The Big N Is On The Move

So this is a thing.  The Big N has done similar stuff in the past but looks like they're targeting stuff one website at a time.


I just got back into the scene too.



What are everyone's thoughts here on this?

This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

Looks like Universe is yet another romsite that charged money for premium accounts.  That's a no-no on any level; if not Nintendo, someone else could've shot them down pretty easily.

I'll bet it's some idiot who don't realize that fan translation is personal use only.

That has nothing to do with the links in the first post..?

You're right. That has nothing to do with the links in the first post.

Not entirely related, but I just saw this the other day: https://twitter.com/forestillusion/status/1341222991619792897

Like I said before, that's the biggest issue with Nintendo in recent years, they're bullies.

You said it. They've taken down YouTube videos, too. Examples include episodes of animated media relating to franchises like Kirby and Pokemon (the latter being especially problematic due to copyright concerns with SHOPRO, who also helped make a series Nintendo would eventually make games of, Hamtaro), and music tracks lifted directly from their games, even those extended to play for 30 minutes straight.
