Seeing Metto Man in 8 bit makes me think. I hope we can change the colors of our Mega Man. That would be great to have that option. If not, I get it. I just think the option would be fantastic.

What I hope for is that they have the interchangeable parts change color instead of having the original color, so that other parts on the body will match the others. :\

    * Mega Man X and Zero are possible playable characters. All characters in the game consist of four body parts, so it would be very easy to implement the two.

    * Despite the potential for X and Zero, there are no plans to support other Mega Man series gameplay aspects such as wall kicking, dashing or hovering.

    * Rush type items may be in the game; the exception to the no hovering rule.
    * Ryu and Arthur (Ghost n' Ghouls) are reconfirmed as being playable, each with their own unique weaponry (Arthurís lance, Ryuís hadouken).   

    * You can make your own bosses using a variety of body parts.
    * Capcom will be establishing some sort of algorithm in order to ensure customized stages are both playable and beatable.
    * Overheard by the author of the post, MMU may support the ability to put custom graphics into the game. The demo featured banners with the Comic-Con logo embedded into stage backgrounds.

    * Players will be able to vote on their favorite user created stages and bosses via a community interface. The best ones will be featured.
    * Capcom is striving to create a "Mega Man game that never gets old." This will be made possible by the imaginations of its players.

Looks like we will be able to make our own bosses and beat them as well, according to the info provided.

Looking at what date it is, I don't believe it for a second.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

Honoring the April Fools thing, I'd be amused if by canceled they mean the game as we know it is canceled and they show a new version that looks like less ass.

Realistically? That puppy got put down.

"Unfortunately, I have no new news to share on the project. It's not dead though... and it's changed a lot."

Yeah, I'd say so.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

Did you take a careful look at this boss contest?
Explain the explicit use of EXE2 Navis, then. I too should be asking you to look at the date.

It was just a random comment =/

...besides it's past 3 AM here and I've had to do all-nighters all week.

Still doesn't change the fact that your link is old though.

I was planning on doing that for an April Fools once. But then I realised that if the joke isn't actually a joke, which is the actual joke, then it could turn out really awkward.

But I've been thinking. What if they announced it as a joke just to gauge the fans' reactions to the fact that it's cancelled... You know, to watch sadly at how many people celebrate it =w=a

From what I've seen, its canning was met with much apathy.

>>People thinking the rest of the world give a [parasitic bomb] about april fools

Yeah, Japan doesn't really care,

DASH 3 will most likely get canned as well.

Neither game had any support from capcom at all, and now that Inafune is gone, they're both screwed.

Well, from day one that gameplay was shown of Universe, People complained...

Legends 3 was met with cheers worldwide though. If Capcom has ANY brains, they will know that pushing out an L3 will net them a nice sum of cash, considering how its one of the most wanted Capcom games ever.

If they DO can it though, then I WILL have to call Inafune out on not staying on board at *LEAST* until L3 was far enough into development that it was safe to say it couldnt be scrapped.

That's until Gold. Even if greenlighted, they can scrap it anytime until it's released.

PS: Today's news article should have been.

While great games, both Dash 1 and 2 had horrible sales. And most of the "fan demand" comes from a small fanbase.

I doubt capcom would care about any spare change DASH 3 would bringing win they have SF4/MvC3, Monster hunter, and all their actually successful franchises making cash.

A fanbase strong enough for DASH3 to be "the fans' game". Don't underestimate it.

Legends does have a rather loyal fanbase. But the vocal main muscle of that fanbase is located in japan. So, even if Legends 3 comes, there's no guarantee it will be localized.
Anyway, as I said in the other thread: Expect the worst, hope for the best.

As for Universe... I think it really is dead, is it?

Well if its dead, capcom will lose a lot of potential customers and fans and thus money.

Ugh, I guess it is true. I just can't believe it. I would really like to hear the exact reason(s), though. Cause I'm sure they're not canning it because the demo was slipshoddy. If it is because of Inafune's departure and/or the earthquake, I'd understand.

Same reason they'd cancel any project... Cutting their losses. That is, sales profits are expected to be less than money spent on development from now to probably time of finishing.
