Less than a year ago Mega Man Legends 3 development was cancelled by Capcom. However, that would not be the last we heard of it. A great fan uproar was heard around the world as we all screamed aloud our horror and frustration. Fans have not given up and the demand for MML3 has been thrown down on Capcom’s doorstep. Production of the game was well underway, a prototype was scheduled to be released on the 3DS eshop. It almost seems silly they would cut back on one of their oldest and most adored franchises.

To counter my elation over the upcoming River City Ransom 2, I learned recently that Mega Man Legends 3 for the 3DS, HAS BEEN CANCELLED!!! I thought for certain this game has plenty of fan support. I’ve seen screen shots, concept art, it was even in last months Nintendo Power. This seemed like a sure thing. They can’t just tease the loyal Mega Man fans like this and not deliver. It’s not too often Capcom pulls the plug on something. They have a pretty solid fan base. The guys at the Capcom booth at E3 even had Mega Man patches on their shirts. I guess they’re afraid it won’t have the commercial success of Street Fighter and Resident Evil. After all that battle network garbage on the GBA and DS, they needed a good solid Mega Man game again. The Blue Bomber can’t go out like this. Capcom, I demand satisfaction!
