company to decide whether or not a game gets released. I’m ok with this decision now, and besides, they could have made MML3 terrible.

  4. I hope the MML fans shut up now, they quickly became some of my least favourite people after MML3 was canceled.

    Although this is a very harsh generalization, the ones on this forum are cool.

    1. I’m kinda over MML3, I was annoyed at what Capcom had done but I needed time ot play the original games anyway.

      Ace Attorney Investigations 2 on the other hand…
