You know, I’m not even a giant Legends fan and I still feel jerked around by Capcom. Better late than never I suppose.
Very few of Capcom’s answers came off as sincere. As far as Legends … and Megaman in particular are concerned, I think Inafune put it best. Capcom just doesn’t think Megaman is popular. Not only in the US, as he said, but in Japan as well it seems. Most of their terrible PR says as much (if you look at it the right way) and I think that’s what they think.
Of course they still could have given the preview a shot. Could have done a lot of things. Maybe one day it’ll be leaked.
