pledging support in reinstating Mega Man Legends 3. In other words, the man is officially on our side.
Originating from his personal blog, the statement has been translated into English courtesy of Team Legends. Select portions below (full piece available at Get Me Off the Moon's FaceBook page):
"A product which has ignored the fans' hearts as it has taken shape cannot be born a hit. We cannot give up on the idea of rebooting DASH as long as the fans' hearts continue to give the series life. I also think that I will continue cheering on these fans, and I will continue to feel as though I am a special member of this revival project myself. I would like to see the day that my juniors' dreams of reviving DASH 3 come true. There are various voices which recklessly fly around throughout this movement, however, I will continue cheering them on.
"If the fans' feelings are considered, those fans can sway the producers and strengthen their resolve. That feeling of wanting to give up can be eased by overcoming all the obstacles and challenges we may face, until DASH 3 is completed at last. It can happen! Together, let's never give up. Let's continue cheering, okay? Do your best, my juniors!"
It is the hope of many that Inafune's presence will help draw in more supporters, simultaneously eliciting a response from Capcom. A sort of "Oh, wow. He's in on this?", reaction. Of course, we can't guarantee this will help things on Capcom's side. Nonetheless, I'm confident Inafune's support will help bring more attention to the campaign, at the very least skyrocketing the number of "likes."
Now then, I've gotta emphasis something: Inafune is not the secret Capcom supporter we've been teasing. That news is still forthcoming. All I can say is he's been a large part of the Mega Man franchise for well over a decade, having a hand in the production of several titles. Keep your expectations in check, and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
