Nintendo Takes Down Super Mario 64 Unity Remake




/ 5 years ago

In a move that will shock no one, Nintendo has issued a copyright infringement notice against the remake of Super Mario 64 built by a fan using the Unity game engine. The remake, which was playable within an internet browser, was only one level and available for free, but Nintendo obviously don’t like being shown up.

Nintendo’s lawyers send the copyright notice to Cloudflare, which had been hosting the game. The notice reads:

“The copyrighted work at issue is Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 video game (U.S. Copyright Reg. No. PA0000788138), including but not limited to the audiovisual work, computer program, music, and fictional character depictions. The web site at http://mario64-erik.u85.net/Web.html displays, and allows users to play, an electronic game that makes unauthorized use of copyright-protected features of Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 video game. Nintendo requests that CloudFlare, Inc. immediately disable public access to http://mario64-erik.u85.net/Web.”

Though Cloudflare has pulled the game, it seems that, with a bit of searching, it can still be found for download from “other providers”, as is the enhanced version we reported on a few days ago.
