I was really looking forward to playing this too. I loved both Legends games, so much in fact that I wanted to play through the Japanese versions to hear the original voices as well. When news of this 3rd game getting released hit, I was extremely excited and even contemplating purchasing a 3DS solely to play this game since it would be the very one that had the highest chance of sealing the deal of purchasing a new full-priced console...
It's very disparaging to hear this news and I don't think it is going to be good publicity for Capcom. I think they made a mistake with hyping this for so long (I even thought it was officially coming out!) only to pull the project in the end. That's now two MegaMan titles that have been canceled. I'm starting to really think that Capcom is really starting to not care about the Blue Bomber anymore aside from downloadable titles. Maybe there is a good reason Keiji Inafune left the company. I do remember hearing something about the reason being that he wanted more creative freedom over new titles and ideas, but that could have just been a rumor.
The AA vs. Layton crossover is going to be handled by Level-5, so if we don't get it we can point fingers at them instead.
Hasn't Nintendo been publishing their stuff over here though? (At least the Layton games)
Level-5 is opening (has opened?) an office in the west, so they'll be handling their own games from now on. Although I just heard this rumor that apparently Level-5 is leaving it up to Capcom to publish PLvsAA... and Capcom is leaving it up to Level-5 to publish it...
EDIT: Did a little more research. They apparently aren't localizing their own games, just developing. My bad!
