Capcom Doesn't Hate Mega Man, Has PSN Sale to Prove It
It's no secret that gamers have been incredibly upset about the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3. GameZone's own Vito Gesualdi voiced his opinion on the matter, and suffice it to say, he was pretty damn upset about it. Capcom has spoken up about the canceled title, stating that it was something that needed to be done.
"The decision was not made lightly," stated Capcom's Christian Svensson in a recent interview. "Certainly, we knew there would be a lot of upset people and in spite of that, we still had to make that decision. That doesn't mean we don't care about you at all. I unfortunately can't get into the details of it, but it was not a decision that was made lightly, and I can tell you that no one is happy about that decision, but it was a decision that had to be made."
Svensson's statements regarding the canceled Mega Man Legends 3 seem pretty ambiguous. Unfortunately, that's all we have to go on at the moment. Regarding the future of Mega Man, Svensson said that it is still an important franchise for Capcom. "I wish I had something I could hold and display for you that that's the case, but I don't right now," he said. "But it's super, super important to us; I do want to express that."
To further show how important Mega Man is, Capcom has decided to put some games on sale on the PlayStation Network. Right now, you can score Mega Man, Mega Man 2, and Mega Man 3 for just $2.99. Additionally, you can download Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 for $4.99 each. If you're missing any of these titles, now would be the time to snag them. You might as well keep yourself busy while you wait for Capcom to announce something--anything!--related to the Mega Man series.
