    Turns out that Capcom has been teasing us for quite a while with a new Legends game. Well here it is. Unfortunately, all we have right now is a logo. Announced at the Nintendo Conference just minutes ago- Megaman Legends 3. Apparently a new title in the series. Who knows where the series will go with the powerful new 3DS hardware? The prospect of a new 3D Megaman should excite most sane people though.

    Official PR-
    Almost 10 years to the date after the North American release of Mega Man Legends 2, I am very excited to announce that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project is a reality!
    Mega Man Legends 3 Project has just been announced at the Nintendo Conference 2010 in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS! While we can’t get into too many details, we can say that fans will have an opportunity to be part of the development process like never before as they interact directly with the team! How exactly? You’ll have to stay tuned for more news at New York Comic Con!
    We’ll have an exclusive video from Keiji Inafune shortly, but in the meantime, hit the jump for a special blog post from the game’s director, Masakazu Eguchi!
    MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3 PROJECT KICKS OFF!!
    Hi everyone! This is Masakazu Eguchi, director of MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3!
    So, how about that Keiji Inafune special interview? Did you like that?
    As you can see, Inafune is very enthusiastic about this project. And that new development style that he said he would go into more detail about later, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed by that. We think not only fans of the series, but anyone interested in Mega Man Legends will be like, “What? …OMG!!!”
    When I and the rest of the staff first heard that were that we were doing this, we were shaking in our boots. All of us were asking our bosses, “Are you guys serious?”
    But the proposition was interesting to say the least. So, now here we are making intense preparations and trying to stay on schedule.
    …Having said that, there are so many details about the project that I am dying to tell all of you… but you’ll have to wait and let your imaginations run wild for just a little longer, until the Comic Con in New York next month!
    Until then, I’ll use this blog to introduce to members of my team, and tell you a little about what’s going on here in the Dev Lab. I’ll do my best to update it at least once a week, so check back often!
    I’m also looking forward to hearing comments from all of you! [/p]

    There aren't any screens or videos (yet). Nor is there a release date. But i guess the announcement should be enough for you. New Megaman Legends coming!

    even tho they didn't say a whole lot the excitement they have for the project as made me excited about it.

    this sounds like it might be worth keeping an eye on.

    WE NEED A SEQUEL NAOOOO! I haven't played any of the Legends games, and never felt like it. This might be pretty sweet to try.

    I proclaim that this is awesome. I was a huge fan of how the first two played (even if the story was a bit out there...).

    Sweeet! I want a 3DS NAO! But with the price, maybe I can wait for a "lite" version.

    Huge fan of the first two. Hoping this one doesn't SUCK and that the controls are actually decent this time around. But I still want it to be 3rd person; I don't want my Legends cramped by FPS style.

    Words don't exist yet to describe the sounds of the fangirlish squeals that erupted out of me when I read this.

    ........[​IMG] I really hate you Capcom [​IMG]
    Stupid 3DS [​IMG]
    This should be a console game not a handheld [​IMG] it's always been a console game (don't mention Megaman legends that was ported to the PSP that was Japan exclusive and a port [​IMG]) [​IMG]
    They better release a better version on a console (don't argue with the better part, it stands to reason a console version would be much better given you can do more with it than you could a handheld). [​IMG]

    Actually, my first reaction was.
    "HOLY SHIT! FUCK YEAH!"

    But when I read 3DS, my question wasn't "Why portable when console is better?"

    My question was "Why Nintendo when Megaman Legends 2 was out on PSOne?"
