Mega Man Legends 3 Canceled

Mega Man Legends 3, a game that I have been dreaming for almost a decade now. That dream is oficially dead. Very sad news for Mega Man fans and 3DS owners ar, Capcom has canceled Mega Man Legends 3.

From [Gameinformer]

Announced via a blog post on Capcom-Unity, the publisher says the cancellation is due to the game failing to meet “required criteria” that would decide whether it went into full production. As such, Capcom says it has no plans to develop Legends 3 nor to release the prototype version of the game that was being worked on. The prototype was originally set to be distributed onto 3DS units via Nintendo’s eShop in the near future.

Well, there goes any chance of me getting a 3DS now. Ocarina of Time 3D looks kickass but my driving force for even planning to get the glasses-free 3D handheld was Legends 3. Sad sad day.

Capcom can make it up to me though by releasing Mega Man Legends 1 and 2 on PSN but apparently they can’t do that either due to licensing issues.

        Yeah, funny (or unfunny) that Mega Man games have been cancelled. The only Mega Man that has a better shot of coming out is in Super MVC3.

    I have an inkling that the EXTREMELY unfavourable reviews of Duke Nukem Forever might lean reviewers to once again saying “It wasn’t worth the wait.” Besides that, Inafune has always been open to “fan-games” of the Mega Man franchise, he even left a lot of loose ends so that the fans can interpret them in their own ways.

    Nothing to do with how good or bad the 3DS is selling. It’s just Capcom’s crap, that’s all.
