    Original story:

    With fans still wondering why Capcom cancelled the fan-based Mega Man Legends 3 project and prototype, Capcom Europe has an answer: lack of an audience.

    Responding to one user via the Capcom Europe Twitter, the company commented:

    it's a shame the fans didn't want to get more involved if we saw there was an audience for MML3 people might change minds

    Update: Capcom Europe's Twitter has clarified its comments:

    Apologies again. The original comment was in relation to the interaction in the Dev rooms NOT the fans who have been nothing but supportive[/p]

    The updated sentence proves one thing: capcom no longer cares about Megaman

    Looks like one of the only games I'd buy the 3DS for won't be released, I don't know whether to feel happy or sad.

    If they weren't confident about the game selling, than why release it? They're a company not a charity.

    To me, they look worse for catering and relying so much on fans. Innovation will not be found in them: the devs, both young and old, have to bring the feats to the game itself.

    I know Capcom are being idiots right now but they're beyond insane.


    Or give it to Inafune's company. At least he'd know what to do with it.

    I've seen a trailer for this game.

    In fact, they were asking people about things to implement in the game...(as far as I understood)

    Maybe they weren't getting enough participations from the gamers, and they cancelled it, thinking that no one cared about the game.

    Maybe ?

    They should of at least released the demo on eshop to see how many potential customers there were first. They don't even know how well it would've done.

    Why do I think Capcom is technically retarded?
    Are they out of reasons already?

    It's an interesting point.


    Capcom may be schizophrenic: they make a Humongous amount of games under the same license, (like the street fighter series, or megaman)

    they launched some spin offs of those games (megaman battle network, megaman legends, megaman ZX, megaman Zero...)

    and they dont want to release a megaman legends 3 game ?

    Knowing that if it is any good, they may be releasing megaman legends 4 one year after ?

    Capcom is schizophrenic, after all.

    My post from a fan site about the situation:

    Source: The Mega Man Network

    Its just Capcom of Europe, the forgotten and most neglectful of the departments of Capcom. They (or probably the only ignorant and arrogant person on this Tweet Duty) do not reflect the overall sentiments of Capcom as a whole.

    They would if they could, but part of it is still owned by Inafune. One potential reason why they scrapped the project altogether.

    So Inafune should pass the license of MM Franchise to Nintendo, I KNOW Nintendo will rock MM and bring back the franchise on track. Atleast Nintendo doesn't cancel games.

    Its a possibility, but only time will tell at this point. I want to wait and see if Inti Creates disconnects from Capcom completely and join Inafune at his company, that will then take away more of a hold away from capcom.

    Next Capcom's Production Studio 1 or 7 will have to disband as those are the two main in house departments that deal with Megaman games and Megaman related material.

    this is going sound so noobish but...

    who is Inafune?

    and do you guys think the cancel is blamed to the person who makes mega man who got fired/quit

    some one quote me about the fired/quit part if i'm wrong or right about it.
