Inafune would still want to make Mega Man Legends 3 if he had the chance

Capcom cancelled Mega Man Legends 3 roughly four years ago. But that doesn’t mean Keiji Inafune (who was working on development of the project) wouldn’t be interested in bringing it back.
Game Informer recently asked Inafune if ReCore – a new Xbox One title coming from his Comcept studio and Armature – will use any ideas from Mega Man Legends 3. To this, he said that he’d like to make that game if he had the chance.
Inafune’s full comments:
Maybe not at the level of calling out specific gameplay features that would have gone into Legends 3. To be completely honest, if I had the chance, I would still say, “Yes, I want to still make that game.” In that regard, there’s something probably emotional or spiritual that I feel like on a very high level that I don’t completely lose everything, all my ideas, that I had at that time. They may have been transferred or carried over or been reflected in some way, shape, or form in ReCore. That’s something that is part of me, so it’s going into ReCore. One thing that I feel is very different though is that if I went down the Legends 3 path and I was continuing on that path I feel like maybe it’s a bit of more of a throwback to when it was made. Going back into time, but giving it a new skin and fresh look. With ReCore though, I’m not looking back. I’m looking into the future. I’m looking beyond what I can do today. This has given me the opportunity to retain some of what was in my soul, but then transfer that into a future outlook and direction. That’s a big difference in the path that, to me, is different between those two titles.
