Way to go.
YOU were given the reins to co-develop the latest entry into the Mega Man Legends 3 franchise, and you completely blew it. Where did you go wrong? I don’t know—maybe it was your “idea” that the first level be a pixel-for-pixel remake of the original Super Mario Bros., or your instance that the final boss be called “Dick Man,” who wields a giant dick. (Luckily, Saints Row: The Third will still be taking that idea into consideration.) Whatever the case may be, the crowd-sourced Mega Man Legends 3 for the 3DS has been officially canceled by Capcom, like Mega Man Universe before it.
And you made him cry, too.
Capcom posted an FAQ on Capcom-Unity about the cancellation, which manages to make things even more depressing with questions like:
Q: Is there a chance the ideas recruited in the Devroom will be used in future games?
A: No, I am afraid not.
Q. Will there be any future projects that involve fan participation in this manner? Or was this a one time experiment?
A. We will certainly continue to welcome suggestions and comments from Capcom’s community on current and future titles although right now there are no projects with plans to replicate the same level of interaction.
As for why the game got canceled, Capcom only said that “Part of this process includes an assessment of whether the title will go into full production, and is based on a number of criteria with input from different sectors of the company. Unfortunately it was not felt that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project met the required criteria.”
In other words, “we canceled it because, uh, stuff.” Very informative, Capcom.
