Big Mega Man Legends 3 Announcement Slated For Next Week

Hear that? Why, it's the speculation train pulling into the station. All aboard! Tonight over at the Mega Man Legends 3 Devroom, liaison Greg (aka Grega Man) let slip that there's a pretty big announcement coming down the pike:

"We've got a big announcement planned for next Thursday, April 21st. There're still some details to be ironed out, but you can think of it as an "unveiling", of sorts."

"Unveiling." Unveiling of what, exactly? Well, that's the mystery. Methinks we'll be witnessing the first real footage of the game in action, which would seem to fall in line perfectly with a second helping of screenshots planned to be revealed by Eguchi shortly before the big announcement.

In other Devroom news, Greg also spoke a little about some of the future Devroom developments. Coming soon, short videos showcasing games in the Legends series hosted by Director Eguchi and Producer Kitabayashi. Mega Man Legends 1 and 2 will be featured (the former already up for viewing here), but The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, curiously, won't. Instead, Greg says "one other game you may find interesting" will be showcased in its place. Great Five Island Adventure, perhaps? It's canonical, after all, not like some of the other side-games in the series.

We'll be keeping an ear out. This coming week certainly sounds like a big one for the Devroom..

  1. I'd actually watch him play 5 island adventure

  2. Great Five Island Adventure!!!

  3. It COULD always be that the game WAS greenlit and will be released. :D

  4. I doubt it's actually gonna be a big deal.

  5. :D What a coinkidink.
    April 21st just so happens to be mah birfday. :3

    Looking forward to that present!

  6. A good easter egg that should have been suggested was having an arcade or a bar of sorts in Teomo Town in Legends 3 which has an arcade machine of 5 Island Adventure. Other than that...awesome, exciting news! =D

  7. I plan on being indignant if they showicase any of the games us westerners didn't get in overview. Worse yet if we're getting highlights in lieu of the game in anticipation for Legends 3 actively referencing it.

  8. it's an UNVEILING, guys. Not an announcement :/

  9. Watch 'em unveil Zero as a main character and chaos summarily ensue in the Devroom.
