[Update] Added a special video message from Mega Man Legends 3 Project executive producer, Keiji Inafune, below, as he talks about his enthusiasm for the new game. [End of Update]
After an absence of almost 10 years, Capcom has announced another Mega Man Legends game, this time for Nintendo’s upcoming handheld, the 3DS.
Entitled Mega Man Legends 3 Project, Capcom teases that fans of the franchise will have an opportunity to “be part of the development process like never before as they interact directly with the team!”
The publisher isn’t quite ready to reveal how that will happen, but says we’ll need to wait until Comic Con in New York to find out.
Executive Producer on Mega Man Legends 3 Project, Keiji Inafune, said of the game:
“We have wanted to create a new instalment in this series for a number of years, and it is great that we now have the opportunity to bring this title to the Nintendo 3DS.”
Much like the initial announcement of Mega Man Universe, there isn’t much more information on Legends 3 Project than this, but you can read a special message from the game’s director, Masakazu Eguchi, below:
MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3 PROJECT KICKS OFF!
Hi everyone! This is Masakazu Eguchi, director of MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3!
So, how about that Keiji Inafune special interview? Did you like that?
As you can see, Inafune is very enthusiastic about this project. And that new development style that he said he would go into more detail about later, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed by that. We think not only fans of the series, but anyone interested in Mega Man Legends will be like, “What? …OMG!!!”
When I and the rest of the staff first heard that were that we were doing this, we were shaking in our boots. All of us were asking our bosses, “Are you guys serious?”
But the proposition was interesting to say the least. So, now here we are making intense preparations and trying to stay on schedule.
…Having said that, there are so many details about the project that I am dying to tell all of you… but you’ll have to wait and let your imaginations run wild for just a little longer, until the Comic Con in New York next month!
Until then, I’ll use this blog to introduce to members of my team, and tell you a little about what’s going on here in the Dev Lab. I’ll do my best to update it at least once a week, so check back often!
I’m also looking forward to hearing comments from all of you!
