Welcome aboard, friends, to the Legends Never Die campaign, a massive, joint operation between myself, Legends-Station, and The Mega Man Network. Our goal is simple, albeit powerful. Together, as a community, we will keep Capcom aware of how much we want MML3 and ensure it remains in the spotlight. Let it be made clear, we are not afraid about the game being cancelled, no; we are simply closing off any route that might lead to that outcome. As Devroom members, our responsibilities go far beyond thinking of ideas and responding to the Devteam. We are marketing, we are PR, we are consumers, and most of all, we are fans.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to snail-mail Capcom. Using pre-designed postcard templates, we are tasking you to mail Capcom your demands to see Mega Man Legends 3 completed. The postcards are your vehicle to Capcom's offices. They will get to the hands of many higher-ups, so you've got to make your message clear and powerful. Personalize it. Pour your heart and soul into it. You've waited a little over a decade for this thing thing; show Capcom just how much you want Legends 3 to happen!
All the details after the jump!
- Angry (Large/Small)
- Disturbed (Large/Small)
- Guh! (Large/Small)
- Happy (Large/Small)
- Huh? (Large/Small)
- Sad (Large/Small)
- Scream (Large/Small)
- Swirls (Large/Small)
A postcard is useless without an address, so do get equipped with the following:
Capcom Entertainment, Inc.
800 Concar Drive, Suite 300
San Mateo, CA 94402
Who to address it to? Well, you've a handful of options. You can't go wrong with Devroom liaison Greg "GregaMan" Moore, but it also couldn't hurt to shoot one to Seth Killian, Christian Svensson and Shawn Baxter. Oh what the heck, just send them one each! We're thinking of a three week-long time frame to send the postcards, so if you are able, try to get on it ASAP!
We've spent the last few days planning the Legends Never Die movement, so bear with us as we finalize future projects and aspirations. Next up on our agenda, we're planning on opening a central hub for fans to converge and "scheme" together. That part is a little ways off, but in the meantime, you've got some work to do of your own.
Mega Man fans across the world, I implore you to unite under our cause. Not just for the sake of Legends 3, but for the sake of the franchise itself. We have to ban together and show Capcom there is an audience out there, and it's hungry for more Blue Bomber.
Spread the word; we're taking this one to Capcom.
Yeah that's nice and all but at the end of the day they'll get tossed in the fire place.ReplyDelete
Heck just ask the movement to Xenoblade a North American release how their campaign went.
Capcom will either release this or they won't. Letters from a few irate fans aren't going to make an ounce of difference.
Screw you, anon. That attitidue won't get us anywhere.ReplyDelete
Let's do this!ReplyDelete
Writing mine now.ReplyDelete
Sure, I'll try to help.ReplyDelete
How does one print a postcard? All I have is standard printer paper.ReplyDelete
You can print it just like that. I send out "postcards" all the time. Just print it out on regular paper.ReplyDelete
OpRainfall member here, you have my sword. Let's keep creative, fun and unique games alive.ReplyDelete
Good to hear, sir. It'd be great if you can put in a good word with the OP:R heads. We gotta spread this around.ReplyDelete
Well, Capcom of Japan still have Rockman Dash 3 on their site.ReplyDelete
The link is gone.ReplyDelete
Same thing happend with MMU.
Site was still there, link was gone.
While your at it why dont you help us with Operation Rising Beetle! To help bring Medabots back to the states. More info here: http://s1.zetaboards.com/Medabots_Corporation/topic/4350033/1/ReplyDelete
Heh, so this is what you were talking about.ReplyDelete
It would be great for members of Operation Rainfall to help out as well. But I think in order to be truly successful, this can't be an English-only effort.
Rainfall seems to be falling on deaf ears at NoA. In comparison, this is concerning a game that does not appear to be green-lighted yet, and our target is stationed half a world away...
Mailing out five today.ReplyDelete
Do you think an e-mail is ok? I live in Brazil and I don't think my postcard would make it in 3 weeks.ReplyDelete
You can do both, Henrcast. We'll more than likely be extending the campaign beyond three weeks.ReplyDelete
Desde españa unos locos lo haremos!! xDReplyDelete
Igual que hizimos con Xenoblade
Printed out a version of each post card and plan on sending them all friday!ReplyDelete
We need more people!
Not that I look down at fan movements, but isn't it a bit of paranoia and overreacting just because Capcom went a little quiet on their games? They won't always provide us with a 24/7 status update on a game's progress.ReplyDelete
*sigh* It's times like this that I wish my close friends liked Rockman as much as I do, (enough to care about this...) Regardless, I'll send off a few letters and then post a link to this article on my dA page to help get the word out.ReplyDelete
Hey P-Dude, what if I'm a fan from outside the States or if I can't mail them one?ReplyDelete
Do e-mails count?
Thanks everyone for their support! I'll be sending in my letters tomorrow, Go Mega Man!ReplyDelete
Absolutely. There's a direct Capcom e-mail address you can find on their site However, if you can, try to send a letter. Don't worry about it not arriving on time within the time frame.
i am avery very lazy person and anything i want to do usualy never gets done, but this, THIS my friends is an action i shall not take lightly. i wont just shrug it off and say ill do it tomorrow, i wont take my time and i wont send just one letter. this game has been a long time coming. we have all waited on this for many years and were overjoyed at sight of the blue light at the end of the tunnel. we as a community will show capcom how many fans megaman has! we will show them we wont give up untill megaman is brought unto us yet again! i shall see this through, TO THE END!!! WHO IS WITH ME!!!ReplyDelete
Now go back and replay X4 like a good fan of a niche franchise. Because we're not getting anything better than what we have.
its really great to see youReplyDelete
That Shane is a spambot.ReplyDelete
What the hell is going on?
I'll be sure to send tons of these, I've always wanted to play MML. While you're at it, sign my petition http://petitiononline.com/mml3bckReplyDelete
uh, too bad, guys. it's cancelled.
This cancellation is just all the more reason to continue this campaign! Look, Capcom cancelled the game because they don't think it'd get a lot of attention or sales. Granted, only a complete IDIOT would think this, considering fan response in the first place, but if we keep this up and keep sending these, maybe they'll realize how much people want this and un-cancel it? I realize it's a longshot, but it's worth a try, right? I also think we need to send these over to Japan, since it IS Capcom Japan who made the decision.ReplyDelete
Shouldn't we maybe also target the Japanese Capcom...? Or get some Japanese fans to do the same but for their respective heads? I mean... It's Capcom of JAPAN making the game, not Capcom of America...ReplyDelete
That's no good reason to stop doing this. Frig, that's a better reason to START. Why did Mega Man Network take their post about this down? Now is the time to make this happen!!ReplyDelete
The MM network took down their post? Wtf? Aren't we doing this anymore? I'll spend $42 on letters to annoy the hell out of Capcom!ReplyDelete
@Crystal: Considering CoJ is producing the game and CoA is only translating it, certainly! The worst CoA could do is make a bad or lazy localization.ReplyDelete
There has been a large interest expressed across the Internets for the campaign. Some are more concentrated than others. You're already familiar with Legends station throwing in it's support, but there are a number of other pages that hope to get invested.
A rather popular facebook page:
A youtube channel:
And various disgruntled fans across the internet who have yet to hear about, or throw their support in for the project. I've been working the past day to get communication going between everyone, to get all the fans on the same page, but word is still speading of teh cancellation and, well, I was hoping that by contacting the Big Three I'd be able to get some help in that. :)
In particular, I've been keeping tab son the facebook page, and there's lots of plans being thrown around. Some want to go to Otakon, and show their disapproval in person at the Megaman panel - not anything vular, of course, just a distrbution of flyers, voicing their opinions, and - most importantly - getting the fans together. This, especially, seems like something that could bare fruit: there are currently four or five fans wanting to see this happen, all of them ready to go to Otakon.
Meanwhile, there's still ongoing discussion on the Legends Station forum, and they've received a good bit of traffic since yesterday's announcement. If there's anything else a single Anon like me could be doing, well, I'm more than ready for it. Thank you.
Thank you so much, Protodude! I've been looking for those letterheads everywhere! I'll send my letters out as soon as the sun rises!ReplyDelete
MegaMan fans of the world, UNITE!! =D
This is what we fight for!!

Hey everybody, guess what. I just went and posted comments on youtube to tell megaman lovers to go to this website. I told them that there are comments that were said by capcom you wouldn't believe. Also, we should "invade" the japanese capcom too.ReplyDelete
I already sent in my letters. ^_^ReplyDelete
Between this and the 100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Legends 3 campaign on Facebook, Capcom's definitely taking notice.
Check out this link:
"Like" Mega Man Legends 3!
I really, seriously hope that this doesn't end up looking like spam, but I just wanted to mention that those who want to get their postcard professionally printed, either because of having no printer or for a better presentation, can do so here - http://www.print-services.org . They cover both the US and the UK, and are quite cheap (and there's an option for two sizes of postcard).ReplyDelete
The best bet is to size your chosen image to 11cm high by 15cm wide, and save it as a JPEG using an image-editing program, and then use the "A6" sized postcard option on the website. Check the radio-button to have the image fill the page from left to right, so that no borders are present, before removing all of the optional example text on the front and back, which will leave you with a ready-to-write postcard.
I ordered mine yesterday, and will send it to Capcom as soon as it arrives. Good luck, everyone.
What if I can't send my letter because say... Delivery service on my country sucks?ReplyDelete
If you can't send your letter, participate in the following here: http://legends3.com/ReplyDelete
I just did this today, because Legends never die.ReplyDelete
