It’s time for Episode 16 of the Warp Zoned Podcast! Nicole Kline, Mike Gutierrez, Chris Urie, and Ryan Littlefield are back in an effort to spill the beans on the latest news and games they’ve been enjoying as of late. This week, they’re talking about Mega Man Legends 3, and the fan-supported “Get Me Off The Moon” campaign which aims to revive the game’s development. We also touch on our most hated video game characters, including the characters we LOVE to hate… Ashley from Resident Evil 4, anyone? If you want to share your thoughts on the recent outcries for localizations and game development or if you just want to mention the video game character YOU hate the most, drop us a line at mailbag [at] warpzoned [dot] com, or Twitter-mention us at @WarpZoned.
And be sure to check back next week for Episode 17!
Capcom has had a string of bad news last week, none more disappointing than the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 for the Nintendo 3DS. Die-hard fans have responded in a number of ways, but none as classy or hopeful as the group “100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3.” Hoping to take the high ground in this mess, the group states, “we want them [Capcom] to see the error of their ways, not go out of business.” You can keep up to date with the group through their official site, Facebook page, or by following them on Twitter.
Their cause is a noble endeavor and we at Warp Zoned wish them the best of luck. If you have a second be sure to like their Facebook, it’s the least you could do for dedicated fans of a much-missed franchise.
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.
One of the cool aspects of Mega Man Legends 3 is the fact that Capcom is letting fans help design the game. If you haven’t gotten a chance to meet Aero, the new heroine chosen by those fans, take a look at her at the Capcom Unity blog.
As for Mega Man’s suit design, Capcom is offering up two choices. You can choose which one you think is cooler at the Mega Man Legends 3 Devroom.
Unfortunately, Capcom is delaying the release of Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version, the paid demo of the game that was set to premiere in June alongside the opening of the 3DS eShop. A new release date hasn’t been announced yet but Capcom is asking gamers to “Please wait just a little longer!“
Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version has a trailer
When Nintendo’s eShop for the 3DS launches next month, you’ll be able to get your hands on Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version, a paid demo for the full game, similar to what we’ve seen with Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy: Prologus on PSN in March. The game looks to let you play as Barrett, one of the new characters, flying throughout the city and taking on those Bonnes.
Ah, CES. We love you because you always bring us new information. Capcom has joined the legion of companies making major announcements about some of their most anticipated titles of 2011 – Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Mega Man Legends 3 Project, MotoGP 10/11, and my personal favorite: Okamiden.
Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 is coming to the North American PSN on February 1st for 14.99 and the XBLA on the 2nd for 1200 MS points. We also got some box art as well as some screen shots, which can all be found here.
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective will be released in North America for the DS on January 11th. Players take on the role of Sissel’s ghost to try to solve his murder. You can solve puzzles by possessing and manipulating items in the real world from the spirit world. Did I mention Sissel has amnesia? Part detective story, part soap opera.
Mega Man Legends 3 Project’s new female heroine, Aero, was created in the Dev Room by fans, who can contribute to multiple aspects of the game through its development. To get involved in this unique project and to read the latest news, click here.
MotoGP 10/11 has just introduced a new customizable player assist feature. This allows both simulation and arcade racing fans to play the game in the style they’re used to. Also announced was a new splitscreen co-op gameplay. Fans of the genre should be sure to check it out this coming March, when it releases for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. More details can be found here.
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: information about Okamiden! Capcom announced a brand new Wind mini-game in which Chibiterasu can team up with a friend named Kurow. Together they will use the Galestorm brush technique to get to Thundercloud, where they can later learn another brush technique called Thunderstorm. Chibiterasu will need all the help he can get to bring color back into the world. March 15th is when Okamiden lands for the DS, so get your painting hand ready. More information on this story can be found here, and you can become a fan of Okami on Facebook here.
