Fans knock sense into Capcom

On Monday, Capcom canceled Mega Man Legends 3. The fans were, unsurprisingly, not very happy about the situation. Announcing a game that’s been requested for a decade, having fans take part in its development, and then canceling it ten months later has the potential to make supporters upset. Now, with the title canned, the fans have come together to bring it back.

We have two campaigns running — one for English audiences and the other for Japanese.

The English campaign, ‘Get Me Off the Moon,’ is being pushed on Facebook, aiming for 100,000 likes, and is already boasting an impressive 22,000. You can show your support here.

The Japanese campaign, ‘One More DASH,’ (Mega Man Legends is known as Rockman DASH in Japan) is primarily based on Twitter, but they have a website up with information on the game and its cancellation. Visit their site here. Follow them on Twitter here.

Alternatively, a thread on Capcom’s official forum is petitioning to let CyberConnect 2, developer of Asura’s Wrath, Naruto, and .hack, develop the game. Asked by Siliconera which series he’d like to develop, CC2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama said “it would be Mega Man Legends 3.”

    Please just don’t have it 3DS exclusive. It doesn’t make sense. Everyone plays Megaman.

    I hope all these campaigns end with the creation of the game. I dont care what system its on, as long as they get Trigger off of Elysium, its why I HATE Cliffhanger endings.

    Though me being pessimistic I’ve signed up for just about all the Legends 3 campaigns but I dont know if any of these will work considering Capcom ignored Megaman’s top ranking in the MvsC 3 character polls.

    There you go Sal!!

    Good stuff, I can’t believe I forgot to let you guys know about the campaigns!!

    EVERYONE who visits Gematsu frequently, PLEASE spread the word and help us reach our goal! While it may not even impact Capcom, it’s worth a try!! We can’t give up without a fight, we’ve waited a decade for this game!

    Thank you Gematsu and Sal.

      @Kkdog4Sado: Don’t mention it. This was supposed to be one of my main reasons for picking up a 3DS.

      @Kkdog4Sado: you have my support!

  • DarthXehanort

    Good luck! Capcom is an abysmal publisher.

    My focus is still Operation Rainfall.

    At least this will show Capcom Mega Man isn’t dead to the fans!
