Megafans have been clamoring for Mega Man Legends 3 for a long time, but that hasn’t stopped Capcom from canceling the game. In a post on the Capcom-Unity blog, the publisher revealed that “different sectors of the company […] felt that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project [did not meet] the required criteria” to go into full production. The downloadable Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version has also been canceled.
While I understand that games get canceled all the time, Capcom’s decision to solicit feedback from fans during the project’s development makes the cancellation feel like a slap in the face.
Finally, Capcom wanted gamers to know that Kenji Inafune’s departure from the company had nothing to do with the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3. I have a feeling few Mega Man fans believe that.
