Everyone knows this Nintendo He doesn’t like piracy in the least. In fact, they are so strict in their stance that they have launched themselves, on several occasions, against sites promoting the consumption of products that they perceive as infringing their intellectual property. Now, Big N has taken a hit against illegality once again by acquiring a popular indie gaming site Remove hundreds of games that use original materials, All of them without the corresponding permissions.
The respective portal is Shake up games, A site where indie developers can post their games so that visitors can play them. These titles generally consist of fan-made projects that, in their own way, pay homage to their favorite video games through recreation or even remastered versions of the original titles they were inspired by. And there is a reason exactly Nintendo I decided to take action to remove them.
In total, 379 games have been removed from the siteWith a “pause and desist”, those in Kyoto asked the site to withdraw a total of 379 franchise-based games Such as Super Mario, Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, and even Super Smash Bros .. They state in the document that these projects use their own material such as music, character models, or background stage, and even some of them consist of just copies or modifications of their original games. They also claim to generate a certain revenue by showing ads during their loading screens.
Shake up games He responded to an order Nintendo Each of the games the company claimed it was for has withdrawn, all with informing the creators of the reason for the removal. While some of them have taken this in good light, there have been others who claim that they will reload it elsewhere.
This action adds to a long list Nintendo It’s been done for several years now. It must be remembered that in 2016 Big N was also launched against Shake up games For the same reason, and on that occasion he managed to hide more than 500 games from his portal. With this background, the Japanese company is supposed to once again take action on this matter when it deems it necessary.
