100,000 Strong


I know this is irrelevant to the normal point of this blog, but this is important to me. On July 18th, Capcom canceled the upcoming Mega Man Legends 3 Project, which was to finally bring about a sequel to the now 10 year old cliffhanger ending of Legends 2. This was one of the sole reasons I wanted a Nintendo 3DS.
It was a unified vision by both Capcom and the fans working together to realize this goal, interacting within a blog/forum environment known as the DevRoom. There, contests would be ran for fans to design enemies, characters, vote on designs from the main staff, etc. The plan was to release a Prototype Version to be playable from this info, and from that would shape the rest of the game.
No such luck. The Proto.Ver. was never launched, and fans are given a notice of cancellation stating "We weren't meeting our goals with the project." These fans that were united to help Capcom are now given the cold shoulder. Those fans aren't remaining quiet.

100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3

This is a group rallying to Capcom, demanding the project's reinitialization. They're roughly 5% at their goal and need your help. All you have to do to take part is Like their facebook page.
This is something I'm passionate about, as I loved the original titles, and this cancellation hit me harder than being fired from a job probably would. I encourage all of you that are against this sort of injustice to help our cause.

Legends Never Die.

So it's like Operation Rainfall where people want Nintendo of America to bring some good RPG over to america.

@Tom
Kind of, but this is much more international. #DASH3 (For "Rockman DASH 3") was Twitter Japan's #1 trending topic yesterday. Needless to say, no one's happy about this.

Well, whether it's about across-the-board retcons (DC, I think), cancellations (this), or newcomers to the family (Gundam AGE), no one usually ever is.

Honestly, this isn't my fight, so I can't really comment more. But I wish you luck on this endeavor.
