R.I.P. Megaman Universe

Mega Man Universe Is Totally Canceled



Brian Ashcraft Mega Man Universe was supposed to be out this year on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. It won't be. Capcom, the game's developer, is shutting the title down and ceasing development. Mega Man Universe has been canned.
In an official release, Capcom says the game is being canned for "various circumstances". It is unclear if those circumstances are related to the Tohoku Earthquake or, rather, to the fact that the designer of Mega Man Universe, Keiji Inafune, left Capcom. Or even to the fact that the game had spaghetti-like controls.
Capcom apologies in the release to those who were anticipating the title, as well as to those connected to the game.
Inspired by Mega Man 2, Mega Man Universe was a 2.5D platformer and was first revealed last fall in a clever launch trailer created by I Am 8-Bit. The game featured various incarnations of Mega Man. In Japan, Mega Man is known as "Rockman", and this was to be the first Mega Man to use the character's Western moniker in its native Japan.
Besides classic Mega Man play, the game also had a level editor in which players supposedly could create their own Mega Man stages.

This is more upsetting when you realize that Mega Man Legends 3 never got greenlit by Capcom.

Mega Man could be on a downward slope.

^ Isn't Legends 3 still in development?

Yeah, I read about this at school. Makes me wonder what's next for the MM series now that Inafune's gone.

It is, but who's to say it won't be canceled like MMU?

And that's just it: Inafune's gone. He was supposed to be a producer for MML3. Hopefully the others working on it will keep the game going strong without him.

For some feeling, I feel like Capcom has stopped caring for the series since Keiji left, though I could be wrong

Some more troubling news from Capcom's Community Manager, Seth Killian. Here's the link.

Are they trying to drop us hints or something?

I think part of the reason MMU was canned was because of the negativity surrounding the game, but who knows? *shrugs*

They've said that they would complete the game desite Inafune's departure, but hopefully MML3 doesn't follow the same path. Guess only time will tell.

Well, sure, there's some hope for MML3.

However, the fact that it's still not greenlit, and the fact that Capcom Japan thinks us Americans don't like Mega Man enough shows that we may not even get to see it stateside.
