@dk_lance writes, "I’m sad to know Legends 3 was cancelled for 3DS. Someone making decisions at Capcom’s R&D HQ should get fired…" A legitimate, and well founded plea. What say you, @CapcomEuro?
Wait, what? The blame game is in full swing, and we're on the other end of the barrel?
Disgruntled with Capcom Euro's response, even more Twitter users chimed in to join the fight, and CapcomEuro was there to field them all. Brace yourself, because if you weren't frustrated before, you soon will be. Hit the jump when you're ready...
@kdawg3000 led the charge, churning out three well founded replies:
@CapcomEuro Please give us a response. Fans are rallying as we speak, writing, petitioning, the works. At least release the demo to (cont)
@CapcomEuro (cont) To see how it fares. It’s pretty much done, from what I hear, so what do you have to lose?
Right! What do you have to lose? Your response, Capcom?
and then... a sliver of hope:
@kdawg3000 it's a shame the fans didn't want to get more involved :-( if we saw there was an audience for MML3 people might change minds
It appears that a lack of interest in the Devroom contributed to Legend 3's demise. The Devroom, from what I've been told, amassed some 15,000 users across the world. If that number were converted to sales figures, well, it's not pretty.
Even so, is it really fair to gauge interest in the project from the Devroom alone?
It is my firm belief that, had Prototype Version released on the eShop, the Devroom numbers would have *surged*. Right now, the eShop is starved for content. Prototype Version would have been the killer app that EVERYONE would be downloading. The game, itself, would have promoted the Devroom. But, nay, these plans fell through. They utterly fell through.
Uh-oh. Here comes my optimism. That last Tweet? See that? Should we take that at face value? Use that as pure motivation to rally the troops, prove there's an audience and get MML3 back on its feet?
Please, do sound off in the comments.
UPDATE: Capcom Euro's back at it again. Check it out for yourselves; stand up and defend what you believe in. And now, I leave you with this:
