Leak Sauce #7 Mega Man Legends 3 Project



Leaking info to you and bringing the discussion.

There's something that Mega Man Volnutt and I share. We've both been gone for awhile. I've been away for over two weeks and Mega has been out for over a decade. I can't even imagine what Keiji Inafune had to do to make sure this game got the green light. I imagine it involved lots of blood and sacrifices. I'm talking about goats.

So here's what's up: It's official. The trilogy can finally come to a close and I can give Inafune copious amounts of bear hugs if I get his permission. The reason it's called a "Project" is that Inafune is doing something very interesting this time around: letting the fans submit ideas and vote on several aspects of the game. This is probably the largest involvement of a fan community in any single production of a video game to this day.

The game itself will eventually come out for the 3DS but the project is starting with baby steps for now. Inafune knows that the last game wasn't exactly a financial success. He's hoping that as a community, we can pitch in and make the greatest game possible and change the outcome this time. Let's prove Inafune right, save Christmas, and prevent World War 3 all in one go!

I've given the summary version. You can watch the full video panel over here:

This is Kylak signing out and peer pressuring you to go vote.

  1. I'm new to the gaming world, but even I have heard of Mega Man. This is going to be very cool and I can't believe that they are actually going to let the fans be involved in the project. This will be epic!

  4. God, I've only played the first and Legends was definitely the one megaman title that deserved over 4 titles. The original, X, Battlenetwork, Zero, and Starforce(I don't include ZX because it had the same amount of titles as Legends.) all got more games and all were less deserving of such, in my opinion of course. I'm not saying I don't love those games because, to be honest, there isn't a megaman game that I don't love.

    If you can't tell, I'm even more excited about Legends 3 and the 3DS now.

    If it wasn't for silly things like distance, I would let you borrow my copy of Mega Man Legends 2. I agree with you in full: Legends deserves more titles. If Legends 3 does well enough, we might just see that happen.

  6. Yeah, that will hopefully happen. Every day I find yet another reason to get a 3DS and yet another reason to start putting money away for it and games.
