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.
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.
