With fans still wondering why Capcom cancelled the fan-based Mega Man Legends 3 project and prototype, Capcom Europe has an answer: lack of an audience.
Responding to one user via the Capcom Europe Twitter, the company commented:
it’s a shame the fans didn’t want to get more involved :( if we saw there was an audience for MML3 people might change minds
Yes, you read that correctly.
Holy shit are you serious? Lack of an audience? You fuckers want a game developed by fans and you half assedly promote it. Fans DESIGNED half the shit you were going to put in the game. Some of us do not have artistic skill for that, yet we voted. We had to choose a new heroine out of a group and imagine when we get that pink haired cowgirl. It was apparent you didn’t want to develop this game. You just wanted more sales and because we didn’t eat, breathe, sleep this thing, you cut us off? How selfish of you. We waited for years. We held our breaths and crossed our fingers and you have the audacity to blame us? Us? Who have been patient and loyal to your company?
Oh, man. Shame on us. I mean, what were we thinking, actually believing you would deliver this game we waited forever for.
Oh there we go. Well, I already traded in MvC because that game lacked, well, expansive characters. Fighting games and shooting games, yea, we need more of those. Vector Sigma. Why?
Capcom has its hands full with Asura’s Wrath, Capcom x Tekken and DMC5. But seriously, you use Legends as a ploy for us to buy a 3DS? How low. I wouldn’t look in Capcom’s general direction at Comic Con to begin with, much less waste perfectly good tomatoes on them.
This should have been clear as day to all of us, but it somehow slipped by us.
>Inafune leaves >Mega Man Universe gets canceled >Mega Man is NO WHERE to be found in Marvel vs Capcom 3 >Too lazy to develop Mega Man Legends 3, so gets fans to create and vote shit >MML3 is promised if we pay for a demo >MML3 is canceled
Capcom really has no fucking idea what they’re doing. They’ve become Konami, who’s focusing solely on Metal Gear and Silent Hill. Capcom’s only focusing on Resident Evil and Street Fighter. Whatever other franchises they have, they either ignore or destroy.
Now look at Sega. The once mighty company that became a joke after going 3rd party has been doing its best to release games for all of its franchises, new and old. The day you get outdone by Sega is the day you’re no longer worthy being loved.
I had the utmost faith in Capcom. Thankfully, I haven’t even bought a 3DS yet. With all the rage emanating from the internet, folks are boycotting Capcom and have found solace in pirating games from them as retaliation for cancelling MML3.
If any of my followers could promote my blog, that would be swell. I’d like to get as many followers as possible. Feel free to ask questions, submit artwork (unless it’s been submitted before) or tell us why you love Mega Man and which game was your favorite!
