Hey, remember that Rockman X3 prototype (08/23/1995) that showed up not too long ago? Well we secured it. It's in the hands of a good pal of mine. Right now he's seeking out the hardware needed for a dump. Once everything is in place, we'll release it publicly. I'll be debuting the file right here on the blog.
In the interim please enjoy some more footage. This is an early version of Neon Tiger/Shining Tigerd's stage with a few graphical differences (the background, mostly). Tigerd's sprite is much different than what we ended up with, too. He actually looks intimidating!
I can't say when the dump will go public but it will be worth it. Other differences to look forward to include Byte/Mandareera's early sprite and a fully-intact unused gate in Blast Hornet's stage (previously seen on the back of X3's NTSC box). Stay tuned!
