Land Battles, Hoverbikes And A Boss In Mega Man Legends 3 Footage

By Ishaan . April 21, 2011 . 5:29pm


Today is Mega Man Legends 3 news day. Earlier in the day, Capcom released screenshots of the game, along with an announcement of Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version, which will be a preview version of the game launching with the 3DS eShop in May.


Now, we have some lengthy (albeit low-res) in-game footage of the Prototype Version, thanks to a NicoNico stream that was recorded and eventually made its way to YouTube. Part 1 (above) gives you a good look at Barrett, while part 2 (below) has him hop on to a hoverbike with Aero. Part 3 is a boss fight.

  • I totaly dig the gameplay, but…
    Where the hell is MegaMan?? D:<

    • Draparde

      on the moon D:

    • Exkaiser

      He’s on the moon. The prototype version has you play as Barrett while Roll and Tron build the rocket to get him back.

      • Well, I guess it fits
        It would pretty much be a slap to the face if MegaMan were to return off-screen

        • Exkaiser

          Yeah, they’re making a pretty big deal of having us remember that the dude has been stuck there for eleven years. S’ why the progress bar on the Devroom is the progress of the rocket that Roll and Tron are building.

      • I wonder what megaman has been doing there….

        • Exkaiser

          Many, many games of tic-tac-toe with Sera.

        • Trying to convince it not to crash into Termina. Two years from now, that’ll be Nintendo’s reason for the lack of Majora’s Mask on 3DS. “Capcom ruined it all!”

  • Wait, what? Who is that red haired guy?! WHERE IS MEGAMAN?! DID I MISS SOMETHING?!

    Looks cool though

    • Apparently they replaced him with Legend’s equivalent to Protoman D:

    • Apparently, at least a portion of the game is really about building the rocket needed to get him back.

      • I hope is only for a portion T_T i want my megaman, i mean, MEGAMAN legend 3… MEGAMAN… BLUE *remembers when phoenix wright was changed for Apollo*


  • Draparde

    Hopefully you can switch back and forth between megaman. i enjoy this guy.

  • Exkaiser

    Looking great! Barrett looks like a lot of fun to play as, he definitely has a different flavor than the Blue Bomber.

    The boss in the third video is the winner of the Bonne mech design contest- it looks great in action. I wonder if the winner of the Reaverbot contest will also be in the prototype version…

  • LeonAlabard

    The gameplay looks really nice. I wonder if Megaman will be able to do melee attacks like this guy (Homing Falcon Kick FTW), or if he will get his own new attacks.

    And I will be very disappointed if Megaman don’t get a cool hoverbike to go around with Roll and run over random people.

    • Exkaiser

      Pff, he doesn’t need a cool hoverbike. He’s got awesome jet skates.

    • Zal_Yagun

      Looks like the melee is the secondary weapon

  • Exkaiser

    EDIT: Whoops, accidentally double-posted. My other post didn’t show up for some reason, but it’s there now.

  • Zal_Yagun

    Makes me wish those ports of MML on the psp came over

  • Kris

    Looks great! I’m finding it hard to resist the allure of the 3DS…

  • OMG!!
    You can run over pedestrians!! Now we can take vengeance in those Hit & Runners!!
    License holders beware…cause this Blue Boy’s got some wheels >:) …figuratively speaking.

  • PrinceHeir

    2nd video on the right, is that Kayo Police?

    the game looks interesting, never played the series. im more of Megaman and X fan, but i might check this out :D

  • xflame10

    mission 2?! It’s like grand theft auto! WEEK 1 BUY WOOT!

  • Happy Gamer

    im surprised at how similar this game looks and feel to the original. Looking great!

  • Guest

    How bout a Megaman, Tetsuwon Atom, Space Ace, and Casshern crossover

  • I am confuse! is that megaman theyre controlling or no?

  • I was confused as to why they would use Barret, but if you’ve played ’till the end of Legends 2, depending on the amount of time passed canonically, it makes sense.
