As many people know the MegaMan series is legendary and has been around since the NES era of gaming from the 80’s. While the more famous titles within the series includes MegaMan I-V along with the MMX series from ‘93-‘01 a lot of people seemingly forget about the Legends from ‘97. MegaMan Legend last was the first ever 3D installment within the entire series. Following its release Mega Man Legends generally received positive reviews from critics and gamers alike. However, it seems like MegaMan Legends from ‘97 is not remembered to the same extent as the other installments from the 90’s. While MegaMan Legends had appeared on multiple game systems back including Nintendo 64, Microsoft Windows and PlayStation Portable; it never received an official HD remake of any sort for game systems such as PS3, Xbox 360, etc. While the gameplay from Mega Man Legends deviated from the fast paced run n gun action seen in 2D MM installments the storytelling aspect was considered a strong point among many.

The idea of having a 3D action-adventure third person shooter MegaMan game was pretty unique especially since some people had doubts on whether or not Capcom could pull it off. While we recently got to see the release of the MegaMan Legacy Collections 1 & 2 back in ‘18 Mega Man Legends was absent and hardly anyone complained about it at all. The demand to see an HD Remake of MegaMan Legends is not strong enough among gamers for Capcom to make that a reality; that also goes for its successors MegaMan Legends 2 from 2000. The fact that MegaMan Legends 3 which was supposed to appear on the Nintendo 3DS in 2010 was cancelled tells you that there was very little interest within that series in general. While MegaMan Legends was pretty unique in its own right it still was not as memorable or fun as the 2D run n gun titles from the NES/SNES era from the 80’s & 90’s.
