Mega Man Legends 3 Project Officially Canceled

The title was slated to have a prototype released on the 3DS eShop, but this, too, has been canceled.

Capcom has used its Mega Man Legends 3 Project Developer's Room to announce Mega Man Legends 3 Project has been fully canceled. In a note left to the community Capcom created for assistance in choosing some ideas for the planned title, Capcom revealed that various sectors within the company didn't feel as though the title was of high enough quality to enter into full production, so Capcom's response was to cancel the game.

The blog also has a few questions and answers about the circumstances of the cancellation and what will happen to the Mega Man franchise in the future, but they are not very specific.

I'm a little disappointed at Capcom for not getting into real specifics about the reasons why this was cancelled. The prototype version was slated for release back at the launch of the eShop, and for a while, it was mysteriously pushed back. Likely, that demo/game/whatever it was meant to be was completed, so for Capcom to fore go launching at least that, it must mean it was low quality and would hurt their brand, would confuse consumers, or perhaps someone high up at Capcom just doesn't like the Legends franchise.

It's hard to say, but I really don't respect this decision from the information presented to us, and I think given the Q & A found on the blog, Capcom doesn't expect many of the game's early followers to respect it much, either.

That's a shame.

So, I took a guess as to why Capcom canceled the game on the latest PB & Jason, and apparently Capcom Europe's twitter suggests I was right: Capcom is claiming there wasn't enough fan support for the game, because few people used the Devroom.

So, there's your answer. If you want a Capcom game from here on out, you better join their own custom social network, and participate in whatever activities they create for it. This is your fault, everyone ever except Capcom!

Super Hang-On Review Rewind

When I was a wee lad in the arcades, motorcycle racers were not often a priority for me to spend my quarters. I was too busy playing After Burner, Galaga, or Ms. Pac-Man. But one day, I saw something that stood out from the usual bunch- Sega’s Super Hang-On, initially released in 1987. As I hopped on the mechanical bike and blasted around that first corner, I knew it was worth every quarter spent. I was one with the road- until I crashed seconds later. While I never won the race or played it in the arcade again, I always remembered how much fun it was. Thankfully, most of the traits that made the coin-op version fun translated well on the Sega Genesis.
