It would be pretty accurate to say that Mega Man Legends 3 has been on shaky ground since the project was announced. Capcom has painted it to look like a game being made purely for the fans – a game that is dependent on hype, basically, to stay alive.
It looks like that trend will continue with the launch of a playable demo that will be released soon on the 3DS eShop. The so-called “Prototype Version” will literally determine the fate of the upcoming game. If a lot of people download it, they will probably eagerly continue production, but if it is a dud… well, into development hell it goes.
It looks like it is all on you, Mega Man fans. Check out the full announcement on the Capcom-Unity blog.
