Legends 3 Townspeople Event Announced

Hot on the heels of the Bonne Mecha design contest comes the third community-wide Mega Man Legends 3 event. The Townspeople event, kicking off on December 7th, is a two in one deal in which various townspeople, assumingly, NPCs, will be revealed.

The first part of the contest will have you coming up with names and personalities for various townspeople; The second asks you to come up with a line of dialogue for the character to say based on a scenario Capcom intends to provide. Of course, you don't have to participate in both  -- one or the other is just fine, too! While this doesn't quite sound as involved as previous contests, it's sure to yield some interesting results.

Again, all this doesn't happen until the 7th; stay patient! For more details on the event, read up on the official post at Capcom Unity.

ALSO, as some of you have pointed our, there seems to be a glitch in the mecha contest voting system. As noted by jgonzo, everything should be working smoothly by tomorrow night.


  1. I really wish our site wasn't so gimped out.. the Western site doesn't have anything on the Japanese site, nonetheless this should make for a cool competition.

  2. This is exactly the kind of thing I hoped they'd be asking of the fans. NPCs are a big part of the charm of the series that brought the games to life, and by getting suggestions from real people all over the world, it's bound to seem all the more life like. And all the while it's a small enough task that the fans couldn't really ruin the game with stupid ideas. Great idea, if you ask me.

  3. I can't help but feel that this is going to be one big "official" fan game. It's no wonder they got Legends 3 to green light, their production costs will be greatly reduced with everyone just giving them concepts and ideas. Sure, they'll just take it all for free. Since this little percentage meter is at 1%, I bet 80% of the game will be conjured by fans. The world of business is so pathetic sometimes. Current day more times than others. Though in the end, if you cant beat em, join em. I will probably participate in this contest, lol.

  4. @model q
    I wouldn't say that...
    Little Big Planet.
    Some created a PINGAS stage for it. That ruined the game for me. D:

  5. @MegaMac I would take the 1% progress rating lightly, because it seems to completely disregard anything that happened before it. (i.e., Voting for the new Spotter, and that one blog post) When it finally does get a bump, it will probably go up a big amount to account for the events that have already taken place. Then it will probably be easier to gauge how much they want from the fans in the way of ideas.

    @Anon["PINGAS"] I honestly have no idea what you are talking about, but an NPC event for Legends 3 still seems pretty harmless to me.

  6. Imagine seeing a "human" NPC version of Punk, Air Man, Toad Man, Centaur Man, Search Man and Galaxy Man!

    @Anon1: What's the meaning of pingas anyway? I only know it originated from a YouTube video with Dr. Robotnik saying it. By the way, how the stage in Little Big Planet looks like?

  7. pingas is spanish word for dicks.

  8. This is the best game developing project ever. I thought whatever "collaboration" we'd be doing would be minor but we're deciding some MAJOR things here. I mean voting on the design of the main heroine? I don't think I've ever heard of that kind of thing. I'm loving Capcom right now.

  9. Anonymous #3:
    You don't happen to remember the "design a robot master" contests they had for a couple of NES Mega Mans?
