Mega Man X-3 [SNES – Unused Stuff]

Mega Man X-3 [SNES – Unused Stuff]

Mega Man X3 was released in 1995 by Capcom. It was the third game in the Mega Man X sub-franchise and the last to appear on the Super Nintendo. GoldS has found some unused objects and behaviors that were still hidden in the game code, and you can see them in the following videos. Props to him!

Ian has made us to notice that:

Video 1:

  • The Ganseki may have orinnaly droped spiked balls on Zero in the intro stage, In the final the spiked balls just drop from the ceiling.
  • The Wild Tanks may have orginaly been completly submereged underground as to surprise the player but, in the final the “arm” is left out as to give the player an advantage.
  • Looking at the bottom entering door in Hornet’s stage may have been a test for doors that enter from another side that the right, Like in Mega Man 1 witch had doors that oped from the top and bottom of the screen.
  • The Ride Armor Boss may have been a test for a possible fight with Vile’s Ride Armor on Auto-Piolt or somthing, It may have been a fortress level boss as when defeated X does his victroy pose and warps out(Like finishing a end level boss), In the final Vile is in his Ride Armor before it’s destroed.

Video 2:

  • The Harmfull Carry Arm may have been a trap confusing players into
    taking damages, or the orignals may have had a timer so that if the player took too long they would begin to take damage.
  • For the Upside down enimies they may have been a time when these enemy types would cling to a ceiling to attack and or surprise them.

Thanks to Bowsersenemy and xMrNx we can see some unused Zero sprites and a strange W Meter bar that are still hidden in the game code. It seems that the unused W meter could be found in the memory of MMX 1 and 2 as well.

    I now for a fact that a Ganseki drops spike Ball during the intro Level of X3. I ritualisticly destroy it with the Saber Beam every time I play.
    However it does not shoot missles. Nor does it stick around on screen long enough to do anything but drop a spiked ball your head.

    The ride armor might have been used for beta testing how much damage X’s robot armors can take when attacked by enemies or any other projectiles. It couldn’t be a boss battle against Vile’s Goliath on Auto Pilot unless this was intended to be used in the game before they left it out.

    As for the unused Ganseki Carrier Type in video two, it is technically used at the beginning of the final stage before Sigma’s battle which only shoots missiles at you and doesn’t hover.
