Capcom recently put out a statement saying that they’ve cancelled development of Mega Man Legends 3 on the Nintendo 3DS, via their Website.
“Unfortunately it was not felt that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project met the required criteria, and it is with regret that we must announce that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project has been cancelled, meaning that Capcom will not be releasing the Prototype or the full game
“Additionally, updates of the Mega Man Legends Developer Room will cease as of today, though the North American Developer Room and its forums will remain open indefinitely.”
Capcom also said that there are no plans to reinitiate development or feature the prototype version on the eShop.
While Capcom says that Mega Man is a paramount series in their arsenal, this seems like telling times with their cancellation of Mega Man Universe. Who’s to say where the series will lead?
