I didn't find out about the Mega Mega Legends 3 video game being in development for the Nintendo 3DS until writing my June 6, 2011, blog post about my top three favorite games. I also didn't find out about the game's development website (www.capcom-unity.com/devroom) until after the game was canceled. So if lack of participation in the development website was a factor in canceling the game, it seems to me that the video game company Capcom didn't do a sufficient job letting the public know about it in the first place.

Even if work on the third game is not resumed, a package of the first two games would garner more fans and may spur more interest in a third title. It also would interest new fans in other Mega Man games (as was the case with me when I was younger).
Mega Man Legends was the first Mega Man game I bought. I picked up a free pamphlet of the game coming out (or already out -- I can't remember) at my local EB Games store. I liked what I saw and bought the game. It became my favorite game almost instantly. Then I told my friends at school about it, and they also bought copies. I even found the Rockman Dash Original Soundtrack CD and bought that as well, playing it constantly. We had a joke back then that I was using the "Apple Market" song, which I called "the town music," as a mind-control technique.
It goes without saying that I bought the other games, including Mega Man 64 (which is a rerelease of the first Mega Man Legends game). I then bought other Mega Man games, in which before Mega Man Legends, I had no interest in them. My point is that if Mega Man Legends 3 is finished and sold, it may start a chain reaction, and it likely will produce lots of sales for Capcom -- not just from the Mega Man Legends series.
I hope that the Mega Man Legends 3 project will be resumed. Do you know of any other games in development that you were interested in but were canceled?
