Ahh, how unfortunate that this project has become a thing of the past. It is unlikely I will ever complete this, so here's the last video of the SA-X project.

It's not much, but I can definitely say I had plans for this.

First of all, I was intending on having him wield all of the beam types from Super Metroid (the sprites were done, and a swap out system was set in place) as well as beam combos to go with them. Each beam could be swapped mid-battle or maintained throughout a single battle depending on weather I wanted it to or not.

If I ever got around to it, I so wanted to add a couple of custom cinematics such as one where the SA-X destroys Samus' armor and having Samus combat the SA-X to regain a beam while it used the beam in question(and beam c
