Last year a bunch of sensitive data from Nintendo was released in what became known as the Gigaleak. Since then, fans have had their pickaxes out and delved greedily into the data, uncovering ever more secrets.
Some recent highlights include early concepts for the Wiimote, showing how dramatically ideas can evolve over the course of development.

- The leaks are believed to have come from third-parties working with Nintendo
