In another effort to ease concerns, The Legends 3 team members themselves have come forward to address the issue via special message posted on the MML3 devroom:
"From all of us here on Mega Man Legends development team,
We realize that events of the past few days have given many of you great cause for concern, and we apologize for taking so long to get back to you.
We have been reading all of your comments from the past few days, many of them expressions of anxiety and many of encouragement. Honestly, though many of us are still a little dazed and confused about all of this, the “can-do” fire inside us is still burning as hot as ever!
Not only will the dev team continue on with Legends 3 Project, we will push forward even harder than before to complete Mega Man Legends 3! And just like up until now, we hope that you will continue to help the Legends 3 Project grow. Together, let’s make the best Mega Man Legends ever!
P.S. In the next post, we will be bringing you more details about our new powered-up Devroom community!"
The passion for MML3 is still there, and that's all that really matters. As stated on numerous occasions, the Legends 3 team is made up of some of the most talented staff members around, consisting of not only MML1 and MML2 veterans, but key staff members from Monster Hunter, Lost Planet and the Basara series. Inafune or not, these guys are here to see this game to completion. You've nothing to fear.
