(grump alert) Mega Man Legends III – Finally Upon Us?

No Need for Volnutt

PS1 cult classics Mega Man Legends, Mega Man Legends 2 and their spin-off The Misaventures of Tron Bonne may finally get a sequel if a mysterious trail of tweets, innuendo and seemingly unrelated news are anything to believe.

Developer Capcom, primarily Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune, has been teasing us with the promise of a Mega Man Legends III for a decade now, since MML2 ended on a cliffhanger back in the year 2000. So we’ve been going “Yeah, yeah, sure, Capcom” and brushing any promise off as cruel playful teasing. Yet these latest developments set the Nets ablaze with new hope, and as a fan of the Mega Man Legends world I feel like I need to stoke the flames.

This link here provides the initial burst of new-found promise:

Hideki Kamiya, former director to some of Capcom’s biggest games, knows something we don’t know about Mega Man Legends. In a series of back-and-forth Tweets, Kamiya is teasing fans of the series that they will pleased with something coming down the pike. The first tweet is as follows (UPDATE: a much more accurate translation provided by TMMN):

“Oh, finally, I was introduced to Capcom’s Kawano-san today, who was also the maker of Rockman DASH. But when I told him the wish to “make a sequel to DASH” from a certain person, he gave me some sort of grin… If it’s good it’s good I suppose… Goodnight.”

“Just wait and see.”

..and then, in a followup Tweet:

“If you’re Dash fan, you’ll be happy soon.”

and another, in response to the tweet, “Don’t toy with our hearts like that Kamiya-san!”:

“…you gotta believe Kawano san!”

Here’s two more Tweets of interest to keep you on edge. The first tweet is in response to “Kamiya-san Why must you toy with our emotions? We NEED Dash 3”, to which Kamiya said:

“All I can tell is just wait!”

and the second, a response to “No Dash 3 at all, huh?”

“Just wait and see.”
