Capcom’s Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version that was supposed to launch alongside Nintendo’s eShop for the Nintendo 3DS has been delayed, report Famitsu. According to Famitsu, the decision was made in order to improve the quality of the product. A new release date has not been announced yet.


As of the writing of this post, Capcom USA have not made an announcement regarding the delay.


The 3DS eShop, which was originally supposed to launch toward the end of May has itself been delayed to launch a few days later on the evening of June 6th (Pacific Time), a day before the company’s E3 media presentation on June 7th.

  • Bummer! Kind of.  I’m all for making a game better quality.  This is where I wish developers wouldn’t announce a release date until they are sure they can release the product at that time.  Most development deadlines are not made public information, so they should hold off on release announcements until the product they want to put out is ready.

    This kind of news just creates sad news.  Then again, this gets all the fans to post about how disappointed they are and scream for the release, hence “hype.”

  •  Well I guess this will be a low key e services launch in the same vein as the one for the WiiWare was…

    Oh well. better quality to judge. i really hope 3 gets released though, the Legends series is the best of them all (gameplay wise anyways)

  • RagnaXBL

    Wow god must really hate me, even dead or alive dimensions was pushed back at my local game store

  • Zonic505

    As long as it’s to improve the game to make it more enjoyable, I’m fine with that. I just hope it’s not a long delay.

  •  This SUCKS!!! This was going to be the first purchase I made for my 3DS.  Guess I’ll just buy Dead or Alive until this comes out.:( Hopefully they are delaying this so they can incorporate a newly designed Megaman into the prologue.

    Has any1 noticed that lately all forms of gaming have been plagued by delays in some form or another? whether its PSN being down or the eshop or megaman or other games, its getting kind of ridiculous now…

    i can’t even buy arcana heart 3 with the psn store down

  • I don’t even care anymore.

  • Apache_Chief

    Better this than rushing it out to release it with the eShop, especially with what’s at stake (AKA the entire game).

  • This just in:

    Megaman Legends 3 is the new Duke Nukem Forever. 

    • Exkaiser

      So, you mean in the Japanese version, the protagonist will be voiced by Gendo Ikari?

      That sounds absolutely amazing.

  • Improving the quality of a demo? Something about this just don’t feel right.

  •  I had been saving up my game coins for a month TT

    When are we going to get a full list of what will be available day 1?  Seems like all we’re hearing is what WON’T be available…

    •  What does game coins have to do with it? Are they used to buy downloadable 3DS softwares?

      • TheAquacharger

        No they are not. eShop points are used. 

  • Kris

     And therefore, my purchase day for a 3DS has been delayed as well :p
    That said, I want this game to be as good as possible, and if Capcom wants to improve it, I’m more than happy to wait :)
