Capcom Doesn’t hate MegaMan, honest!

With the exclusion of MegaMan from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the cancellation of MegaMan Legends 3 and MegaMan Universe it really hasn’t been a great few weeks for the blue bomber.  You would therefore be excused if you thought that perhaps Capcom wasn’t really the biggest fan of MegaMan at the moment, and might even be putting the franchise to bed.

Never fear! During a Q&A, Capcom’s Christian Svensson replied to the question on several of our hearts: Is MegaMan dead?

Oh, absolutely not. The frustrating thing for me is I have nothing I can hold up and say, ‘Oh, here’s this other Mega Man thing’. Absolutely, we have other things… Mega Man is a very important brand to Capcom. We get questions [like] ‘Are you guys trying to kill the brand?’

No, absolutely not. It will continue to be a very important brand for us. I wish I had something I could hold and display for you that that’s the case, but I don’t right now. But super, super important to us; I do want to express that.

So, he isn’t dead.  He’s just… resting?  And because we all knew the question after that would be about the cancellation of MegaMan Legends 3, here’s what his reply was:

The decision was not made lightly. Certainly, we knew there would be a lot of upset people and in spite of that, we still had to make that decision. That doesn’t mean we don’t care about you at all. I unfortunately can’t get into the details of it, but it was not a decision that was made lightly and I can tell you that no one is happy about that decision, but it was a decision that had to be made.

There would be upset people, yes.  I think the problem was, there wouldn’t be enough  upset people that would have actually bought the game.  After all, that’s really what it comes down to in the end.
