Or rather, a Bonne Mecha! The Bonnes are a family in the Mega Man Legend RPG series who specialize in building special robots that perform a variety of different tasks. This time, Capcom’s devs are reaching out again to their fans to see who can make a “Bonne Mech” to feature in the new Mega Man Legends 3 title they’re working on for the Nintendo DS.

It’s been quite a few years since the last Mega Man Legends game had come out – on the PS1. While it seems aimed at older fans that remember the games on the PS1, putting it on the DS will also re-introduce this little slice of Mega Man’s RPG world to a new generation. It’s slated to come out sometime in 2011.

This contest follows a previous one where the devs had asked fans to design a heroine for the game. To help inspire budding mech designers, they’ve provided some material to go over to help spur imaginations at their official developers blog. You can’t submit new ideas yet, but they’ll let everyone know when the floodgates are open. Who knows? The mech that players cry over for being the toughest thing they’ve ever fought might just be yours. How’s that for lasting fame?
