The End of Ryuusei: Planned All Along?
Some were quite shocked to hear that RnR3 may be the last title in the Ryuusei series, but we shouldn't be too surprised, this might have been planned all along. Allow me to explain:
When Ryuusei no Rockman (1) was first announced, it was being teased as the series to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the franchise. Thus, in 2006 RnR1 was released to celebrate the approaching 20th Anniversary, while the follow up (RnR2) celebrated the anniversary in full swing (2007).
From this logic, we can conclude that RnR3 will symbolize the end of the 20th Anniversary festivities this coming winter. As the 20th Anniversary comes to a close, so shall the series that celebrated it.
FUN FACT: Did you know each game in the series represents different intervals of time?
RnR2: The 'past' (ancient relics, Ooparts, etc.)
RnR1: The 'present' (the present experienced by the cast)
RnR3: The 'future' (fighting for the future)
