In the early days of the 3DS few projects caused as much disappointment among dedicated fans as Mega Man Legends 3. Originally announced as an innovative collaboration between fans and developers - a fresh idea at the time - it gradually unravelled.

Following the departure of Keiji Inafune from Capcom, the game began to go through a period of uncertainty and adjustments, with a 'Prototype' version emerging as a compromise after apparent issues in gaining the support of Capcom's senior management.

It's a messy history, and video maker 'Skybane' has been in touch to highlight a detailed documentary that he's put together with a team of fellow enthusiasts. It's a slick and detailed look at the history of the project and what went wrong.

The failure of the Legends 3 project, and the absence of new Mega Man games for quite some time, have contributed to plenty of bad feeling between Blue Bomber fans and Capcom. Here's hoping the franchise has a comeback planned beyond a rather divisive upcoming TV show.
