Despite slowed growth in support from new members, the movement to rescue Mega Man Legends 3 from cancellation still marches on.
While the official petition thread is still showing definite signs of life on a day-to-day basis, the "100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3" Facebook group has changed their main base of operations to Get Me Off The Moon -- a hub for Mega Man Legends 3 fans to collectively participate in other petitions and similar sites. Aside from a main North American page, the group has now created Facebook pages for various languages, including Japanese, French, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish. All together, the extra sites sit below 450 members, with the main North American page just above of 33,000 "Likes."
Per the group's latest update:
If you haven't noticed by now, we've gone international thanks to the administration of the GetMeOffTheMoon International Strategies Facebook page. They have reached out to us in overwhelming support, and today the rollout begins. Though a proper and formal introduction to all involved will have to come later, we here at the North American page want to give all of you, the administration, the translators, every single one of you, our sincere thanks.
It's not just the fans that are still holding out hope, though, as Andriasang reports that MML3 programming director Yoshiyuki Fujikawa is silently maintaining interest in how things turn out:
While saying that he's not in a position to wish petitioners good luck, he said that he will offer a feeling of support. He also appears to have a positive outlook on the chances of the petition getting notice, saying that perhaps the message will get through if fans show a lot of interest. He also recalled an instance when such fan activities lead to the release of a Nadesico DVD.
Get Me Off The Moon also notes that the best way fans can help is by joining Capcom's Mega Man Legends 3 Developer Room, and registering to become Servbots. Instructions, plus a step-by-step guide from the admins can be seen here. According to them, 25,000 registered Servbots seems to be the magic number needed to get things rolling again for Mega Man.
