After Keiji Inafune finally got his wish and began development of a new Mega Man Legends
game ... he left Capcom
. The remaining team members collectively issued a statement through Capcom-Unity
to let us know that the 3DS Mega Man Legends 3 Project
continues unabated. "We have been reading all of your comments from the past few days, many of them expressions of anxiety and many of encouragement," reads the open letter. "Honestly, though many of us are still a little dazed and confused about all of this, the 'can-do' fire inside us is still burning as hot as ever!"
The team also promised to reveal info soon about upgrades to the Devroom community, through which fans help decide design decisions (like the new character design
). You can find the full statement after the break. And though it's not explicitly mentioned, we can assure you that Capcom will also continue making Mega Man
games in other series. All the time. Forever.
