Another leak reveals Wii source code, iQue related files, N64 test demos, and more

In recent times, we've seen quite a number of major leaks in regards to video game content. Joining the leaks for The Last of Us Part II's story cutscenes, and the source code for both Pokemon Gold and Silver and Team Fortress 2 is a collection of Nintendo-related content. Supposedly, RouteFree, the company behind Nintendo's iQue Chinese division, and BroadOn, a company that assisted Nintendo with the development of the Wii, were recently hacked, leading to a source obtaining various files from them, including source code and betas.

Included in the files was information about how Nintendo created the Wii itself, demos for games that they used to test the Nintendo 64 during development, the full source code for the Nintendo Wii's IOS, a handful of pictures and documents about Nintendo's plans during the years of 2004-2006, the iQue GameCube SDK, and much more. Certain users have already begun uploading videos of some of these leaked demos running on emulators or official hardware. Just as with the other leaks, you cannot link to the content or distribute it, as those files contain copyrighted content.

still, the leaked docs will help further improve the documentation about the different consoles, which developers will end up using in their projects, right?

Any work that comes from this won't be allowed to be hosted or linked to here. No using other people's copyrighted code.

Buuut this on the flip side, this is brilliant, and I'm looking forward to the work that comes from this. They don't sell wii and the wii shop is down. So it's not going to contribute to hurting their sales any.

Question: if the Wii U or 3DS source codes were released, would we be able to adjust or remove the 300 title limit?
along with other fancy stuff that you could add to the IOS, maybe USB mouse, Gamecube and Wii U Pro Controller support like the Wii Classic Controller does already, FTP, among other amenities.

Let's be honest here... While we know that using the source code in any capacity is illegal, there is going to be some developer that looks at the leaks and has a sudden spurt of "inspiration". It might not be in the next few days, but I'm thinking a few years from now we'll see the results of the leak. Maybe even unnoticeable improvements that build over time.
