A friend of mine sent this video the other day; the earliest known footage of 'Mega Man Neo', the work in progress version of Mega Man Legends.
The most notable differences between Neo and Legends are pure cosmetic:
- Rock's character model contains strange lighting effects, almost appears cel-shaded.
- Health/energy gauges are of a completely different design. The "L.Arm", "R.Arm" and "EX" gauges are entirely absent in Legends.
- Rock's running animation seems a bit off, can't quite put my finger on it.
- Bombs dropped by the Cannam Reaverbot lack detail, very generic.
- Rock's shadow is abnormally large.
If you know of any more Mega Man Neo footage, give me a holler, I'd love to see it!
