Although Mega Man Legends 3's cancellation took place long after his departure, Keiji Inafune felt obligated to issue an apology to the fans and Devteam staff on his official blog today.
To the staff members, Inafune writes "The decision for the cancellation was out of my sphere, but as someone who took part in the development, I'd like to convey something to the staff: I'm sorry that I couldn't be of assistance." Saddened, Inafune was taken aback by the staff's tremendous motivation to continue the project without him. Nevertheless, he goes on to encourage the staff to continue to make a better game.
To us, the fans: "I'm truly sorry I couldn't take part until the end." The former project leader professes he is one of us -- closely watching the game's progress from the sidelines as a fan, and shares in our mourning.
"I didn't buy a 3DS for this project, but at the very least I'd like to have played the demo."
I hear ya, man.
Can he just buy the fuckin franchise already ???ReplyDelete
I agree with Anonymous...it becomes dangerous if Megaman is with C*apcom lolReplyDelete
Man, this sucks.ReplyDelete
@Anon1: Like Capcom would sell it. Even if they would, I doubt he as a startup owner having lived with game developer's pay would be able to afford it.ReplyDelete
Oh shut the hell up Anon.ReplyDelete
This is his fault he should have left after seeing the project through. His leave instigated the cancelation of both games and now he appologizes? right thanks alot why dont you go crawl back into whatever hole you slithered into after you left. Some "father" he is.ReplyDelete
I was going to buy a 3DS just for this game.ReplyDelete
It's gone, so the 3DS is gone to.
P.S. Anon raid FTW!
The cancellation was decided beforehand. On an unnamed board (which we all know and most likely visit) anon poster said that Legends 3 would be cancelled on 18th of this month some while ago. The reason why Legends 3 project was to promote 3DS, nothing more. Nobody could've done anything about the cancellation, it was decided beforehand. Not even Inafune could've done anything. It's no use starting to blame anyone, when the company's head office is the one pulling the strings like this.ReplyDelete
I swear, ever since Inafune left, Capcom just seems intent on killing the Megaman franchise.ReplyDelete
Why is he apologizing if it's not his fault?ReplyDelete
i see a boycott on the Megaman Tribute artbook coming our way. that what you get, crapcom.ReplyDelete
@Masterge77: They actually want self-destruction.ReplyDelete
I'm as pissed off as you guys are, but boycotting the Megaman Tribute means jack shit, it's published by Udon, not Capcom itselfReplyDelete
Yeah because "boycott Megaman" is a GREAT way to send a message to Capcom that we actually WANT Megaman. Capcom already doesn't realize it's more popular in the west than it is in the east.ReplyDelete
Stinks that his final wish was left unfulfilled. :/ReplyDelete
@one of Many Anons - the other Anon is correct. Boycotting the tribute hurts UDON, not Capcom. And considering UDON is giving us the most MM stuff right now, with more possible in the future, best to help them out.ReplyDelete
Stay classy, Inafking.ReplyDelete
I wish Inafune the best success in any upcoming video games he might be involved in with his two companies. If he becomes highly successful financially, he might be able to buy the Mega Man franchise from Capcom.
... Seriously, just read this.
Are you that stutid Capcom?
We love you too, Inafune-sama.ReplyDelete
The picture is fake.
Taking a look into 4chanarchive reveals the that post number then was about 70M.
However in the picture it's around 90M.
The picture was also not shopped. No analysis tool will identify it as fake.
It was made by saving a page on the PC and then changing the text in the html code.
Uh... boycotting the MM Tribute book is the LAST thing anyone should do. We should be SUPPORTING things that have Mega Man on them! If we're going to boycott anything, we should be boycotting things that Capcom puts out that aren't Mega Man related. Boycotting things that DO have Mega Man on them is just putting more dirt over Mega Man's grave!ReplyDelete
Also, I can see why Inafune would be apologizing and all, but honestly, none of this is his fault, so he has nothing to apologize for. If blame is to be case on anyone, it's the higher ups at Capcom that, by now, are pretty obviously trying to kill Mega Man.
Sad years for Mega Man... But the worst is yet to come, new MVC3 Plans leaked (Looks Legit)ReplyDelete
I don't agree with everything from/about Inafune, but I do have a great respect for him, and I'm sure he has to be very hurt about his final effort on the series being ended.ReplyDelete
Hang in there, Inafune.
To everyone else - it's silly to think Inafune or Nintendo can buy the MegaMan franchise. There is 0.00% chance Capcom plans on ever selling it (unless they do actually do go bankrupt, in which case they'd have no choice but to sell everything). Don't fool yourself thinking this could ever happen.
You da man, Inafune, and we know that you are just as disappointed as we are.ReplyDelete
Speaking of Inafune, if Capcom wants to turn a profit and please the fans, all in one fell swoop, they should contract DASH 3 out to Inafune and then publish it when he is done. Give the project to someone who actually still cares about Rockman. Who knows, maybe he'd welcome the fans to be involved!ReplyDelete
@One of the Many Anon's He probably feels sorry for the Fans even if it wasn't his fault i mean i would pe too!ReplyDelete
@One of the Many Anons He probably heels sorry for us fans even if it isnt his fault i mean i would feel sorry too there's Millions of Fans who have been dissapointed!ReplyDelete
