Inafune tried to save Mega Man Legends 3
In the midst of all of these Tokyo Game Show stories, the now cancelled/controversial Capcom title Mega Man Legends 3 is once again making headlines, thanks to Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune’s interview with Japanese gaming site 4gamer.net. And thanks to a translation done by someone over on the 100,000 Strong for Mega Man Legends 3 Facebook page, we can now learn a little bit more about the cancellation and how Inafune tried to save the project.
He told 4gamer that even though he was planning to leave Capcom during the game’s early development stages, he was willing to make a compromise with the company.
"I stated that I was ready to make a contract with them so that I could keep working on those projects that I started (including Mega Man Legends 3). I couldn't start making contracts with other publishers for sure if Capcom agreed to the proposition, but I wanted to see those projects that I started to completion. But it couldn't be done. They answered, 'we have no need to do that.'"
He said he didn’t want to quit during the development of Mega Man Legends 3 (and the other projects he was working on at the time) but he just couldn’t take working at Capcom any longer.
Maybe Inafune’s involvement was the reason why MML3 was put into development. Maybe his departure was why it ultimate failed to get off the ground. But with this new information in mind, could Inafune truly have saved the project if Capcom had allowed him to work with his team from outside of the company? What do you think g1s?
They're already doing that. The recent MM games (as far as I know Zero and MM9 and 10) were developed by Inti Creates.
it all comes down to costs
Well. Best not get duped by Capcom.
For SFXT I might do that, but at the same time it looks great on its own so i will probably grab it, but i will pass on SSFXT and USSFXT, I might grab MUUSSFXT though
well... i'm still alive in your heart ^^ but not for crapcom -_-
yup for sure... i'm pretty sure they are going to do like DMC leave it to another studio to devellop megaman games -_- wait and see...
megaman franchise at least
So.... the Blue Bomber is...Dead?
I remember a time when Capcom used to be cool. What happened?
Wait, Inafune couldn't stand working at Capcom anymore. Why are they get so bad?
You know you could always wait a couple of months before picking the game up at a cheaper price somewhere, right?
Really, they held MML3 at gun point, so why don't we, as fans, hold THEM at Gun point for pissing us off and disrepecting the man who made them what they are now?
I call Bull Shit on Capcom even more,not even Square does this nonesense. Sure Nobuo Uematsu isn't apart of the company no more but Nobuo does work with Square Enix every now and then for music. First Capcom held Legends 3 at gunpoint with if people want Legends 3 buy the Prototype if not the project is cancelled/we didn't have the criteria to continue to "It's the fans fault" It's been made clear for a decade Capcom didn't want Legends 3 to be made due to various times Inafune wanted the title to be made but everytime said no,this further proves it.
What if Capcom removed Tron and Zero from the roster in UMVC3..I wonder what kind of speculation that would cause even more if that were to happen ya know?
even if capcom restarts mml3, i dont think i could trust anything they do or say for a long time
yeah, Inafune should be controlling Capcom from the top.
This will come as a bit harsh, but what a freakin bunch of jackasses. "We have no need to do that?" Inafune is one of the brains that put this friggin company on the map, talk about a lack of respect for such a great man for the gaming industry. Capcom sickens me more every freakin day.
Yea capcom has been pissing me off as well, what happen to breath of fire series. konami almost pushed me over when they said they were disbanding genso suikoden team, then I found out they are making suikoden for psp, still these companies killing off good game franchises sucks ass.
