Capcom Needs Help With Mega Man Legends 3's Easter Eggs

image

Your idea for a Mega Man Legends 3 easter egg could make it into the game.

The Mega Man Legends series has featured many different easter eggs to keep players entertained when taking a break from robot blasting. Capcom wants a similar number of easter eggs to be included in Mega Man Legends 3, and you can have an impact due to the unique nature of the game's development.

Capcom has started a community "dev room" to get fans involved with the design of various aspects of Legends 3, such as the game's heroine and a mecha. The latest campaign is all about secret easter eggs.

As an example of what Capcom is looking for, the original Mega Man Legends had cans lying in the street that the player could kick into a store for cash, but doing so would annoy the shopkeeper. Another easter egg featured the ability for Mega Man to keep the money from a bank robbery, but this act would turn him completely black. Capcom wants some new ideas for these types of secrets it could include in Legends 3.

To get involved, go to the Mega Man Legends 3 dev room forums and follow the instructions here. The easter eggs must follow the guildlines of four specific abilities - kick, jump, grab object, and throw object - but other than that fans are free to come up with whatever unique actions they can think of.

Some current suggestions include skipping rocks across water and a cameo by Phoenix Wright. Can you think of anything better?

Just shows you how much stuff they've got on the table.

This is awsome and I hope kicking the can returns

Put in actual Easter Eggs, and once you collect them all, you unlock a new boss: Jesus Man. He shoots chocolate lasers out of his eyes.

I relayed this article to my friend who's a serious megaman legends fan and is just all a flutter with the third one coming out. He's a really bloke too so I no doubt he's going to hit that forum and suggest like crazy. I'd be interested in seeing the game pan out too they were really fun.

I always loved that bit in the first game where you have the option of keeping the money instead of returning it to the bank like a good little boy. The first time I played that game, I thought returning the money was the only possible outcome, but I didn't know where the bank was. I thought it was in another area, so I went to look for it there - and next thing I know, Mega Man is several shades darker, everybody hates him and I can suddenly afford a bunch of new upgrades. Took me a while to figure that out!

I'd like to see more such scenarios in the new one. Nothing wrong with playing Mega Man like a 100% squeaky-clean boy scout at all times, but if it WERE possible to make him a ruthless criminal hated by all, I think we'd all go for this option once, just for the variety!

Wait, what? THERE'S A MEGAMAN LEGENDS 3 IN DEVELOPMENT?! WHY WASN'T I TOLD?!?!

A copy of "Misadventures of Tron Bonne" unlockable to play in-game via the menus. Complete with saving functionality, of course!

This was my reaction, more or less.

OT: Pick up Data and try to throw him through a hoop! :D

I had the same thought seriously when did this happen? and why was I not told? >.>

It should be an actual egg. Just an egg. A decorated egg, and as you get close, you see the shadow of a bunny hopping away.

Totally off topic, but nice avatar.

Thanks...we should start a band! haha

I guess sleeping with his step-sister doesn't count.

That was always going to be in there.

Yeah!

No... :(

Was "All a flutter" an intentional pun? Because if so, very nice. :D

OT: Proto man. :)

Honestly, my only suggestion is less fan input, more making the game! I want to plaaaaaaaaaay it and I want to play it ASAP.

Sadly, it looks like they opted to not put it on the consoles and are going to make it for the 3DS. Sigh... put it on a console! I'll even accept it on the Wii.

WHAT? WHAT THE FUCK?!?!

*Double facerolls keyboard*

Thanks a lot, Nintendo, you've forced me to beat up some random eight year old and steal his 3DS to play this game. What? I'm sure as hell not going actually buy one legitimately for $400+ and three hours of battery life per charge.

I wish more developers would incorporate fans into making of sequels and whatnot

last time I looked the 3DS was $250 USD and had 7 hours of battery life if with 3D on. Nintendo also likes to under state their products so its probably more like 10 hours.

Oh, they actually announced a price? Well the issue with Nintendo handhelds is that they always come out with twelve improved versions of each of them prior to moving on to the next generation, which makes you feel like a total tard for picking up the first one.

LITE! XL! DOUBLE XL LITE!

Was I the only one who was a little off-put when I saw this?

OT: I like the community approach that Capcom is taking with this game.

Of course, the Phoenix Wright cameo does sound pretty fun.

This is why I won't be getting it. Iteration after iteration after iteration, and you're expected to buy all of them. That and the fact that I also want an NGP and an iPod Touch at some point...

Also, nice avatar. I remember beating Storm Eagle a long, long, long, long time ago. Time to go round up an emulator!

I still don't understand why they're calling it Megaman Legends 3 if there is no Megaman, why not just make a new IP?

I'm really hoping...that they put this damn game on the PSP2 as well as the 3DS. I have no interest in buying both units.

I loved the first two, only time I ever got into Megaman games. But a new heroine? Eff that, I want Roll back. :(

Fronzel:

CONTINUITY ALERT! roll isn't always related to megaman even in megaman powered up it suggest that it was okay for them to date although they didn't completely put it out there for whatever reason.

Dont forget that damned leap of faith to get the heart container >:(

OT: Be able to kick Data in the face so many times he yells profanities along with some derogatory statements :3

How about, for a totally bad-ass Easter egg, they announce that they secretly made a new, kick-ass Mega Man X game?

Whiskey Echo!!

That was me just now. I thought, "MML3 easter eggs?? There's a MML3?!?! The hell?? WOW!"

True, and I may I say your avatar is quite amazing.

I still have my old silver and black ds. It plays every DS game just fine and I never think about how my experience could have been better, playing on it. I wouldnt worry about that too much but maybe you care more about bigger and brighter screens than I do.

Im still a bit worried about the european price of the 3DS though.

im sorry, but

lol @ "robbery turns you black"

just watched an Onion News video, lol

Simple,put Frank West in another Capcom game.This time,have him and Chuck fighting off robot zombies.

I haz a bad feeling about MML 3 they put it off for so long and with thier new projects like Lost planet 2 failing to sell well I bet they will water down and mainstream this to death ><

mega man legends 3 on 3ds? I've just been sold on the system

mml1 and 2 were the best psx games EVAR
