Is Mega Man Legends 3 going to get canceled?

9:40 AM on 07.09.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

That's the question a lot fans are asking. If you look at the history of the game's development thus far, it's easy to see why.

First the game was announced by Mega Man series co-creator Keiji Inafune, and that this was a project that he's been trying to get made for a while. Shortly after that, he left Capcom (which probably had something to with the cancellation of Capcom's other current Mega Man project, Mega Man Universe), putting the future of the Mega Man series on much shakier ground. After that, a prototype version of Mega Man Legends 3 was announced, set to launch alongside the 3DS eShop launch in June. Going by these videos, this prototype version of the game looked pretty much finished well before June, which makes it all the more worrisome that it still hasn't launched. Also worth noting is that Capcom claimed that Mega Man Legends 3 wouldn't be finished unless the Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype sold well. With the Prototype nowhere in sight, it's easy to think that the future of the full game is even more in question

Now the Mega Man Legends 3 tab has been removed from Capcom Japan's homepage, which is what happened shortly before Mega Man Universe was canceled. With Inafune gone, and the 3DS selling less than expected, is Capcom getting ready to ditch one of the 3DS's most promising titles?
