OMGN: Is Mega Man Dead?

A gaming icon might be gone for good.
The week of July 17 could be one of the darkest in history for many gamers, as it might be the end one of the industry's founding fathers -- Mega Man (called Rock Man in Japan). Recently, Mega Man’s parent company, Capcom, decided to cancel the blue bomber’s latest planned adventure, Mega Man Legends 3. While this cancellation put a dagger in the hearts of thousands of gamers worldwide (many have waited upward of 10 years for a Legends sequel), this is just the tip of the iceberg of what could be the demise of one of the most popular video game characters over the last 25 years.

The story is too old to be commented.

Really, dead, because a handheld title got canceled? If Mega Man Legends 3 was coming out on the PS3 and 360 I would care. But the DS, who cares!?

And no Mega Man is not dead, Capcom would never kill a character they can milk forever, and ever, and ever.

The Megaman series started to go downhill after they couldn't think of any interesting names for villains that ended with "man". Sure, Iceman, Flashman, Bombman and Magnetman all made sense, but the ones that come after...oh let's say Mega Man 3 were just terrible.
