Some of you may remember that, a few months ago, Skybane Zero of 100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3 interviewed Reika Morishita. It was a success, to say the least. So you can imagine he was eager to try it again, but this time, with none other than Keiji Inafune.
Skybane gave Hanako, Inafune’s PR Manager, a holler. Unfortunately she “didn’t think an interview would be possible,” because Inafune no longer has a stake in the Mega Man franchise. But as compensation, she was able to get him to send a heartfelt message to the fans...
"Hello everyone, I am Keiji Inafune.
Thank you for following us on Facebook.
As I once wrote in my blog, I was very touched by your movement, “100,000 Strong For Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3“.
I am now independent, away from Capcom, so as you can tell, I stand in the same position as all of you when it comes to Mega Man Legends 3.
I stand beside you cheering for the same cause and hope.
I personally feel grateful for all your love for the title, and I respect your long-lasting passion. I will continue to personally support all your efforts.
I thank you all for showing so much love towards my very favorite creation.
As a game creator, I promise to continue creating more games that will appeal to all of you moving forward."
Ultimately, Inafune's words have no true bearing on the current Mega Man Legends 3 situation. But nevertheless, it's comforting to know the he shares in our passion. He's one of the guys!
Thanks to Skybane Zero for keeping us in the loop!
