There was some Mega Man Legends 3 chatter on this week's Capcom Unity podcast. Unfortunately, it's not exactly sort of talk we were hoping for.
About halfway through the show (50:47), Greg, Seth and Brett publicly acknowledged 100,000 Strong For Mega Man Legends 3's recent milestone. In short, the staff offered high praise to the group's efforts; it's ability to converge and unite under a single cause. Unfortunately, the surpassing of 100,000 fans has no bearing on the game's revival. It's not going to be able to reverse the situation.. for now, at least.
Capcom then went on to reiterate their commitment to get the franchise back on track. According to Brett, those talks actually began no less than a couple weeks after he joined the company, shortly after Legends 3 was cancelled.
The rest of the discussion is more or less focused on much of the same stuff we've heard previously: things don't happen instantaneously, the company's aware of the passion of the fans, etc. And really, that's pretty much all there is too it. Actually, it was reassuring to hear we aren't the only ones on the edge. Capcom US staff is just eager to see what's next for the Blue Bomber as we are.
So stay tuned, my friends. We just gotta keep sticking this one out.
Thanks to all who sent this!
