MegaMan Universe Canceled!
« on: March 31, 2011, 11:38:37 AM »
I was so looking forward to this game....  :'(

What's funny is Capcom was at PAX and I asked them about MMU and he said they couldn't tell me anything but when I asked him if it was being canned he said he really couldn't talk about it. As soon as I found PB later on I told him what happened and that I was afraid it was getting canceled. I hate when I'm right.

I hope this is an April Fools "joke". I mean, this can't be just a coincidence...right?

It's the 31st in Japan right now.

Well with the lack of updates and lots of rather mixed opinions about the game =\ Sad, it could've be so much :<

Wouldn't Xenoblade getting announced in the EU be a good thing? I can't see whats wrong with that unless its ONLY in the EU/JP.

But yeah, didn't really see this coming. Shame, looked fun too.

BUT...

At least Capcom isn't trying to rush the game to release so they can get it out there despite being incomplete, it seems like they weren't really doing much with it, so I can't say its a surprise really.

Lets hope Legends 3 gets greenlit soon then.

As long as Legends 3 is still on path, I'm not that upset.

Something about this happening with Inafune gone doesnt surprise me.

It's sad to see it canceled, I really liked that alternative design. I wouldn't worry about DASH3, though. I think it's too late now to suddenly cancel it. Way too many resources went into promotion and whatnot.

I dunno... they had a few trailers made already for MMU.

Trailers don't make you immune to cancellation, sadly.

Neither do playable demos, which MMU obtained long before and L3 has barely reached.

Nevertheless, my thoughts kinda mirror PB's.  Legends 3 is my concern.  And hell, I know I'm not alone in being more excited about that Korean PC game than Universe.  I played MMU at NY ComicCon, was fun, but realistically the only way I'd play the release version is by hogging my brother's TV during visits.

I could talk about the art style, which I don't care about THAT much, or the controls, which one expects to be touched up before release.  But really?  I think my indifference comes from this game being so heavily based around 2.  I got enough of that in 9, and I'm really getting tired of Classic-series games that do not allow you to slide.

That said, it's always sad to see a MegaMan game get cancelled, and Universe really surprised me at that, since it did seem to have come pretty far along.  At the very least they had well surpassed Power Up in the "Classic reimagining" department.  Feels like a waste to me.

L3 will probably also get canceled.
Of course, you all shouldn't give hope after being teased years about it.

I can't wait for all the reactions if it does.

Not that many people care about Legends, I would say a prick on the internet's arm.
Or maybe a small cut by a boxcutter.

You'd be surprised. legends is the megaman franchises DNF. always teased with legends character cameos, but never given an actual 3. Even folks who didnt grow up with the original 2 are hyped for it.
