Yesterday, a massive Nintendo leak happened. It apparently includes source code, tools, and other things among the data, mostly from the SNES and 64 eras. For example:

-Yet another group of beta DP sprites, including an unused legendary known as "Kimairan" (it got replaced by Giratina).
-A human pilot for Star Fox 2, plus the SpaceWorld demo of the game.
-An Ocarina of Time proto.
-A functional (?) Luigi model for Super Mario 64.
-A Super Mario World proto known as "Super Donkey" that features someone that may or may not be Stanley from Donkey Kong 3.

I don't have all the info on it, so if you have more, please share it here.

Discussion is allowed, but sharing in any way is not.

Updated the OP. Only discussion is allowed, we're not to share these in any way.

I must say I love seeing these, it's interesting seeing the directions that these Pokemon have taken since conception.

I said this before, but the probopass beta looks like it's the "yes" chad meme.

Honestly I'm unsure about some of these, especially Luigi from Mario 64. There's people who've been working on datamining the game for years and this source code comes randomly out nowhere confirming this long standing rumor. I mean a lot of these games are very easily moddable/hackable so this while seemingly very likely to be true, can also be very likely to not be true.

But hey, I can always be wrong myself.

Well, someone that worked on Star Fox 2 confirmed that the tools he used were included in the leak, and he also commented on the human pilot, so I guess this is real.

You know, I think this also verifies a post I saw at Glitch City Laboratories, where they mentioned that the Spaceworld leakers also received the actual tools to make the Pokémon games. Wouldn't be surprised since everything indicates it came from the same Nintendo hack and it might have been the same hacker.

Although I wonder why they picked to reveal things from Pokémon first before going all out...
