Why Nintendo needs to make Mega Man Legends 3

TheArabGamer
It’s been more than 2 years yet Mega Man fans still want to play the next chapter in the Mega Man Legend series. But why Legends? Unlike most Mega Man games, Legends series revolves around exploration and discovery. It was the first 3D Mega Man and with it came lots of interesting ideas like exploring dungeons, finding parts, collecting items, building weapons, and so forth. It was unique, charming, and sadly didn't get the ending it deserved. After so much time you’d think people would give up but no, we and (100,000+ fans) still want it and can’t wait to see what happens to Mega Man Volnutt and company.

Recently Nintendo announced that they will be teaming up with Capcom on a secret project which they will announce soon. Chances are this project is related to Monster Hunter but I’d like to imagine that it could be something more. Hopefully Mega Man Legends 3. In this article I'd like to share with all why Nintendo should make Mega Man Legends 3 and why that would be a good thing for both Mega Man and the big N.

Nintendo are the masters of 3D games

Mega Man Legends was great but we all admit that it had some serious control issues (mainly thanks to the PSone’s D-Pad). Mega Man Legends 2 improved the controls but there was still something off, something missing from it feeling perfect. On the other side of the fence, Nintendo was gracefully entertaining players around the world with amazing 3D titles like Legend of Zelda and Mario 64. Mega Man Legends did eventually arrive on the N64 but it was kind of a messy port. In the end we can all agree that Nintendo know what they’re doing when dealing with 3D games. After all these were the same guys who standardized the lock-on targeting system found in Mega Man Legends.

I always imagined Mega Man Legends as a Zelda game with guns. If Nintendo were to make Mega Man legends 3 a reality we can expect a whole new control system that would work better. Mega Man would move around the world freely rather than sticking to a third person shooting angle. Weapons, enemies, and boss fights would also feel more interesting as Nintendo proved it multiple times with their Zelda franchise.

Perfected cel shading

Wind Waker was the first actual cel shaded game from Nintendo and even till today it stands out as one of the most beautiful games ever made. While the MML3 prototype footage was still rough around the edges, the game clearly was going for a cel shading technique similar to Wind Waker.

Skip to around 1:30 for gameplay footage*

Nintendo have gained a lot of experience from that game and if they were to apply to Legends 3 we would get a Mega Man game that would really stand out visually.

Nintendo needs the variety
why-nintendo-needs-to-make-mega-man-legends-3
Let’s face the facts. While the 3DS has been getting a lot of praise the games on the system are mostly tied to Mario or some famous Nintendo brand. Sure, Pokemon X/Y is coming out soon, but Nintendo needs to show more than that. It needs to give players a game and a character that is familiar but new. Someone we all love and haven’t seen for a while. In short: Mega Man.

The mechanics in Legends is something Nintendo can relate to (especially with it borrowing so much from Zelda). It only makes sense to take it and improve it.

Mega Man fits under the Nintendo family
why-nintendo-needs-to-make-mega-man-legends-3
When SEGA announced that the upcoming Sonic games will be exclusive to Nintendo platforms it was for a good reason. People who love Nintendo are mostly gamers who are tied to retro 90’s gaming characters. Mega Man would fit perfectly there with many gamers ready to support him. Even if it were to be a 3D adventure Mega Man game, people would still give it a chance because it has Mega Man on the title.

Looking at the recent virtual console catalog on both the 3DS and Wii U and you'll see Mega Man titles on the top sellers. It's no a secret that people who love Nintendo games love Mega Man.
why-nintendo-needs-to-make-mega-man-legends-3
Mega Man Legends 3 deserves a second chance. Even till now the Facebook group have been constantly working hard by lunching a rocket and even attending the latest PAX event to meet the man who created Mega Man, Keiji Inafune (who sadly left Capcom months before MML3 was cancelled).

It's fair to assume by now that Capcom doesn't know what to do with the Mega Man brand anymore. Maybe without Keiji they feel lost. That’s why Mega Man needs help from an external force, he needs Nintendo and Nintendo needs him. Heck, even if they were to bring it back as a new type of 3D game I would still give it a shot.

I’m hopeful that things will work out eventually and that Legends fans finally get the results they fought so hard for. Oh, if you though that it would be impossible for a company to give one of their most famous brands to a third party then you probably haven’t played The Minish Cap: a Zelda game made by Capcom.

I would be glad with any real Megaman game right now that isnt another 8-bit classic megaman one. (no rockman X-over doesnt count). Doesnt have to be Legends 3 for me but would be cool.
