Are they fucking serious? People have wanted MML3 for over a decade now!
I think the audience definitely exists. It's arguable if the audience actually owns the hardware on which it was being developed.
if there was no audience for it then why bother announcing it and hyping it up for months
To be considered in "audience", it needs to be much more than a couple thousand people on the Internet. @abash- Exactly.
I think this all has to do with poor 3DS sales scaring them out of doing Mega Man Legends 3. If 3DSs were flying off the shelves, you can bet that they would still be making the game
I was planning on buying a 3DS if this game got good reviews.
I can't believe they're cancelling this. I've wanted a new MML since I completed the second one over ten years ago! This would've been the only game, aside from pokemon and zelda, that would've sold me on a 3DS.
i think this game will have a better audience on PS VITA.
Well if its about 3DS sales then make it multiplat make it available on the Vita to widen your audience. I doubt the cost of making the game for the handhelds will be that expensive. I bet the cancellation is more of Inafune leaving than anything else. They want to get away from anything he left behind and will probably remake this franchise in the future. They did it with Mikami's RE and DMC already.
"People have wanted MML3 for over a decade now!" Yes..but how many people? Would you say over a million? I've been waiting for Shenmue 3 for years...but that doesn't mean I'm clueless to the fact that the audience for it is a small one.
Well seeing that the game had a fricken community dev room I think we can at least say that this guy saying, "If the fans would have been more involved...." needs to be put into the the idiot column.
Maybe cuz it was only on 3ds had it come to ps3 im sure alot of more people would be over it.
if that was the case they would have made it for the ps2/ds/wii where there is/was an even larger audience
I think they are making it for the psvita, we will see at the end
there are lots of PS2 but people are not gonna buy games for it. On the Wii if is not Mario or Zelda then it's a flop. The DS is not only a dying console but it lacks the power for a proper 3D game. A release for PSN/XBL would sell much more tha those 3 consoles combined.
@chaos what are you talkigg about? they were too cheap to make this on the 3DS or any other console before this why would they increase costs to make it on the VITA? as for you jelly im not talking about just right now they have had 11 years to make legends 3 and countless consoles to make it on some with massive instal bases like the ps2/wii/ds all of which are and were capable of making a game like legends
your wrong if it was on ps3 it would have failed cus ps3 gamers so not play megaman they play cod god and uncharted they all have the same games so ur wrong id say the game should of been made for the 3ds like planed since ds in gen has a huge mega man base with all the mega man games that game out on the ds ppl would have flocked to it since a large portion of mega man fans are on nintendo wut u r sayiing is like saying ps2 gamers went to ps2 which less then 20% jumped on the ps3 wagon
I m sorry man but I couldn't understand one word you said. Try re posting it again... in plain English.
You have my support.
Same. Now if only this was a console title then GTFO Capcom!
Crapcom have clueless all generation, this just hits the nail on the head even more.
Capcom is so clueless that they actually think that the DMC reboot is gonna sell more than DMC4 just because is was being made by a western dev. Capcom is ruining all their franchises one by one...
aka, there wasn't any money to be made
Weird. The fact that I own all NES games, the GC Megaman Collection, the GBA releases, the DS re-release of the Megaman Zero games, the Megaman ZX games AND all Megaman X games means I'm not their target audience.
No audience?! The tons of disappointed Megaman fans disagree with you Capcom. They should just admit without Inafune they're clueless.
when the 3ds is at 20 million capcom will turn a new leaf again.
Capcom, Square Enix... Don't know their audience. I should be president and CEO of both companies. First thing first is make resident evil 6, then sort DMC out, then make mml3 but for ps360. More IPs, a real monster hunter game for pc/ps3/60. Boom. Capcom stock price up 800%! Square enix I could sort out too.
what do you mean by real monster hunter game? last time i checked the wii and psp monster hunters were plenty real and ps3 and 360 yeah aint no gamers on those platforms play that kind of stuff i herd the on on xbox dident do so well hmm maybe cus der are all plating shooting typi games same as for ps3
The 3DS has barely been out 5 months. Give the install base a chance to grow and at the same time demand will increase. I can't believe they showed those trailers and allowed fans to even choose Megaman's design all to just throw it back in our faces a few weeks later.
If direct fan support was such an issue then they should have put it on a more established system. I for one wasn't going to buy a 3DS just to play it, but if it was on the PSP.
Sadly, we're in a generation where many gamers shout loudest on forums, crying out for new IP, innovation, or sequels to titles long since beyond their prime... but when push comes to shove, rarely do people actually go out and BUY said games. Child of Eden anyone? =(
I played Child of Eden. I don't really understand any hype it got. It being priced at $50 didn't really seem worth it. I think I would have felt ripped off if it was even a dl title that cost $15.
Child of Eden should have been released on PSN and Xbox live just like REZ HD because it does not have value for a retail release.Im not saying the game is bad,its actually good for a niche group of people like me ,but in my view there are plenty of games on arcade Live and PSN that have more value than Child of Eden.
Maybe Capcom should check the internet some time. I keep telling myself that they cancelled it so they can release it on a different system, but I know that's just wishful thinking...
What kind of BS is this?.....
Yes Capcom is right...We don't want the most requested Megaman game...NO. What WE gamers want are rereleasing games every few months and being milked for DLC that's not worth the asking price....That's what we want. /sarcasm. I'm sick of Capcom with gen!
to bad u ps3 and 360 gmes still buy all the dlc and the games ya claim are rehashes so its what ya gamers want these days
I hope your not talking to me...I refuse to buy any DLC.
I'm amaze Capcom is still in business
Capcom is losing it...and if they keep this Sh*t up; every capcom staff/worker is going to end up working for McDonald.
Yeah right..... keep ruining all of your IP's
*sniffs the air* Man you guys smell that? It smells like......BULLS**T!
If Capcom was smart they would of release MEGA MAN. I remember playing all Mega Man titles from the NES and Play Station Mega Man X Series and the N64 version sorry forget the name of the title. I'm really tick off Capcom cancel Mega Man Legends. They must me freaking crazy to cancel that. DON'T THEY KNOW HOW MANY MEGA MAN FANS THEIR OUT THEIR? I haven't played Mega Man since NES days. BRING IT OUT CAPCOM
They should have released it on a console not on a handheld.
They are working really bad!They release a dvd version of ultimate marvel vas capcom 2 that have 8 new foes on US and EU and release a digital only version of RE4 and Code Veronica HD in US,EU and UK!Jesus im not going to buy MVC 2 ultimate mostly because they most likely will release another version after ultimate (just like SF ),but if an disc edition of RE4 and Code Veronica HD has available i will get her!Digital at the same price no way!
actually it was because one of the main developers left the project... and you had haters saying oops 3ds is losing support.. if anything after the holiday games and sales ....3ds may have too much support.. although nintendo need to start cutting support for the ds and shift focus fast.
I would have bought this even without a 3DS...
The 3DS would have been fine, i doubt Crapcom is going to increase production value and port this to an HD console, although, knowing them, they'll port it, but keep it in a 3D format, so there's doubles of the image and you would have to buy Crapcom 3D glasses to play it.
