http://www.gameblurb.net/news/capcom-refused-to-let-keiji-inafune-to-complete-mega-man-legends-3/

I think news of this spread once before, but this is from the words of Inafune.

It pretty much proves that Capcom was already considering cancelling Mega Man Universe and Legends 3 the second Inafune resigned. Yet Capcom tried to continue development for both games anyways for months after, but ultimately failed on both projects.

Whether it was out of spite or from the loss of a needed guide, Capcom lacks the competence to keep Mega Man afloat.

It kind of makes sense that they had the Devroom opened up for as long as it did, probably hoping that the fans could compensate for the lack of Inafune. But since that obviously didn't happen, (and since they never told the Devroom members what the scoop was) they had to cancel it.

Why they would still leave him out of UMvC3 is still beyond me.

___EDIT___

This.

This was already known, true, but it's nice to get some words directly out of him to confirm the story further.

I find it a bit surprising that we're still getting new reports and fan efforts related to this. To be honest, I expected things to die down faster.

You underestimate the fanbase. think of how many people grew up on megaman, as you probably did. It's not the cancelling of Legends 3- that was the final straw. The recent crap being pulled with megaman in general is pissing fans off, and this was as much as the insanely lenient fanbase could take. That song gets it perfectly; these people are lamenting megaman, and legends 3 provides a focus for the sadness and rage.

Hope they get some better translations for the actual game release than what they've shown so far, but other than that... :)

Funny, I just came to speak of this. If that comes to the U.S., I'm getting it, regardless.
