It's likely very possible using the leaked source code, but legally it's somewhat unwise. Unlike building an emulator, or recreating the game from your own code and assets, using the leaked source code in ANY way is highly illegal. Roms are technically illegal but only if you don't own the original disc/cart which is hard for law enforcement to prove (and the costs to prove it likely aren't worth the trouble).
Using leaked source code, however, IS easy to prove. And while having this game pulled from access shortly after release would be uncool, the truth is that the types of revivals we do here are a legal grey area. Bringing the noise from Nintendo and the law could have repurcusions.
I'd be very interested, of course, and think technically it's fine but legally is where the question lies
