Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version Has 10+ Missions To Complete

By Spencer . May 9, 2011 . 10:26am

rockdash4Capcom clarified the length of Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version a bit by noting the Nintendo 3DS download has 10+ missions. Instead of Mega Man, you play the game as Barrett and Aero, a new heroine selected by fans.


While the game is loading, players will see screens with concept art like the images below.

After Barrett completes the main missions and (presumably rides into the sunset with Aero), players will unlock a debug menu. This will allow fans to explore Mega Man Legends 3 beyond the scope of the missions and play with special move settings.


Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version will launch with the Nintendo 3DS eShop at the end of this month.

  • I can’t not notice the $68 price tag for Megaman Legends 2… wow. Anyway I liked the games back then, but it’s about time they improved the camera controls. Let’s wait and see.

    • Exkaiser

      $25 for the first game’s a pretty good price, though.

    • At least it’s a bargain, in contrast to the obvious beta, KOFXII. *coughNOMAINOBUYcough*

      Heck, I hope they’d offer discounts on the final version, as for the ones who bought the US$25 prototype.

    • godmars

      I still have my copies. Of both.


  • Shuryou

    When did it become Barrett Legends?

    • Megaman will be the main character in the full game. They haven’t even finalized his design yet, but as long as they actually have a character model, they can make the design and alter Megaman’s textures and stuff later.

    • Im still hoping this will be more like a prologue.

      • Exkaiser

        It is a prologue.

        • Then i was right, weeeeee

          • Tommy Lee

            I think Exkaiser told you that plenty of times already…

          • All i remember (or i have read) is he saying he was on the moon, wich i already knew o_o. Maybe unexpected events happened in the other replies he made to me when i was reading them, wich all led to this moment of confusion AND DISTORTION IN THE SPACE

    • Because Megaman is trapped in Elysium maybe ? ;)

  • godmars

    That’s a lot for $2.

    Still, getting fans involved then hanging the possibility of a MML3 seeing release based on this gets generally received was backwards thinking.

  • Natat

    I didn’t vote for THAT Aero… the one I voted for looked much better >_>

    • It’s because the attitude they will use doesn’t fit to the original design, the first looks like she could be a shy type one, but I agree with you, the first one looked much better..

  • Draparde

    I think that you should be able to switch between Barrett or Mega man, (assuming you get him off the moon eventually) personally i like barrett better x.x

  • I personally would love to play as Barrett~
    I’m sort of behind on news so, I’m wondering, will the prototype version be on the US 3DS eShop as well at the same time or just the Japanese one?

    • Exkaiser

      From all accounts, it will be on the eShop as soon as it launches in both regions.

      • Just what I wanted to hear! Thank you.
