During the Game Awards, a trailer for Mario Maker was released. While it was closer to the final game than the E3 2014 build, it was still very different.
Unused costume data
Several unused costumes are referenced in the game's CharaMarioTable.byaml file. None of them have graphics associated with them, however. Note that these names would not have been displayed in-game, as the in-game names are stored in a different file. These text strings are not present in the updated archives in updates 1.01 and above.
Eight of the costumes, that were previously unused in the initial launch version, were later re-added as Event Course costumes and rewards for completing the 100 Mario Challenge in the v1.40 update.
Early Splatoon graphics
In the game's files there are early versions of clothes and weapons from Splatoon.
