Capcom’s Mega Man Legends 3 devroom has details on Barrett, who you’ll get to play as in the game’s Prototype Version later this month, when the Nintendo 3DS eShop launches. As you’ve probably guessed from watching game footage, Barrett’s a pretty mobile character. Here’s screenshots of what you can get up to:
Running around. You can also perform wall runs.
Kicking (the can seems to have made a return…?)
Biking. Barret’s hoverbike can fly, too, even when he’s got Aero riding with him.
Combat. Capcom say combat is faster-paced than the previous Legends games, and Barrett has been balanced for both ranged and close-quarters combat.
There are more screenshots and a couple of videos, too, in the actual devroom post.
Food for thought:
I found this quote in the devroom post amusing: “Barrett–Who is he? Where did he come from? Is this what’s become of Cyber Akuma? Did Data get taller and grow a ponytail?”
