Mega Man Legends 3 Cancelled

Capcom has been a truly surprising company as of late with some of its most popular franchises. They announced in a live stream that no plans were made to localize Ace Attorney Investigations 2, they cancelled Mega Man Universe, an ambitious online Mega Man title, and now they've cancelled the long awaited third installment in the Mega Man Legends saga. Earlier, Capcom announced that a prototype would be coming out for the 3DS and they called upon ideas from fans to help push the series to its release. It seems we've come up short this time.

This news saddens me so greatly because I love the Legends series; it was a clever, new direction for the Mega Man games. Legends had much in common with Sonic Adventure in that both opened up the worlds of their respective main characters. Mega Man took off his helmet and was able to roam cities, dig in dungeons, and meet a colorful cast of characters, adding an entirely new dimension to the traditionally flat side-scrolling platformer.

I am going to be sad to see the spikey haired Blue Bomber go back in storage for some time. I suppose the next time a game is teased from Capcom, fans should start posting about it daily and sending them letters professing their love, else the game might be ripped from release. These days, Capcom seems like an insecure significant other--eager for your attention, but more eager to show you what happens when they do not receive that attention.
