    It's time for another anonymous treasure trove. Someone has, yet again, posted a collection of highly interesting bits of Nintendo history, in the form of source codes, development repositories, and beta/debug builds of Super Nintendo games. This is an addition to the previously uploaded content we've seen earlier this year, which included beta Pokemon designs, the source code for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 64 prototypes, and other files. In this leak, source code for Star Fox and Star Fox 2, Super Mario World, Link's Awakening, Yoshi's Island, F-Zero, potentially Super Mario RPG, A Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, and more are all available. Some Twitter users have already gotten their hands on the files, uploading footage of these beta versions of games, such as an early build of Yoshi's Island, seen below.

    Downloads for these files cannot be provided, though they are making their rounds across the internet, and have not been taken down from their original source yet.



    Referred to by some as the "Gigaleak", the contents of the 4chan post are as such, so far.

    It's fascinating just how many things we can discover from these leaks, and it makes me really excited about what the community can do with them, just take SM64 as an example.

    Still holding out hope that one of these source code leaks drops soon that will finally help us bypass the 300 title limit on Wii U and 3DS.

    How the hell did Super Mario World start out as THAT? I feel like I'm cursed just from watching it.

    Wow. Not sure what I would look at first here. Private keys would be nice but things are blown so wide open I am not sure what it would bring. That said would be interesting to see what that arcade stuff is about.

    Would not mind seeing the ensata source code.

    I wonder if the Ensata source code could be adapted and made into a Wii U homebrew emulator. Obviously we have fairly good DS compatibility on the Wii U via the VC and injections, but not every game works, so if a proper emulator developed for the Wii U could be possible, that would be great, and obviously the Wii U of all consoles would be the best system to develop such an emulator for given its 2 screen nature.

    i would never ask for such files but would be cool to look through some of the more popular ones... so far all my 5min search has found
    20100713cvs_backup.tar.7z
    other.7z
    netcard.7z
    so unless other contains cool stuff (at 372.2mb i doubt) then more research will be needed

    ensata was already known before this leak and it's allegedly a pretty terrible emulator. There's really no reason to port it anywhere (that's leaving aside all the legal implications).
