This Is What Mega Man Legends 3 Looked Like In December

It’s time for another Mega Man Legends 3 update in screenshot form. Capcom have been made a fair bit of progress on the various areas in the game since they last teased what Legends 3 looks like. Let’s take a look at some screenshots toward the end of last year.


Back in October 2010, tests were run to see how large the development team could make Teolmo City, which is where Legends 3 takes place. In order to quickly build a makeshift city to test hardware limitations, they pasted the same area over and over, and came up with this:

Around December, Capcom also began making progress on the dungeons in the game. Here’s one with a Reaverbot:

      Aw, come on, there’s no way the good ol’ Sharukurusu is the cheesiest-looking robot in Megaman. I mean, this is the series that has things like the big cat robot that shoots yarn balls out of its mouth and has robotic fleas that jump at you.

  • Pleeeeeeaaaase bring this over here!

  • Oooh, the reaverbot that tackles you~!
    Ah, memories…. :3

    • Exkaiser
