Megaman Legends 3, the 3DS sequel to a great series on the original Playstation, has been discontinued. Despite all the effort Capcom made to get the community involved they're going to cancel it anyway. From the way the message is worded it's a safe to say the decision most likely came from one of the higher ups. I'm guessing it's a shining example of why Inafune left the company in frustration.

A Message from Capcom:
"We'd like to thank you for your ongoing loyal support of Mega Man Legends 3. Today, however, we must regrettably announce the discontinuation of this project.

From the outset the MML3 Project was intended to give gamers across the world insight and input into the development process. Part of this process includes an assessment of whether the title will go into full production, and is based on a number of criteria with input from different sectors of the company.

Unfortunately it was not felt that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project met the required criteria, and it is with regret that we must announce that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project has been cancelled, meaning that Capcom will not be releasing the Prototype or the full game. Additionally, updates of the Mega Man Legends Developer Room will cease as of today, though the North American Developer Room and its forums will remain open indefinitely.

We can only express our deepest apologies to all of you who have lent us your unending support, including participation in the Mega Man Legends 3 Developer Room. On behalf of the entire Legends team, please accept our sincere apology for failing to meet the expectations of the fans.

We thank you all so much for your extended support of this title and this community, and we hope that you will continue to support the Mega Man franchise as well as other Capcom games."

This is absolutely sickening. ELEVEN YEARS OF WAITING AND THEY JUST SAY "lol noep".

At least we can always look forward to some more Resident Evil spinoffs, am I right?
coincidence. i see this after playing megaman 9 on my wii all day.

Most likely. Capcom's business plan seems to be port Resident Evil to everything, fire all their experienced developers, and stomp out anything which has a glimmer of hope.
I didn't hear about this. Capcom is dead to me too.
The fans are taking it well.
I'm one of the biggest Megaman fans you can find. I feel like slitting Capcom's throat. Capcom is dead, Megaman is dead. Rest in peace, Megaman.
I share the same regards as both of you, SuperAntx and Fugsnarf. This is really depressing to see such a potentially good game and a good franchise go to waste.
I've been waiting for a Starforce 4 game to come out, but nothing. They use the same graphics and never improve the game, dunno why it's so hard...

Feel for the Megaman Legends fans, I'd be pretty upset too. (I'm not a ML fan, but even I would've been interested in the game.)

CAPCOM! T.T
Capcom should have brought back the power stone series, was the funnest game in my opinion.
I miss Megaman Legends. They totally should've finished it.
Yeah, Power Stone was neat.

Seems like Capcom has most of their hope in Street Fighter.
Yeah, all Capcom seems to produce is RE and SF.

This is the result of following the Hive Mind.

If someone says they play "SF", I'ma just say they play "Stupid Fuckin shit?"

Capcom should really close it's doors, cause it just shot it's true biggest cash cow's fans in the foot by denying what they've DEMANDED for 10+ years.
Ha. That's amazing. Great find.
What the hell? Are they stupid or something? 3DS barely has any games right now. Based on the DS, its safe to say that the 3DS will sell very well. I hope this comes back to bite them in the ass so that they'll stop making stupid mistakes. "lol lets release another socom while the two best selling shooters are being released, but cancel a game for an console that has virtually no competition."

I would quote myself, but that would be obnoxious. I play SF.

Biggest Cash cow = Megaman Legends = game that hasn't had a sequel for 10+ years = Not the biggest cash cow

I solved the equation! : D

ps. Capcom pretty much stopped SF, I think Starforce is there last one as I can't see them making Starforce 4 on the 3DS, unless they were waiting on purpose.

You guys think Capcom is beginning to drop the baby they once held so tight? (Megaman anything)


Work on Decadence :(
Speaking of the 3DS, it is halarious how Nintendo is like, "Why isn't it selling?" "Because I don't see any epic games out yet!"
I have to hand it to Nintendo for having the balls to do what they just did. They aren't fucking around.
