‘Mega Man Legends 3’ 8-bit remake on the way

With the help of the ‘Mega Man’ fan community and Capcom's Hideki Ishikawa and Makoto Tomozawa, the long desired and disappointingly canceled “Mega Man Legends 3” will be remade for the Nintendo 3DS. (3DS, Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version)

Just dont cancel it and we are fine. Capcom mostly showed stuff they canceled this gen. They published remember me and canceled megaman. Talk bout stupidity.

I'm confused. If this is a fan game, how is it on 3DS?

Some good business practices, for once. Fan-made games have had a tough time out there on the open Web, with IP hawks chasing them down, putting out cease-and-desists, crappy stuff. Think Danger Mouse's Grey Album (look it up). This is an alternative move, where a company actually shows interest in the project and wants to help and profit from it instead of sequestering the thing in court.

Capcom has started to ally itself with its Megaman fanbase, because they've been making better Megaman games than Capcom has (in that Capcom has made absolutely nothing). I'm sure this was in the works, and Capcom jumped on board and helped out.

The rage from this is obviously the following: Capcom scrapped its own real MML project, which was continuing the 3D idea. The fans then try to make something smaller and 2D out of it, and Capcom co-opts the game, putting it on the system MML3 was supposed to be on, meaning that the original Megaman Legends 3 is now officially forever dead. Forever. And that sucks.

A lot of people seem displeased with this...

Keh, so much support for Megaman Legends and all we get is a freaking 8-bit knockoff of a 3D game.

Bah! I am surprised people aren't more insulted by this.

Of course, I was one of the few people who though the MM9 was a cop-out. Which, don't get me wrong, was a good game but could have been made by any home developer with the license.

Rather have any game than nothing.

so we have a remake of a game that was never even made.
how the hell does that work?

also this doesn't look too interesting
making megaman legends to 2D just defeats the point of it being megaman legends game at all
it's just beating a dead horse here

and on a sidenote i'm sick of "retro" graphics
games don't benefit from them
it just means you didn't bother with the graphics too much
