Nintendo Leaks Continue with Unreleased Game Boy Games
Another round of Nintendo leaks, newly dubbed Gigaleak III, has revealed a huge number of Game Boy and Gamy Boy Color games that were either finished or close to finished and sent to Nintendo for certification ahead of release.
The leak appeared on anonymous image board and frequent far-right gathering place 4chan. It reportedly contains the ROMs for every game released on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color, plus several fully playable games that never saw official release.
Among the findings is Pokémon Picross, a Game Boy Color puzzle game Nintendo revealed and then canceled in 1999. Another is an early game by AlphaDream, the developer that would go on to develop the Mario & Luigi series. AlphaDream had planned to release the game on Game Boy Color, but development finished too close to the launch Game Boy Advance. It would later be reworked and released in Japan as Tomato Adventure.
Scores of other titles, including unfinished English localizations of games only ever released in Japan, appear in the leak.
