New York Comic Con has come and gone, and you wouldn't think that there would be that much video game news from what many believe to be the "lesser Con" but you'd be wrong. Sure, we all expected Capcom to announce some new characters from Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and we weren't disappointed there, but if you've been following the resurrection of the Mega Man Legends series then you were ready for some more news on the upcoming title Mega Man Legends 3.
Capcom (being the kind and generous souls they are) revealed a little bit about the game but more importantly, they revealed a brand new way for fans to interact directly with Inafune and the development team behind Mega Man Legends 3. When Inafune was asked why "Project" has been tagged on the end of the Mega Man Legends 3 logo, he stated that he will be turning to the fans this time around as a sort of collaborative project. The Capcom-Unity website will soon be updated with an area called a "Dev Room" and this is where all the Mega Magic will happen, according to Inafune.
Players will be able to submit suggestions, gameplay ideas, boss requests and even offer their services as a voice actor to the "Dev Room". The first task given to the Mega Man Legends fan base will be to select who the new main female protagonist will be, but it's not as easy as you may think. Nine different artists, including Inafune, have created nine different characters for fans to choose from; whoever wins the vote will appear in the final game alongside Mega Man. All you have to do is keep your eyes peeled to the dev room so you can help shape Mega Man Legends 3 into the game you've always wanted it to be.
I bet some all of you were hoping for a gameplay trailer or at least some screens, but if you couldn't already tell, the game is not very far into development. Luckily for us, Capcom was able to scrape up some early development shots in an extremely quick "trailer." You can check it out below.
The trailer confirms that the infamous Servbot will make a reappearance, but we could have guessed that. What really looks awesome is that clearly evil machine thing and that decently sized area. It's certainly not much to go on at the moment, but at least we'll have the dev room to help keep us moderately satisfied for the time being. Capcom should take as much time as it needs to in order to make this game the absolute best it can be. Fans have waited roughly a decade for Mega Man Legends 3, so they'll be able to wait a little while longer to ensure that it lives up to the hype.
Mega Man Legends 3 is currently set to hit the 3DS. Keep checking Game Rant for any and all news regarding Capcom and the future of Mega Man.
