Mega Man Legends 3 Canceled, Prototype Version Also Canned

Last year at Comic-Con, Keiji Inafune teased plans for Mega Man Legends 3  were in the works during the World of Capcom panel. The announcement ballooned into a digital developers room where fans voted on the heroine and submitted designs for the Nintendo 3DS game. In February, Mazakazu Eguchi director, noted the game has not been greenlit, a topic we discussed with Capcom’s Strategic Marketing Director of Online and Community Seth Killian.

Just days before Comic-Con 2011, Capcom announced Mega Man Legends 3 has been canceled. Development on the game has ceased and Capcom won’t release the title or even the downloadable Prototype version. Mega Man Legends 3 did not meet unspecified criteria and for that reason Capcom decided to cancel the game. The publisher says the decision is not related to the departure of Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.

 

"We can only express our deepest apologies to all of you who have lent us your unending support, including participation in the Mega Man Legends 3 Developer Room. On behalf of the entire Legends team, please accept our sincere apology for failing to meet the expectations of the fans," a Capcom employee wrote.
