Mega Man Legends 3 Canceled – More 3DS Woes for Capcom

Link: Official Announcement (Capcom Unity Blog)

Now this is sad news for Mega Man Legends fans and 3DS owners, Capcom has decided to discontinue development of Megaman Legends 3 (both the prototype and full release) citing inability to meet certain criteria for the company. In the FAQ following the short statement Capcom said that this was not related to Keiji Inafune’s departure from Capcom earlier this year.

Speculating on the reasons as to why it was canceled, one of the big reasons would be the current state of the 3DS which is not selling to expectations just 3 or 4 months after it’s release. Second reason may be shifting resources from 3DS development to other platforms after the poor sales of recently released Resident Evil Mercenaries. Or it could be that neither of these reasons were major factors and instead the game was not good enough or too ambitious for the platform. Whatever the reason this is more troubling news for Capcom, garnering additional negative attention after their permanent save debacle in Resident Evil Mercenaries. It is also one less game to look forward to on the already slim lineup of games for the 3DS.

  1. After having the highest selling version of Street Fighter 4, how could they do this? They had better have some killer apps ready to support the 3DS with. At least put Inticreates up to making a new Megaman series for the 3DS or Wii U.
