Yoshinori Kawano, who directed Mega Man Legends and was the main director on Legends 2 will be overseeing the overall Legends 3 project. Simply put, his job is to help make sure the game turns out great. Eguchi views him as a “spiritual mentor.”

 

Additionally, the Legends 3 team also enslists the aid of art directors, planners, designers from the first two Legends titles as well as support from their students, the members of the EXE and Star Force teams. Finally, there are also project leads and key staff from the Monster Hunter, Lost Planet, and Basara games helping out on Legends 3.
