Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version delayed past Nintendo 3DS eShop Launch

Previously scheduled to release alongside the anticipated launch of the Nintendo 3DS eShop, Capcom have announced that Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version has been delayed.

Such news was announced by Tatsuya Kitabayashi, Producer, who explained that whilst the delay was unfortunate, the development team had a “renewed desire to create a product of the highest quality.” Unfortunately no indication has been given as to when Kitabayashi-san expects development to be completed.

Within a short message posted on Capcom Unity, Kitabayashi writes: “Today I come to you with an important announcement. The release of ‘Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version,’ which had been planned to coincide with the launch of the Nintendo eShop at the end of May [in Japan], has been delayed.”

He continues, “It’s always been our aim in the production of this game to create something that would provide a fun time for all, and from here on out, we will be maintaining this aim with a renewed desire to create a product of the highest quality. Please wait just a little longer!”

“My sincere apologies go out to all who have been eagerly awaiting this game’s release!” Kitabayashi adds. “It’s terribly unfortunate that this announcement had to come right on the heels of the “Real Meeting” [note: this was a hands-on event to take place in Japan, which has also been delayed] delay announcement, as I know many of you are worried. But all of us here on the development team are going to continue working on this project, harder than ever. Keep cheering us on!”
