Last we heard from Capcom USA on the Mega Man Legends 3 Project, they revealed that the focus of the game will be a collaboration between fans and Capcom’s development team in Japan, who will be taking fan feedback into account to help shape the design of the final Mega Man Legends chapter.
This emphasis on making fans a part of the development process is the reason Mega Man Legends 3 has “Project” in its logo. Global Head of Production at Capcom and creator of Mega Man, Keiji Inafune, shed more light on this at a panel at the New York Comic-Con this past weekend. Read on for a quick summary of the talk or watch the panel video above.
The Mega Man Legends series, Inafune reveals, has not been amongst Capcom’s most financially successful. Regardless, the amount of fan enthusiasm for another Legends game led Inafune to greenlight the project. By making the series’s devoted fans a part of the development process, Capcom hope to make Legends 3 a success.
The first step of this process involves voting for the game’s heroine. As they get further into development, however, Capcom will be asking fans for advice on bosses and boss battles. Inafune even mentions the possibility of fans providing voicework for the game or suggesting professional voice-actors that they think would be well-suited to the title.
