Mega Man Legends 3 didn't happen. We all know that, and for some the fact that the game never saw the light of day remains a sore point. You might assume that the chances of Legends 3 ever being produced are slim to none, but Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune has revealed that he would jump at the opportunity to finish off the project.
Speaking to US Gamer, former Capcom staffer Inafune said:
If somebody asked, even right now, what's the game you want to create most? It's still Legends 3. I put so much effort into that game, so much passion into that game, but it didn't happen. It's always a regret in my mind. Even now…
We all know that's not going to happen, though, as long as Capcom holds the IP. But if they asked me to make that game, I could still gather most of the original team, even right now. Some of them have quit Capcom, some of them are still at Capcom, but I believe that team would be passionate enough to come back together and create that game. So…we'll see what's going to happen. You never know.
Let's say that, if we have all seven Dragon Balls right here, right now, and Shen Long comes up and says, 'What's your wish?' My wish would be, give me all the right tools, people, and environment to create Legends 3.
Inafune is of course working on Mighty No.9 and Azure Striker Gunvolt at the moment, but it's not beyond the realms of possibility that he and Capcom could come to some agreement. Would you still be keen to play Legends 3 if it did somehow find its way to market? Or has the entire saga left a bad taste in your mouth? Let us know by posting a comment.
