Following on from those “massive” Nintendo leaks earlier this year, it has now reportedly happened again.
Alleged prototype versions of classic Super Nintendo titles such as Yoshi’s Island, Super Mario Kart, and Star Fox 2 have all surfaced online, along with source code. This “gigaleak” is believed to stem from the same one we first reported on in May, which contained source code for the Wii, GameCube, a Pokémon game, the iQue, and much more.
Dylan Cuthbert – the lead developer on four Star Fox titles – has even spotted a tool he made for Star Fox 2:
In addition to what’s already been mentioned, the leak also supposedly contains source code for other SNES games like F-Zero, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Star Fox and WildTrax (Stunt Race FX).
There’s apparently code for the Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, and even The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX, too.
As you can see, there’s Yoshi’s Island with a different user interface, unused mini-games, a “human character” for Star Fox 2, a prototype “Donkey Kong”, a build of Yoshi’s Island called “Super Donkey” – featuring an unknown character, and “Zelda 3” sprites.
It doesn’t end with Nintendo’s titles, either. There’s also been a Konami dump of prototype games – the standout being Super Castlevania IV, featuring a slightly different soundtrack (thanks, Modern Vintage Gamer).
If we see or hear anything else exciting about this leak, we’ll be sure to let you know.
