    Yup, the desperation levels are off the charts. The fanbase moved on from whining to have the game made to actually making the game themselves.

    God those environment models. Oh well, as long as it stops people from complaining constantly, I guess.

    I fail to see how they can recreate a game that was never released.
    It's more like a Megaman Legends fangame using the limited information available on MML3.
    It could end up being a good fangame anyway, but fangames of this scale are almost never completed.

    At least they seem to know what they are doing. Hopefully no companies come forward to stop the project for using their IP like Hatsune Miku or ... MegaMan.

    In which the fanbase refuses to let go of a game that probably wasn't going to be all that great to begin with.

    Honestly, guys, it's a little embarrassing. There are people with PTSD who recover faster than this fandom.

    When I saw this, I immediately thought of the fan remake of Mother zero that has never been completed but is still surprisingly being worked on.

    What made Megaman Legends such a fantastic series that it has created such a fan following? :o

    That is a question I would love to know the answer to. I have only played megaman legends 1 but I did not see anything special about it, as opposed to the megaman x series which I thought was remarkable.

    I can see a Cease and Desist order from capcom on the way (like what happened to that 3D chrono Trigger game that squaresoft now square Enix) did if anything instead of a CAD I would hire these guys it'll be another blow to capcom's PR if they force a cancelation of the project

    It looks pretty good, lol, i wish them luck if they manage to go thru the legal barriers that they can encounter.
    At last someone is doing something for this megaman type of game.

    Around the time of the cancellation, and the subject times it was dredged back up, I made comments along the lines of "has an air of the bad N64 game around it". Unity and fan game being part of it.... they might actually succeed, give or take C&D or the usual apathy.

    Actually that's quite Easy and I'm suprised that they waited so long.
    Megaman Legends 3 was a game which creation was really community driven.
    People would submit bosses, level designs, enemy designs in a forum and the community would decide on which is best thus Capcom implementing it into the game.
    So all the people who were active in this community would know about 50~70% on what the game would look like minus the story.

    It starts with the first game being pretty well done on its own and a decent base for the start of a series. An the follow up tripling the efforts of the first one and following up in unexpected ways that really stuck with the fanbase. Now days though anything they did isn't to special. Large bosses, cell shaded look, a functioning camera, a targeting system, and loads of customization. Things that are easy to find now.

    So it the games pretty much have story going for them, which in a Megaman game you usually aren't around for. They had a more cinematic feel compared to others in the series, with OK voice acting to boot. No megaman 8 "dactor whairy", or X4's "WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOR!!!" An again while the first one laid it all out it was the second one that really bumped it up. Following up with a lot of answers, what happened to roll's parents, megaman's past, and everything in the pudding! All led to a cliff hanger with megaman stuck on the moon, and earth about to be under attack.

    To note literally every question got answered, outside of what the hell the motherload was. Thing is the answers ended up damning a few characters to things like memory loss or body snatching. So their plot threads aren't really finished either.

    An alternative way for some people to see it is, look at what resident evil 4 did for resident evil when it came out. :/ Through gameplay and story telling, coming off the side scroller games legends was quite a jarring experience.

    Anyway that is best I can explain it outside of saying go play the games. Legends 1 can be emulated fine, but 2 is the problem :/ mid way through the game there is a water section which is really cool. However it plays with how the game works in stupid ways making it hard to emulate. An forget about the side game the misadventures of tron bon which last I checked had text issues. x.x

    The big spoiler is it never had such a huge fan following. It was a spin off for Megaman. It had some fans but it never did that great, especially compared to core Megaman. For some reason people through a bitchfit when MML3 got canned and all the sudden proclaimed themselves as the "biggest Megaman Legends fans" and started talking about how the games were "so great" or "hidden gems".

    Hope they do a good job with it. You don't want waste a lot of time on something you're not getting paid to do. The graphics could be improved.
