Four years ago today Mega Man Legends 3 was cancelled. To honor its memory, the folks at Get Me Off the Moon (aka 100,000 Strong for Mega Man Legends 3) are launching two campaigns for the occasion. One is aimed at reviving Mega Man Legends 3, and the other is a Red Ash awareness campaign. For the latter, GMOTM will be collaborating directly with Keiji Inafune.
Full details after the jump.
As described in the video, there are two campaigns:
"Operation Legendary List"
This campaign is aimed at MML3's revival. The idea is simple: tweet with the hashtag #ReviveMML3 to Sony's Gio Corsi (@giocorsi) and Adam Boyes (@amboyes), who helped bring the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter to life, and the official Capcom Twitter (@capcom_jp and/or @Capcom_Unity).
Sony recently stated that they were "building a list" of cult titles to help with crowdfunding, and we want to make sure that MML3 is on that list--in big, bold letters! We're really leaving this campaign open, though, so you're free to tweet to any company that you'd like to see help with MML3, such as Nintendo, CyberConnect2, or hey, even Microsoft if you want! Just remember to use the #ReviveMML3 hashtag.
To provide a little incentive, three prizes will be given away: a new, physical copy of the 8-bit Mega Man Legends 3 fan-game+soundtrack, a boxed Rockman DASH 1+2 Value Pack for PSP (new in box!), and a beadsprite of Barrett and Aero on their Fly Carrier.
"Rise From The Ashes" Contest
Our Red Ash campaign aims to promote Inafune's spiritual successor to the Legends series. While we don't think either Kickstarters for the project are in danger of failing, we think they could stand for an extra push, as well as more promotion. To that end, we've teamed up with Comcept and Keiji Inafune to bring you our "Rise From The Ashes" contest! To enter, all you have to do is tweet your Red-Ash-themed fan-art and music using the hashtag #RiseFromTheAshes. For those of you who don't use Twitter, you can send your entries to our email, firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be using the GMOTM Tumblr to share your entries: bringbackmml3.tumblr.com. You may enter up to three different works per person.
As for prizes, Comcept will be giving three winners Red Ash shirts of their sizes signed by the lead dev members of the game, including Inafune himself. That's not where it ends, though! We're thrilled to announced that Keiji Inafune will actually be judging this entire contest himself!
The prize winners for the "Operation Legendary List" will proceed one month from now, August 18th at 11:59PM PST. The "Rise From The Ashes" contest will run until July 31 at 11:59PM PST (i.e. the end of this month).
