[Polygon] Massive Nintendo leak reveals early Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon secrets

Quote:
In late July, anonymous users on internet bulletin board 4chan started posting files purporting to show source code and development repositories of over a dozen classic Nintendo games, from Super Mario World and a canceled Zelda 2 remake to Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Since then, fans have pored over the files and are flooding social media with all sorts of previously unreleased information, some from games we know and love, and some hailing from early builds of those games. Here’s what you need to know.

WHAT’S IN THE LEAK?
Tons, much of it distributed in two big chunks — one for Super NES games and another for Nintendo 64 games. But in terms of what might interest an average person, the leak appears to contain source code for Super Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Yoshi’s Island. What this means is that people can look at the original code that makes up these games; normally, these are the sorts of files that the public can’t access and never gets to see, because what’s playable is very different than what developers use to build games.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

We can this stuff already FOR FREE. Why are companies trying to sell us recycled crap? One example being a crysis remaster, a game that literally can't be remade to look any better than it already was, and in fact the reveal looks worse! lol. Like do they really think people are gonna buy that ****? Just make a brand new game with new concepts. They said capitalism was supposed to spawn innovation, It's literally accomplishing the opposite.

I thought I would never say this, but I'm done with Nintendo. Some of the best 1st party IP anywhere and what do they do? Sit on it.

It's infuriating.

Dont we get a new one of each series with every main console launch?

I would say that isn't enough.

What is taking so long to get a new Metroid, for example? I know 4 is coming, but how many years has it been since we got a truly new Metroid?
