"So, I told them that I was going to found my own independent company and leave Capcom. However, I stated that I was ready to make a contract with them so that I could keep working on those projects that I started. I couldnít start making contracts with other publishers for sure if Capcom agreed to the proposition, but I wanted to see those projects that I started to completion. But it couldnít be done. They answered, ĎWe have no need to do that.í"

"[I went to the trouble of]ÖFinding the right time, gathering the team members, planning strategies, all so we could barely start on Mega Man Legends 3. I really donít want to quit at this crucial momentÖbut I canít keep going at Capcom. I am too tired to keep going. I wanted to leave Capcom to recharge my energy, and support Capcom from there, but it seems they donít allow it. I want to make all my effort to keep Legends 3 alive, but Iím really not sure I can do it."

Poor Inafune. He really has a lot of love for Capcom, but like most large corporations, in the end all he will ever be is another number. Now he is even less to them.

Wasn't his love for Western developers/games the reason why Capcom went to shit in the first place?

it actually kind of seems like he asked this before he went public with the announcement.

They didn't refuse to let him work on it, they refused to farm out the game to his indipendemt studio, which he supposedly started because he wanted to get away from Capcom.

So Capcom wanted to can the game. He wanted to continue developing it in a new independent studio. Why would Capcom allow that? That would mean Capcom would still need to invest in the game they saw no future in.

I would only blame Capcom on this if Inafune offered them to fund the project himself.

According to Inafune.

Well that certainly wasn't a formal offer, and if it has happened, it's not something we'd hear about any time soon, if at all.

I don't, they had a prototype ready to go on a content starved platform for only $2

The protoype was fun and had 3 or so hours of gameplay according to some of the people that got to play it.

Capcom just sucks.

Funny, that describes the modern Inafune fairly well, with his attempt to cater to the west to gain better sales, and releasing a bunch of shit as a result.

Pretty much this. Evident in many other industries as well.

Reminder:

How far along was Legends 3? Was it only a couple of levels, or was this almost complete?

Clearly the final game had a long ways to go (I think the Devroom indicator had the game listed at about 25% complete), but the Prototype Version seemed ready to go.

Some say that the project had very little chance even from the start, others think that the results of the DevRoom project, specifically the small number of registered members might have been the main reason for cancellation. I understand that you don't have any concrete information on this but I'm sure everyone would be interested in your opinion.


I donít want to speculate on that, but the thing I find strange is that the Prototype Version was, for all intents and purposes, finished, but not released. If it were up to me, I would have wanted to make it available to at least get some sort of return on the investment that had been made so far, and to allow the contributors to see their creations come to life, and to judge what consumer interest was in the project as a whole. Then again, maybe it would have been even more heartbreaking to get the Prototype Version but not a full game.

God bless you Inafune. I feel sorry for the devs that are still with Capcom who want to work on MML3 but the higher ups wont let them. Devs want it, fans want it, but a small number of higher ups don't.
