ClayFighter [SNES – Beta / Unused Stuff]

ClayFighter is a fighting game developed by Visual Concepts and published by Interplay for the Super Nintendo in 1993, and later ported to Mega Drive/Genesis in 1994. In an old promo video, uploaded on Youtube by gamecubedude03, we can see some beta differences as a removed Super Move green meter. As noted by Falcovsleon20, Blue Suede Goo was originally named Elvis the Impersonator, Ickybod Clay was originally named Ghost Guy, Helga was originally named Val, and Tiny was originally named Crusher.

Also Nabz noticed that on back of the Box Art there is a picture with the Blob transforming into a Bomb and another screen in which an opponent is thrown into the slime river at the clowns stage. These special moves were removed from the final game. The unused Blob / bomb move can still be seen thanks to a game genie (6280-DD6F): Blob will turn into a bomb and after a couple of seconds, it will explode and hurt both himself and the opponent. Kind of a pointless move, which was probably why it was disabled in the first place.

Lucas also noted that Taffy was orginally named Taffy Man and his alt pallete is Green, The Blob was orginally named Blob, Blue Suede Goo outfit orginally is Blue, Ickybod Clay was named Icky Bod Clay after Ghost Guy and all the charatcers have his own intros

ToeJam & Earl III [XBOX – Unused Stuff]

ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth is an action video game released in October 2002 for the Xbox, and is the third game in the ToeJam & Earl series. It was originally developed for Sega’s Dreamcast before being ported to the Xbox after the Dreamcast’s commercial failure. You can find more screens and videos from ToeJam & Earl III Dreamcast in our Unseen Archive.

Phugolz was able to find some unused cutscenes hidden in the final game, as he wrote in the U64 Forum:

I began to dig through the files. I found what appears to be a set of hot tub cutscenes that were never used! On top of that, there seems to be a video capture test video lost among them that has footage of what appears to be the grass level, with a hot tub! The hot tub is -kinda- used in a secret area linked from the grass area.

You can find some videos of the unused scenes at X-Cult!
