More interesting stuff. Looks like Links awakening was original going to be called Dreaming Island. Also, Bowser looks pretty bad arse.

The real big news from all of this is that ther was a Super Donkey Kong game in early prototype phase and it looks oddly like Plok in some ways. Seems like work on it was cancelled but ideas kept for Yoshis Island (which early on did not feature mario! It actually had a little Elf boy on Yoshis back)

 Also the very first Yoshi in super mario world looked...well more like a dinosaur than the one we see today.

A rather Plok-ish and Yoshi-free early prototype of Yoshi’s Island.
 

Confirms some fan theories that Nintendo sometimes designed and implemented games mechanics before later assigning characters/IP.

Another Holy shit. Super Castlevania IV beta with differant music and differant enemies etc.

Damn the stage 2 music is great.

What a gold mine. Most companies just bin the lot but seeing all this come out is fascinating.

Someone else on Twitter pointed out that the baby Yoshis in the final SMW still have the beak-like design of these proto Yoshis.

 

This is all fascinating stuff.

The guy reminds me an awful lot of this forgotten Nintendo game.

Interesting find there as the charcter can fly around the screen in the prototype.

Another intersting one.

Dragonfly eventually became pilotwings and was a very differant game but it was also the testbed for mode 7 stuff.

That’s a find and a half! From what we know, the helicopter missions were all that remained from Dragonfly in the final Pilotwings, but altered to remove the sci-fi look. Would be great if a playable version of Dragonfly is among the leaks as well.


(I’m also finding all the Super Mario World early graphics fascinating, as it’s quite some evidence for SMW originally being planned as a fairly larger game, with much more in common with Super Mario Bros 3. I guess limited development time and cartridge space restrictions lead to it becoming the SMW we all know and love.)
