This has to be one of the biggest trolls ever in the history of gaming. There were literally thousands of pieces of artwork submitted by fans for the events, post after post detailing how the prototype would be the determining decider, but we didn't even get that. This is so abrupt and cold it's as hilarious as it is fucking depressing. A big wet dump on fans that waited 10 years for this. I would have rather they never announced this game and just plain said that they will never pursue development on the Legends series again.
Sigh. Why couldn't the 3DS sell like crack covered candy. Why.
I'm not surprised. I've never seen a company have it out for a game before actual production and given how they were looking for any reason to not do it, I don't know why they bothered teasing in the first place.
They should have at least released the demo or release it now for all the fans to mess around with. It'd be a great and sad send off to play around in a game world that will never be fully realized. For 2 bucks or so I'd get it.
