This is Mega's final design for Mega Man Legends 3

With all the E3 hullabaloo last week, I totally missed that the Mega Man Legends 3 devs had settled on a final design for our boy in blue! It's good to know that even though the game's future is still a mystery (What? No playable Prototype Version on the show floor?), development is still barreling along. Reminds me of how Mega Man 2 was but a pet project following the lukewarm response to the original, barely allowed by the Capcom heads. And we all know how that story turned out!

Charged with renewed optimism, let's take a gander at Mega's suit. As you may recall, the last round of revisions featured a detailed armor design and a more human design. I was really rooting for the "sans manties" look, but the detailed suit took the crown in both Japan and the US. Art director Yuji Ishihara then took the winner and tweaked it a bit further to get what we have here.

Compared to before, Mega's armor plating has been beefed up a bit and he's been given an overall height boost. Also, the backpack will be able to display health and status effects, Dead Space-style! Although, why the angry eyes, Rock? Been hanging out with Kirby much?

What do you think of this design? Love it? Hate it? Indifferent?
