The Cutting Room Floor is a site dedicated to unearthing and researching unused and cut content from video games. From debug menus, to unused music, graphics, enemies, or levels, many games have content never meant to be seen by anybody but the developers — or even meant for everybody, but cut due to time/budget constraints.
Feel free to browse our collection of games and start reading. Up for research? Try looking at some stubs and see if you can help us out. Just have some faint memory of some unused menu/level you saw years ago but can't remember how to access it? Feel free to start a page with what you saw and we'll take a look.
Developer: Nintendo EAD
Released: 2007, Wii
Super Mario Galaxy takes traditional platforming and sets it deep in space in one of the best video games of all time. Left over in the game are traces of all the ideas that didn't quite make it into the game, from lost planets to unused enemies to early models. A few of these ideas were worked into the sequel.
Were You Aware...
- ...that Iron Tank contains an angry screed by KNT, the game's programmer? (Don't worry, he got better.)
- ...that the Game Boy Camera has all of the content used in an undumped CoroCoro Comics version that was never released to the public?
- ...that Mega Man Zero 3 had e-Reader support that was cut from all non-Japanese releases?
- ...that the PC version of Plants vs. Zombies has a page of unused minigames?
- ...that the Game Boy Color version of Dragon Warrior III has Dragon Warrior IV-related content in it?
- ...that the instructions for reaching the final stage of the NES X-Men were hidden in the in-game text?
