While fans all over the world would love nothing more than for Capcom to continue the development of Mega Man Legends 3, the tenacious Facebook group 100,000 Strong For Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3 have decided to take matters into their own hands.
In collaboration with Japanese community DASH 3 Reboot, 100,000 Strong will remake the ill-fated Prototype Version in the visual style of the 8-bit Mega Man games. Joining them in their efforts are two big-name Mega Man staff members. The first is Hideki Ishikawa; former Capcom character designer and illustrator. He will be handling the game's box art. The other is Makoto Tomozawa, the main music composer for the Mega Man Legends series. He will be composing a few tracks exclusive to this project.
The trailer above shows off a work-in-progress version. For the game to reach completion, however, a bit of funding is necessary. If you'd like to contribute to the cause, then you can PayPal whatever you’re willing to chip in to milktea(at)milcoco.net. Everyone who contributes, regardless of how much, will recieve a digital copy of the game when it's completed. Donating $50 USD or more nabs you a physical copy as well as your name in the credits.
The faster the donation goal is reached, the sooner the game will launch. They're hoping to have it up some time or around August. A playable demo will on-hand to download in the coming weeks.
