Mega Man Legends 3 (aka Rockman DASH 3 in Japan) is a cancelled action game that was in development by Capcom for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was announced in July 2010 and it was going to be created with the help of the fans, thanks to the MML3 Developer Room website:
Yes, the Developer Room, or as it’s more popularly known, the “Devroom” is a place where people interested in the upcoming Mega Man Legends 3 title for 3DS can convene to exchange ideas on the game’s development. We hold monthly Devroom events where members can submit their ideas for content, some of which will be selected by the game’s development team to actually be implemented in the game.
A playable Mega Man Legends 3 prototype was going to be released with the launch of the 3DS eShop download service, to let players to test the game and give even more feedbacks about how to develope it. Sadly, something went wrong and on the 18th july 2011, Mega Man Legends 3 was officially cancelled:
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.
The prototype was never released on the 3DS eShop, but we hope that in the future it could be at least leaked somehow.
I’m all for more videogames in the world and I enjoy most of the platforming-based Mega Man games, but MML1 is pretty pants nowadays. I have yet to try 2 but overall, I can’t be nearly as upset as some and I have a feeling that many of those who claim to be the most upset haven’t really spent any time with the series in recent years.
Reggie – you don’t even sound upset, so claiming you’re not as upset as some isn’t really adding anything to the (admittedly not-existent) conversation.
That being said, I for one, am still pretty upset about the cancellation, as both of the Legends games happen to be a among my favorite of all time. But hey, I hope the rest of you enjoy Call of Duty 7, Battlefield 16, and Street Fighter 4: Super Turbo Awesome Melee Edition.
BUT GUYS IF WE DO A PETITION IT WILL COME BACK BBBBBAAAAWWWW
It’s over guys, the game would have been crap anyways. Besides, Mega Man is not dead just because of a unfinished game.
It doesn’t look like crap from the screenshots. The shot of traffic looks like Grand Theft Auto!
This video essentially sums up how i felt about the whole thing. shame it had to go since it was coming out to be quite promising. Same thing with mega man universe
Awwwww this sucks!! I’m really looking foward in playing this game T_T
I don’t get fans like you. Why mock other the other fans that are fighting to get the game back? You should be mocking capcom or standing with your fellow gamer. Your “the game would have been crap anyway”statement sounds like sour grapes to me especially when Chris Hoffman praised the prototype and gave it an 8/10. Megaman legends 3 was supposed to Megaman return to the big time yet capcom killed it, mega man universe, and his appearance in marvel vs Capcom 3. Capcom has killed megaman the only reason they keep him around is merchandising.
The only thing we can do is hope for MML3 Prototype to get leaked… Would it count as signed code, since they were going to release it via the eShop? Also, I wanna march into the Capcom president’s office in Megaman Trigger armor and beat the shit out of him until he agrees to release a fully developed version of the game.
They have a facebook page for bringing back this game called 100,000 strong for mml3, You guys should join if you want the game back!
DIDN’T MEET THE CRITERIA?! F**K YOU CRAPCOM! GIVE US MEGAMAN LEGENDS THREE!
Wanna know what would be funny? If capcom did release this. But it was another Dynasty Warriors.
I don’t know why they cancelled this cool game.
Maybe because you were supposed to play as megaman most of the time.. instead they used barrett as a player… they would’ve called this game Barrett Legends 3, Because Megaman was supposed to start the plot of the game.
Why couldn’t Capcom just give the project to someone else?
Megaman seems to be dead…
Battlenetwork and Zero were the last good ones (Ryuusei was neat to say the least).
And now this…
Zero was awful. ZX was vastly superior.
Mega Man Legends 3 should be revived on PlayStation 1 so I can play it on my PlayStation 3 Mega Man Legends Shell be PlayStation and nothing else
