If Inafune Wants a New MML, He Probably Wouldn't Be Denied

In a thread over at Capcom Unity, Christian "Sven" Svensson responded to a fan's inquiry regarding the potential of a new Mega Man Legends title and if Keiji Inafune is still adamant on producing a sequel. Sven's response:
“I can’t really speak on behalf of Inafune, but I do know that MM is near and dear to his heart. And if Inafune wants something badly enough, he is rarely denied in our greenlight/CS management meetings.”
Sounds a bit like a hint if you ask me. You never know what Capcom could be cooking.

  2. Also John Daimon(from Capcom) recently had a post on the Playstation blog for the release of MVC2. In it someone asked about Capcom releasing MML3 and John commented back with "MML3 eh? a lot of people seem to be asking about that one". Well it was something along those lines. Just seemed to me like he was hinting at the possibility. Yes I do realise this doesn't mean much just thought i'd share.

  3. @ModernDaySamurai: Actually that seems more like a bewildered offhand comment to me. "A lot of people seem to be asking about that one" isn't something I would say if I knew anything or thought it was coming, even if I were trying to throw people off.

    As I've said before, Inafune surely wants an MML3. He's Inafune! But there's a business side and he's got to make sure the time is right. Sometimes even when you want to make something you like to wait until you can make it soooo good that it blows the pants off people. And flies off the shelves too. And you have time and resources to put into it after having finished other projects. It's like not eating the cake in the fridge until you've finished the yard work. I have a feeling after the MvC 2 sales numbers come in, some things will be brought up in the darkest recesses of Capcom Japan.

    I wish I had Inafune's status, only because he gets to make whatever he wants. XD So I guess I could say Miyamoto too. But not for the fame, I want to make games!

  4. Personally, I think instead of making a Legends 3, they need to remake legends 1 with updated graphics and improved controls, possibly a slight re-write for a more serious storyline.
    That way you have a game that can appeal to more than just fans of the series, and opens up possibilities for the series to become relevant once again, taking a (hopefully successful) step back into 3D.

  5. Joy. Let's hope this doesn't get the Rumor Mill churning too much. Remember the last Legends based thing?

  6. Then, uh, why don't we have Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X sequels? I mean I know they didn't sell well but if Inafune can get his way....

    Yeah thinking it over a bit more I suppose you're right. I had just read that comment before reading this blog post and got over excited I guess. After all you won't find a bigger MML fan than myself.

  8. It had better be a hint, or else I'll do it. Do what? Well, I don't know yet. But it had better happen! Legends needs more love for it is sinfully underrated. Enough with the cameos and playable characters, the time is nigh for the Legends to continue...

  9. Well,if this is true,then maybe he doesan't want them,and is only saying that to make the fans happy?

  10. Who says he doesn't want it? Maybe he just doesn't have enough inspiration yet.
    Legends has a completely unique story unlike the BN/SF games which are rehashes of the same story.

    I'd rather wait long and have a good original game than one that was rushed just because fans wanted it.

  11. I don't know about the whole "waiting till the time is right" thing. I mean, Legends was great, and I definitely want a sequel, but it would seem only fans from 2 generations ago (PS1) would really want it. If we keep waiting, another generation will be here before we know it.
