There have been lots of leaks from Nintendo’s archives throughout 2020. They’ve provided interesting information about a few classics like Luigi in Super Mario 64, proposals for a portable GameCube with dock and a more powerful GameCube successor, cancelled Game Boy / Game Boy Color games, and more. 2020 is just about to end, but not before an additional Nintendo leak – this time for Switch.

The Switch leak covers documents from 2014, well before the system was finalized. Twitter users orcastraw and forestillusion shared some of the interesting findings. We’re able to see an early design (above) and learn about cut features like 3DS backwards compatibility.

Here’s the full roundup of tidbits:


It’s that time once again. Nintendo leaks have sprung up for what feels like the umpteenth time, and it’s possible that there could be big news to follow. If you haven’t been keeping track of the various leaks over the past several months, we suggest visiting this page and this page.

As for today’s leak, reports have surfaced of a full Pokemon Sun and Moon repository coming online dating from 2014 to 2017. There are also files for the RVT-NDEV (a Wii development system) and three zip files labeled as “ios-releases”. We’ll have to wait and see what sort of discoveries can be gleamed, but there are already some interesting Pokemon findings.

The latest Nintendo leak isn’t only just about cancelled Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. Among the latest discoveries are a couple of interesting images for Wii Sports spotted by forestillusion and dconn537.

First up is a prototype image that shows Miis with ears, which is actually something we’ve never seen before. You’ve been able to customize features like the eyes, nose, hair, and even mouth shapes, but ears were never a part of the avatar’s design.

Were you left unsatisfied with this year’s Pokemon leaks? Or how about all of the ones involving the N64? Perhaps the latest leak will tickle your fancy, which involves the Game Boy and Game Boy Color.

The latest treasure trove of leaks stem from a “lotcheck” dump of Game Boy and Game Boy Color games from way back in the day. Titles submitted in this state were submitted to Nintendo for review.

What’s included in today’s findings involve a bunch of cancelled games like Pokemon Picross, which was promoted in Japanese gaming magazines in 1999, but never actually made it to market. Then there’s Gimmick Land, coming from Mario & Luigi developer AlphaDream. On top of that, we have a look at ports of Famicom / Super Famicom games, English localizations that never officially released outside of Japan, and even a Hello Kitty game that apparently would have supported the Game Boy Printer.

Here’s a roundup of notable findings:


Years before the Switch’s debut, it seems that Nintendo considered the idea of creating a device that would have allowed for similar “play anywhere” gameplay.

Nintendo has been hit with plenty of leaks as of late. There’s now been another leak within the past few days, and a proposal has been discovered involving a portable GameCube with dock.

As spotted by Twitter user LuigiBlood, the dock had GameCube controller ports, SD card / GC Memory Card slot, AV out, and optional TV tuner + MPEG4 Encoder and wireless technology. Here’s a look at one of the proposals:
