Back when Mega Man Legends 3 was suddenly canceled, there was some talk about those who had contributed to the Devroom and had their submissions selected for inclusion in the game receiving special mementos of gratitude from the development staff for their efforts. And darn if I can't seem to find where that was said, but I'm pretty sure it was out there, somewhere. In any case, MMN reader Mimi informed us that she received a message on behalf of the developers from Gregaman a few days ago, asking for name, address, Servbot number-- all the stuff relevant to receiving the gift from the team. And once they have the information they need, they'll send them out as soon as they can.
So, consider this a notice for those of you who might have had something selected for the game: if you have not received any such e-mail, be sure to check your spam mail folders, trash, cowcatchers, whatever you've got...
Actually, as Mimi notes that she received a "message," so it might have simply been delivered via PM on Capcom Unity, so if your work was chosen and you have been avoiding the site lately out of grief and because it hurts so much... well, you might want to check in. At least you'll likely get to have something from this whole experience which few of the rest of us ever will.
And for those interested in the actual contents of the message, which includes the development team's thanks to the fans for their support, as well as their hopes that those same fans will continue to support Capcom and Mega Man, you can find that all below. Thanks, Mimi!
Hey there, Mimi.
The below is a message from the dev staff in Capcom Japan. I hope it provides you with a bit of joy in the face of our recent disappointment, but sorry if it doesn’t.
To those whose ideas were selected in Mega Man Legends Developer Room events:
Thank you very much for your support of Capcom and the Mega Man franchise. On July 18th, 2011, it was announced that development of Mega Man Legends 3 had been discontinued. It is the desire of the entire development staff, however, to send one final memento of our gratitude to those Devroom members whose ideas were to be used in the final game.
We apologize for any further inconvenience this might cause you, but we request that you please provide your name, mailing address, and telephone number so that we can send out these thank-you items. Please PM these details to Greg in the following format:
We’d like to apologize once again for not being able to satisfy the expectations of all those who were eagerly anticipating this title, as well as express our heartfelt gratitude for your support. Thanks so much.
We know it’s an additional burden on you to ask for this, but if you would please send the above information, we’ll send out your gift as soon as we can.
We sincerely hope that you will continue to support Capcom and the Mega Man franchise.
Just hit me up with that info at your earliest convenience.
