Distraction Guy? Is that you? by kevinbolk Distraction Guy? Is that you? by kevinbolk
Hey! They put "Distraction Guy" in Street Fighter X Tekken!!


Ok, just kidding. It's supposed to be Mega Man from the original North American box art.

Still, the resemblance is UNCANNY, and now I will not be able to play this game without yelling "WILY WON'T DEFEAT HI'SELF, MAGGOT!!"

The answer is obvious... someone at Capcom really likes Kevin Bolk's work!

Due to simple rules of product selling, X7 and X8's failure more than likely killed the X series, just as Superman III and IV killed that movie series. It'll be a long time before we see another X game.

That's because X7 and X8 were crap.
9 was awesome though.
10 was meh.

That'd only happen if X proved popular. The problem is that X7 and X8 didn't sell. Megaman 9 did.

I'd only want another classic game if they connected Classic to X.

Actually, yes. Call of Duty has brand name recognition. Megaman Legends specifically doesn't. Megaman on its own may have it, so we might be able to expect another Classic game.

While Legends 1 and 2 didn't sell well in their time, they have gotten a big fanbase. So of course it'd sell.

The point is that the general public would care more about something that was really popular in the nineties rather than something they've never heard of. I know it's sad, but it's just how marketing works.

"Megaman was familiar."
Megaman Legends specifically?

My best friend is an Ace Attorney fan, and he wants to get Ghost Trick.

Megaman was familiar.

I don't think it works like that. Marketing knows that people are more accustomed to familiarity. If there exists something that would be more popular among mainstream sources, then they'll try and focus on that. I think Darkstalkers 4 has a chance because it's based on the Street Fighter engine. Ask any of your friends outside the internet if they've heard of Ghost Trick or Ace Attorney, then ask them if they've heard of Street Fighter or Marvel vs Capcom. You might be surprised by the results. Or not.

Then Capcom should put more marketing into the lesser games, so they do sell well.

The point is that there are certain titles that simply take priority over others. Marketing focuses on mainstream successes, not cult successes.

Capcom should learn to Market their niche games then.

Did you see any commercials for Ghost Trick?

Game successes are not measured by overall sales. They're measured by first week sales. Megaman Legends 1 and 2 didn't have good first week sales.

The internet existed when Legends 1 and 2 were out. It wasn't enough. Besides, the internet wasn't enough to push Ace Attorney to the point where it got a new game. It may have been popular in the US for a while, but not as popular as it was in Japan.

They could've waited for it to pick up the pace.
Because, the internet exists now. Games like Ace Attorney wouldn't be as big without it.

At the time, the 3DS was failing. Hard. Most of the titles for it were shovelware.

How do you know Legends 3 would've sold well? Do you have some logic for it, or just pointless optimism?

The point is, Capcom has done as much good as bad. Are you going to forsake the numerous bones they've thrown at us just because of how Megaman's been handled? And don't give me the "Megaman is Capcom's mascot" excuse. He's not. Ryu is. And he's been treated pretty well.

3DS has already outsold the DS's first year now.
I'm sure Legends 3 would've sold great nowadays.

I'm not a fighting game fan sorry.

"I hate Capcom, cancelling Megaman legends 3 was a dick move, and they can eat a dick."
Wow, in just one post you went from reasonable into a whiny fanboy.

Megaman Legends 1 and 2 didn't sell. The 3DS didn't sell. Do the math.

Are you completely willing to forget the awesome that they've done? Like giving you a fourth Street Fighter after so many years? Or a third Marvel vs Capcom after a long period? Or a crossover between the top two fighting games?

No I didn't assume that. Did I say they were out to get me personally, no I did not. I was just stating a possibility.
If you want attention and to spread your opinion so badly, I think your going about it the wrong way.
