Mega Man X3 is the 3rd and final version of the Mega Man X game series from the developer Capcom on SNES – Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was first launched in Japan in December 1995 as Rockman X3. After that, the game was available in North America and the rest of the world in 1996.
In Mega Man X3, the game takes place in the 22nd century, where humans co-exist with intelligent robots (Reploids). They could operate freely. However, some Reploids tended not to want to collaborate with humans. Instead, they often participated in the activities of the underworld (the work of criminals). These reploids tended to be called Maverick. Therefore, Dr. Cain – the creator of the Reploids, established a special military force to search and destroy the Maverick to protect the world order. This unit was named Hunter Maverick. Among the dangerous Maverick of the underworld, Sigma is the most dangerous villain but he was defeated by Zero and Mega Man X. However, Maverick’s criminal activities continued. To solve this problem, new Reploids are manufactured by Dr. Doppler by using a special device to help them not to commit illegal acts. At that time, the Reploids came back and interfered with Doppler’s work. They also did a crazy job of attacking the Hunter Maverick headquarters. Therefore, Zero and Mega Man X received missions to destroy the rebel Reploids.
In the mission of defeating the rebels, players will control Mega Man X and Zero in many different areas. Each combat mission will give you 2 bosses to defeat and complete the task. In which, 1 boss appears in the middle of each mission, and 1 boss at the end of the mission. Besides, the game has a certain number of restrictions. You can freely use Zero to fight but cannot use the character in battles with bosses. Also, this character cannot collect support items of Mega Man such as costumes or weapons. And Mega Man can still use many of his familiar weapons as the previous two versions (X-Buster …). To keep himself safe, the game allows X to collect many different parts of his armor. Also, you can use 2 support items, especially Sub-Tanks (energy storage) and Heart Tanks (extending the energy bar of X).
