It seems unlikely they'll ever make it. ZXA didn't sell well enough in Japan; it went something like this:
Inti Creates: "ZX didn't do too good. If the next game doesn't sell more than 50,000 copies, that's probably it.."
and then ZXA sold below 40,000 copies in Japan (but 100,000 everywhere else)

Its the same thing as Star Force.

In America, Star Force crapped out in sales. Whereas ZX/ZXA were more popular and sold better.

In Japan, RnR was popular and sold well. ZX/ZXA did poorer and were less successful.

Except Star Force did well enough to manage to get 3 games out. ZX3 will probably remain a dream.

It depends on the taste of gamers in the world mainly. While Shooters and Platformers are popular here, Japan's gamers are more into Role Play and Fighters.

ZXA didin't sell well due to again, intrest and content, if I remember.
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

I don't know anymore. Cause nowadays, it seems like Capcom is really pushing for games for the American market. Maybe that doesn't apply to handhelds? Or just not to Mega Man?

Last time I checked with Seth and the Capcom-Unity crew, ZX3 was "to be determined."  'Course, that was a little over a year ago...

We can always dream cant we? Though it sold well everywhere else, Japan is the place where it gets made and all, though wouldnt it be great to just make it everywhere execpt Japan, get all those Japanese pissed and win the day? I would like better voice acting and that co-op mode they never put out.

I think Capcom's going to wait until they can make another successful Megaman platformer like MM9, or they're 100% sure that they can follow the MMX formula (just look at ZX1 Area D).

Hard-pressed to see a 4, though.

We could be playing ZX3 by now. We could have finished it by now. Multiple times.

It won't come anytime soon. And it sucks.

and what was wrong with ZXA's voice acting? I see many people complain on that, and it's too easy, please don't say Japanese voice acting was better 'unless you speak Japanese and UNDERSTAND what is said'.

My point is, we had Voice acting in Star Force 3 and yet people complained, we get Voice Acting in ZX Advent and we complain, it's totally impossible to please anyone it seems, Let's take a look at Grey's voice, I can't see anything terrible about it, I'll admitt Aile's voice wasn't what I expected, but to the point saying you'd rather no voice acting, that's seriously too much, I'm part of those people who enjoyed the voice acting, it at least showed that Capcom placed more budget into the game, so to confirm, ZXA's acting was okay. In a ZX3, I DO want Voice Acting, it takes us more into the game and it's enjoyable.

Megaman says otherwise. Certain games are made with the US market in mind. others not really. Megaman is one of those not reallys. Even if it sold out everywhere else in the world like theres no tomorow, if it sells bad in Japan, then they stop.

Yeah well L3 is also on hiatus. Been on hiatus for quite while. and Just look at Classic. 9 is like, what, 6 years after the last classic game?

I had the PAL version, it had no voice acting except for movement/combat yells, all of which was embarrassing. And I seriously doubt the JP voices were any better in that regard.
If they were adults (or voiced as such), it might sound better.

So they ended ZXA with a cliffhanger, and so they are not going to do a ZX3 to tell the story of how this cliffhanger ends?

Whatever. X_X

We'll get Legends 3 first before we get ZX3.

So basically never.

Vexan: A handful of voices in ZXA were pretty bad. I'd say Grey is one of the ones that most people lump into that category, especially once they learned he voiced the pussy X in X7. Model A might be the worst offender in my book, but I love to hate that thing. The list goes on, but your mileage may vary.

However, I too agree that having no voice acting at all is stupid. Having a subpar dub is better than having nothing at all. Though having a good dub, or just leaving the Japanese audio in, would be better. The latter won't happen again, but the former just depends on Capcom hiring a different studio. Why they didn't get Ocean to do it is beyond me. Lucas needs more work.

9 is like, what, 6 years after the last classic game?

Ten years.

The rerelease was. But it came out on the SFC in 98.

Same here. But I guess they have their hands full "Westernizing" every IP they have.

God I miss old school Japanese development. Actually, I guess I should say I miss creativity.

It is there, waiting for the right time...That's what I want to think.

But basically let's hope that the World Economy will be better. Also Capcom should exert more effort in promoting &  preserving traditional Rockman. I'm just wondering why there's no Rockman Animation that depicts the original timeline then so on. A 23 min show per week wouldn't hurt. >.>
