    As most of you know by now, Capcom suddenly canceled Mega Man Legends 3 after more than 10 years of waiting. Not a lot of reasons were given, leaving us wondering what criteria they used to pull-the-plug out of the project.

    Capcom of Europe, however, later claimed through it's Twitter that the decision was made thanks to the fans lack of interest (http://protodudesrockmancorner.blogspot.com/2011/07/it-just-keeps-getting-worse.html).

    We are here to prove them wrong.

    Join the campaing simply by "liking" the 100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3, that alone is valuable support: http://www.facebook.com/pages/100000-Stron...149316248475958

    There you can find information about many courses of actions, like petitions and Operation Phoenix. Also, it is still possible to join the Devroom.

    Legends 3's cancellation was the number one topic on Japan's Twitter: the fans are there, let's show that to Capcom

    I will sit back and watch as this goes nowhere. When will people learn that the developers don't give two shits about the fans? If they did, games wouldn't be cancelled in the first place.

    I've never seen a facebook "reach X number of fans" thing work. But good luck.

    Also, the guy at Capcom responding to people's tweets must be smashing his head against his desktop.

    Petitions have worked in the past, for add ons, collectors editions, and so on. I've yet to hear about a game being resurrected, due to a online petition but I'd say it really depends on the developers. I'll sign up, as I have nothing to do at the moment.

    Already begun, and not on Facebook. Also most sites reported that the reason it fell was due to not meeting the standards expected by Capcom- not due to fan disinterest. In fact, here- http://www.capcom-unity.com/devroom they state that they are sorry to all of the loyal fans who were interested in the first place.

    Come on people, facebook is full of *insert object here*-ville loving non gamers- take your petitions elsewhere!

    Hey the angry fans rage is kinda working, Capcom passed on their comments to the dev team.

    I think it's a "send it to the devs when it gets higher numbers" kinda jobby.

    They're already amassed 14900+ likes, and when I refresh each couple of seconds it goes up, with more comments left.

    100,000 is way off but there's hope.

    Just in the hour since I've been monitoring it we've gained 1000 more likes and got featured on IGNs and 1up's facebook pages.

    Even though I don't have much interest in Megaman, I liked it just to see where it goes. [​IMG]

    Already past 16400 likes now.
    That took less than four hours to amass some 1500 likes.

    That's what happens when you have hosts who know nothing about videogames and are just there for sex appeal.

    Didn't know people still watched G4.

    They don't. Well not for video games at least, now it's just a channel where teenagers fap to the shows that are on there now like "Rated 'A' for Adult".

    I added my "like" to the cause. I love mega man series and it would be great to see this brought back from the terrible death of cancellation that so many other mega man games have suffered
