Aren't you glad they got the fans so deeply involved in the project?

    Alright Capcom, this is it, you either give us an announcement of a continuation of one of your old game series, or it's over between us. It's not me, it's you. You played with my heart only to tell me it wasn't real. Just know that I WILL have my revenge, somehow.

    This is really a load of crap. I think it would probably have sold pretty damn well too. Especially considering that the 3DS isn't exactly oozing with great games.

    I saw this happening the day Keiji Inafune renounced Capcom. When a pillar of experience and creative with a IP is gone it needs to be replaced by a equally brilliant developer and even if that happens the project will be become directionless for a while and that's where the projects takes a huge painful hit. When Megaman Universe collapsed my optimism for ML3 faded.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    LordKaiser nicely sums up my thoughts.

    Also, why can't we have nice things? :(

    Given that the majority of fan/user generated content is terrible, I honestly had little expectations that the fans would be doing much more than just simply answering a number of multiple choice polls for the game, which at best is superficial involvement. There's no way they'd be able to fully crowd source the entire design of the game.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    The internet is going to explode over this. Let's set up some lawn chairs and watch the fireworks.

    On a more serious note, this is disappointing. Game looked like it had potential.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...

    I agree. This does not reflect well on the state of the AAA games industry in terms of creativity and risk taking. Japan in particular.

    I can't blame Capcom for this. The 3DS hasn't taken off as many had expected it to.

    This isn't the only high profile 3DS title to be cancelled ...

    Well that's incredibly sad. I wasn't really looking forward to this game, not have played any of the other Mega Man Legend titles, but it was looking interesting.

    I'd like to see the chosen Dark Souls shield design and the runners up. Is it available at a website somewhere? There was a contest recently where fans were tasked with designing a shield for Dark Souls. The person with the winning design would have their design in the game and receive a free copy.

    I could see the Megaman fan-generated stuff being really terrible though. Is there a place I can look at it though? Was it really terrible?

    And I still keep asking, "compared to what?". The original DS was a very slow burn and didn't hit it's stride until at least a year after release when we saw several breakout titles for the game: Canvas Curse, Meteos, Mario Kart DS. I don't think the PSP was exactly a barn-burner the first year either.
    What other game (or games) was cancelled?

    I believe it was outed that the Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy game was cancelled with a lot of the concepts being rolled into Revelations. I don't think it was that far in development since the only acknowledgement the project existed was the logo used at the 3DS unveiling last year.

    I was speaking more in general, although if you want to dig up some old Nintendo Power issues, I know they ran an article with a bunch of fan submitted designs for Mega Man 6. The series does have a strong tradition of some community submitted designs making their way into the games though.

    From what I remember, nearly all of the Navis used by Mr. Famous in the Battle Network series are fan designs.

    True, but it's funny how the PR says this has nothing to do with Inafume's departure, despite Mega Man Universe also being cancelled shortly after he left.

    But it's ok, I'm sure they'll be glad to churn out more Star Force for everyone's enjoyment!

    One of the games, perhaps 4, was almost entirely fan designed bosses. However, 4 was also an abomination of game design. The ability to brick the cartridge is amusing though.

    I think the whole Mega Man IP is in trouble. I think Capcom will kill many of it's IPs and I'm not Optimistic of DmC either.

    As Shoptroll mentioned: Assassin's Creed - and also Saint's Row.

    Saint's Row.

    To be fair, that title was also slated for the PSN and XBLA. Those versions were axed before the 3DS iteration was killed. My guess is that they figured the game wouldn't sell well on any platform, or they wanted to direct resources to SR: The Third.

    great I wanted to play this. Now I'll have to ask what's the difference between the N64 carts and the PS1 disks?(the N64 versions are much cheaper!)

    Get the PS1 version of Legends. I don't think there was a N64 release of Legends 2.

    http://www.mmhp.net/GameHints/MML1.html has details on the differences.

    There was also PSP ports I think?

    Wait...huh? It's a cancelled sequel to a high-profile franchise. Sad though it is to get cancelled, I'm not sure if that says much about risk-taking and creativity if we're using a sequel as our standard.
    A friend of mine even said he wanted people to boycott Capcom for canceling it. I don't know if people want to go to that extreme.

    I'll be "boycotting" them only because they've cancelled or refused to localize their only titles I actually want to play. It looks like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is going to be it for me for awhile.

    That's my point. If they're axing a sequel, which for all intents and purposes is a very safe bet (although it's a sequel to a decade old sub-franchise), that's a clear sign the level of risk-aversion is reaching a new high. It's possible there's other reasons but still, this isn't good.
    It looks like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is going to be it for me for awhile.

    Or the new edition of MvC3 which is probably getting announced this week :p

    I really don't get the call to arms for gaming boycotts. Companies know by now that we're like crack addicts and we can't hold out when release day comes. The Modern Warfare 2 and L4D2 boycotts are classic examples.

    -Mega Man Legends 3 getting canceled.
    -Mega Man Universe cancelled.
    -Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (Same game, updated twice)
    -Marvel vs. Capcom 3 unsupported
    -Possible "Super" Marvel vs. Capcom 3

    I am getting a bit annoyed with Capcom. I honestly don't know what to say or do, right now.
