Da come riportato, Capcom ha definitivamente chiuso il progetto Megaman Legend 3, in creazione per la console 3DS.
Sembra che Capcom non speri più nella mascotte robotica e i fan che aspettavano un terzo capitolo da ormai più di 10 anni, sono rimasti delusi dalla software house nipponica. Ma non solo, Capcom dice esplicitamente di Megaman che non può fare successo...
Riporto parte della notizia presa da Siliconera:
When we recently spoke to Capcom community manager, Seth Killian, he revealed to us that, surprisingly, Capcom’s Japanese division doesn’t believe Mega Man is popular in America.
“There is also sort of this weird issue in Japan where a lot of Japanese developers, at least internal in Capcom, sort of don’t believe Mega Man is popular in the U.S.,” Killian told us at the time.
A message board thread regarding this same subject was opened by a user on Capcom’s community forums last week, asking if anyone at Capcom could provide insight as to the reason behind Capcom Japan’s line of thinking. Capcom USA VP, Christian Svensson, was the first to reply:
“Relative to Japan, North American sales of MM titles is historically lower (though MM9 and MM10 were significantly higher in NA than Japan). Another complicating factor is the fact that the demographic for MM there is much younger than it is here. My suspicion is that it’s due to the fact that for years, MM in Japan has been promoted in the weekly Kuro comics magazine, which is younger skewing and the Battle Network/Starforce series was also aimed as a much younger demo than Classic, X or Zero franchises, so we tend to get some mismatches across the brand.
We know it’s a popular brand in NA, but perspective is all relative.”
Che il robot blu della Capcom sia destinato a fare una triste fine come per Viewtifull Joe?
Come Sonic, anche Megaman ha perso il papà (entrambi se ne sono andati)... che dire?
Unitevi a me nelle condoglianze ad una saga amata e apprezzata da moltissimi videogiocatori...
