Legends Rising from the (Red) Ashes?

When Keiji Inafune left Capcom of Japan, the latter didn't just put Mega Man on the back burner; they took it off the stove entirely. As such, fans hungry for more of Inafune's specialty tasked him with creating a new game that was basically his old game. Only, you know... not.

That resulted in Mighty No. 9, the game which pretty much led to us adopting the term "Mega Man-esque" for such ventures that shine blue if you just scratch off some of the paint. Fans rallied behind it and supported it to the point that they basically said "wait, so long as you're making a not-Mega Man, why not a not-Mega Man Legends, too?"

Inafune has heard the call, and today, Comcept has apparently officially responded with the reveal of a trailer for a title called RED ASH: The Indelible Legend:

As you can see, Inafune's crew are pretty much out to send a message to Capcom. Whether it's a dare or simply rubbing in their face what they passed on creating, the end punctuation seems abundantly clear: "If you won't give the fans Legends, then we will."

Not much is known about the game, though, except that Comcept seems to be partnering with animation company Studio 4°C for the endeavor, and that more will be revealed at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 4th, where Inafune and Eiko Tanaka will be hosting a panel.

Thanks to Andrew, Skybane, and Vhyper1985 for the tips! (I was out running errands when the news broke, hence the late post.)
