YouTuber Steven Seventyeight has secured an early Rockman X3 prototype. The build is dated August 23rd, 1995; four months before the game's December release.
While not terribly earth shattering, we can see a number of small aesthetic differences. The intro cutscene is missing background effects, Blizzard Buffalo's stage has a slightly different background, and the stage select is missing a few key visuals. Keen-eyed fans may spot even more!
As we've come to learn, Mega Man prototypes often hide even more interesting differences inside the data. Hopefully it won't be too long before this gets dumped! We'll keep you posted.
