    Seriously-I know they had to delay the release for "retooling" so any word? or are we going to be left in the dark about all this?

    Also how much retooling can be done to what basically comes out to be a "demo"?

    First, double post. Bad, bad.
    Second, It's only been a couple weeks since the e-shop came out. I thought I remembered hearing them say end of July or something for the Legends demo, but I can't remember where it was I heard that. It'll come when it comes. Also, it's a little more than a demo, it's a standalone pre-story to both build up to the game itself and to give us an idea of how it controls on the 3DS. Even if it's something small they want to make sure they do a good job on it.

    Capcom is missing out on a big chance if they don't get it out in the next couple weeks... If they can get it out early while there is still a lot of love for the e-shop it'll get a lot more attention because it's one of the few true 3DS ware titles... And if it IS it will get more sales... And more sales = greater chance of MML3 being made (they came out and said that if the prototype version does bad the game will be dead in the water -_-)

    Actually, it's probably in their best interest to wait right now. OoT3D hit's tomorrow, and I know I for on eam not going to want to play much else for a while. I bet you Capcom knows this and is holding back until the Zelda hype dies down enough.

    They delayed it. Can't wait, though.

    It's a downloadable (and I thought) free demo basically, I don't see why they'd delay it because of "Zelda hype".

    Nope, it is downloadable, but it'll cost $2 or there abouts. The sales of this "demo" are supposed to let Capcom know if it's even worth making the game.

    its going to cost between 2.99-8.99. they are trying to add more content so they can charge more.

    i think it will fail to sell enough downloads to make the actual game, but will have more episodes in the eshop later on.

    Unfortunately, that's not an option... at least not currently. If you read capcom's development blog, the demo literally is make or break for the game. Either the game will sell enough on the eshop to convince capcom to go to full production... OR it won't sell well enough and the game will be dead and gone and I shall cry myself to sleep... Probably Keiji Inafune (creator of all things mega man) will probably cry too.

    Uh, they expect selling a DEMO to go over well?
    I'd love to see a Legends 3...but i'm certainly not paying a dime for a demo of it.

    Also Guild, it'd be completely ignorant and brainless to even deny that releasing something 3DS related during OOT's moment of glory would demolish that releases popularity. There are some kiddies today who can try deny how awesome OOT is, but its popularity is going to be immense. You can bet on that.

    Thing is, it's not a demo.
    It's a Prologue to the main game, what happens in the prologue won't happen in the real game.
    You'll have a bunch of mission to do, you'll be able to go wherever you want within the city and I guess some more places, and you'll have access to a debug menu so you could change some things and play with other weapons and such.

    And there is also plans for "behind the scenes" type of extras as well to give insight on the development of the game so far... Let's just hope all these extras don't push the prologue so far back that they accidently neuter their eshop release...

    Gotta get that e-peen up!

    but since the topic has been bumped... I found this rather interesting last night:
    http://protodudesrockmancorner.blogspot.co...s-doing-it.html
    Here's the deal: Capcom removed Rockman DASH 3 from CoJ's front page. While the game's respective websites remain functional, the title is no longer showcased front and center. Mega Man Universe met a similar fate: the title was removed from Capcom Japan's website, and a few days later, it was officially cancelled.

    The fear that's currently setting the fandom ablaze is that this is a sign -- the supposed "first nail in the coffin" that will lead to DASH 3's cancellation. Normally, something so minor would not be a cause for concern, but the situation is all too familiar with Universe's death, and that's where fears are rooted.

    Before you get overly panicked, consider the following: Look at Capcom Japan's front page, look at the titles on display. These are games due for release within the confines of 2011 and early 2012. Rockman DASH 3's release date was never set in stone. What has happened, I believe, is a rational release window for DASH 3 was established internally that's beyond the scope of the company's planned 2011/early 2012 lineup. As a consequence, Capcom was left very little reason to continue promoting the game on the front page. Why upfront advertise a game that might not launch for a year at best? There's more immediate titles coming out that deserve that spot. It's a matter of prioritizing based on release dates.

    In short, you've got to be reasonable: given what we know about the game's development, there is no way DASH 3 will be on shelves by this fall or early 2012. Capcom has nothing to gain (at this time) from promoting the title on the front page; its release is simply too far off.[/p]
    There's a bit more if you follow the link.
