Earlier this month the annual Japan Expo was held in Paris, France. Numerous big names in Japanese culture and media were in attendance, including the “Father of Mega Man” Keiji Inafune. Ancode Udw, a huge Mega Man fan and a member of the Facebook group 100,000 Strong for Mega Man Legends 3, traveled from Spain to Paris to meet Inafune and show his appreciation for the Mega Man series to the man who made it all possible. Ancode gave Inafune a 100,000 Strong for Mega Man Legends 3 T-Shirt and a 40-page collection of fan art from the various Mega Man series.
To top it off, Inafune let Ancode take a photo to show the rest of us that while he is no longer with Capcom, he’s still in strong support of bringing back Legends 3. The Facebook group has a pretty detailed story on the whole exchange that is definitely worth reading. Inafune’s interpreter even chimed in on the comments that the Blue Bomber’s father greatly appreciated the gesture. Here’s hoping there are more good news stories as we approach the one-year anniversary of the cancellation.
