Since Project M was suddenly terminated for unknown reasons (most likely legal intervention from Nintendo/Konami), its development as a product has stagnated. After six months, a torrent of new information has been leaked by an alleged ex-member of PMDT, meaning that fans could make the unfinished content a reality.

The leaks were posted on 4chan, but have been aggregated nicely on the Project M Community Edition subreddit here.


For a brief overview of what the leaked content entails without wading through millions of data files, it essentially contains the following:

  • Ness ‘Bee’ Skin
  • Knuckles and Lyn Characters
  • Pig Ganon Alt
  • Pichu files
  • Two announcers (including D1, a legendary Smash Bros commentator)
  • Concept art for the leaked characters, as well as a new FD and Marth skin
  • Bowser with fireball projectile akin to SMB1
  • Potentially custom maps

Project M will never regain the momentum it once had with PMDT behind the wheel, but hopefully we’ll see more developments with this data in spite of the legal trouble.

Rumour has it that Mike has never been seen without a pen in one hand and a controller in the other. Writing and games are his passions, so it’s no surprise that he’s the News Editor of the Video Game section. Mike doesn’t pick favourites, but he’ll always have a soft spot for Bloodborne, Undertale and Super Smash Bros – just don’t turn items on.
