Nintendo Characters Now Flooding Windows App Store

new_super_mario_bros_2_tanooki_mario

A significant number of key Nintendo franchises have found their way on to the struggling Windows 8 App Store. These mobile orientated games include Mario Jump, Yoshi jump and Pokemon Attack, all of which are clearly using Nintendo IP without permission. It appears as though Microsoft isn’t interested in weeding out Nintendo’s protected intellectual property and is currently content to let it thrive.

          1. Don’t let your nuts get too aroused. You don’t know if they’re even a girl. You can suck on my ball sack if you want to though.

            1. Yes i’m a girl… -_-.
              This site is now being terrorized by a boring nutsack. It’s really gotten worse

              1. Lisa, i have some nice pics of you…wink, wink….some are taken inside a bathroom, wink, wink…u so fake

                    1. Good thing i own a nutcracker, only this time i won’t be eating afterwards :/

                    2. Why are you still her pervert?
                      Hell is still waiting with a nice warm heated seat for your fatass. You went from being sexist to sexually harassing people?

                    3. What does that mean? YOU’RE the outsider here. Seriously, when the fuck did women even learn computers?? Don’t worry, stay here longer and I will ravage you

                    4. Gaming was never only for men, omg shut the hell up sexism is just stupid, i bet you’re a lonely kid that can’t even get a date because you don’t know how to respect everyones rights, honestly you’re the saddest person on here, i’m done replying to you if this is all you’re going to do.

                    5. Seriously people. What are you doing? Women can be gamers or whatever they want. As for you “Jesus Christ” you obviously are a guy who probably is obese and probably just sitting your ass all day doing nothing worthwhile in your life and should just stop breathing. And the rest of you other people not making the situation better should just get up and leave. Seriously. How did something so random occur on a thing about something entirely different? (T_T)”’

          2. Um…they are the richest gaming company right now and have been putting up profits for decades now. You haters need to get educated.

        1. ^ This. Amazing how they like to call Nintendo “kiddie” games, and at the same time, everyone is dying to have them on the other media platforms.

      1. Do not take the name of the greatest man ‘Jesus Christ’ into disrepute. It is annoying and offensive to Christians. Seize and desist. By the way your precious microsoft is leaving the gaming realm.

      2. I believe this fellow is right guys…. even 10 billion dollars cannot save the wii u even with the 3ds doing well Nintendooomed

      3. xbox brand has lost 20 billion dollars

        ps3 lost twice as much as ps1 and ps2 ever made

        wii has profited more than every other gaming device in history combined

        nintendo took 99% of all available industry profit last gen

        ps3 lost 7 billion

        WHOS GOING 3RD PARTY YOU INSANE FREAK

      4. You wish they’d go third party. They have enough money to survive for another 30 or so years, and the 3DS is very successful, and the Wii U is picking up. Going third-party my ass.

      5. That literally will never happen. Even the most hardcore Nintendo haters know that. The day Nintendo go 3rd party is when they are the ONLY company left making games. No Sony, no Microsoft, no Sega, no Retro, no Capcom, no ANYBODY OTHER THEN NINTENDO. Then Nintendo would be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd party since they would be the only ones making games.

  1. You can make a Mario game where he jumps from nut sack to nut sack while rubbing Pikachu’s testicles after he rescues the Princess,

      1. You know there’s not enough ball sack hangin out everywhere with Nintendo’s gay ass characters and rainbows. They still are fun games though, some of the best.

              1. That was the original intention of the game. It was a game charged with the signs of gay culture, and Luigi and Mario were a gay couple trying to brave a society that rejects them:

              2. You’re a nutsack and yet you continue to think everything is gay? Is Spock still “handling” his fellow colleagues with pleasure?

                1. you know I wrote a little song one year. It goes like this:
                  “Well I took a dump in the teacher’s chair
                  Somebody snitched on me.
                  I took a dump in my sister’s bed.
                  Somebody snitched on me.

                  Oh where, oh where, will I take a dump next
                  Oh where, where, will I release a fresh duuump next”

      1. Don’t know if butthurt Microdrone, or just sarcastic.
        Would you kindly care to tell me which?

  2. Out of curiosity, I wonder if any of these rip offs are half decent. I have an Iphone, so I’ll have to ask a friend to download some.

      1. Well, that’s what going down from what I hear but I don’t know from the real standing point yet. If capcom was smart, they would bring back most of their former employees and stop this bullshit of “more DLC’s for sale” and favoritism 2 only consoles. As for M$, I know they are suffering but I wouldn’t count them out just yet as well as the PS4, no, wait…I mean xbox400 since they are following the 360 phase now but hey, free games for a year right? A bargan I can go for…so to speak if the dam systems wasn’t so dam expensive along with games. Yes nintendo, I’m even pointing to you on this one. Well that’s what I think but I still buy them anyways.

  3. Pretty dicktwat move.
    Nintendo can go at this through legal course, but in the end of the day, Nintendo would only lose money, unless they can prove that this was intentional by M$.

    1. Nintendo needs to have their IPs pulled from the app store.

      I’m sick of Mario, but it’s a disservice to defame him with this utter shit app. Nintendo Mario games are very high quality, and these apps make him look like a college programmer that’s flunking out of school.

      Basically, Nintendo won’t lose money because people buying this app,…they will lose money because people new to the franchise (very small kids) may think all Mario games suck as bad as the app.

  4. I own a windows 8 phone.
    1.) Mario Jumper is 7 levels below lame. Someone making a buck on the Mario franchise. Seriously, I can’t explain how horrible this app is.
    2.) I think Pokemon Attack is gone. I searched 3 ways. Don’t see it. A lot of fan service and pokedex apps.

    I still agree with the article, in that Microsoft should know better than to release a MARIO app or one of Nintendo’s IP’s.

    On the plus side, Nintendo has burnt out Mario so bad, I don’t think he will even sell apps. :p

    1. Thanks, I saw your post. That was the only Mario game you found? Maybe they were removed, but I heard of at least two others, Mario World Overrun and Super Mario Ghosts.

      1. I’m sure it’s possible they keep changing the name to avoid being pulled all-together? Didn’t see the others, but I’m sure they will come and go to avoid detection. ;)

    2. Mario games IMO are genuinely fun, it’s just the same thing each time. People think Mario being the same is fun but Mario wasn’t fun back then because it was old if you catch my drift.

  5. This will be fixed by the end of the week. If there’s anything Nintendo really hate, it’s when someone make money on their franchises without permission.

  6. HELLO MY FELLOW NINTENDOGAYS HOW ARE YOU DOING?IAM HERE TO TELL THE TRUTH AGAIN ABOUT YOUR SHITTY CONSOLE.(ALL FACTS NO LIE)

    Please Understand.

    1. 1-It did, it just hasn’t done terrifically yet as all the massive main titles have yet come to it.
      2-Yeah it does. Wonderful 101, Zelda, Mario/Luigi U, Rayman, Pikmin, ect.
      3-No.
      4-It’s not, it’s one of my favorite consoles of all time. It just needs more games. EXACT same thing happened with 3ds.
      5-They don’t need to.
      6-Just a reworded point 3, no.
      7-lol what
      8-Obviously trolling. I love steam, but it isn’t ‘THE’ console.
      9-Don’t really agree.
      10-Same points again! It should soon.
      11-This is a very calm reply, just stating how you are incorrect.

      Please Understand.

            1. You shouldn’t be so sure about que future position of the WiiU. There are still some years to go, and 3DS was like Wiiu back at the beginning

        1. I think Jessie was only correcting whatsitsface with the list. Wii u has sold 3 million while virtual boy only sold less than a million.

  7. Wow, I’m suddenly reminded why I stopped visiting this site.
    LOTS of arguing going on for a page dedicated to video game news. I mean, pointless, mean, whiny arguing… there’s enough of that in DC.
    Someday, if we’re lucky, we’ll get a moderator.

    1. Yeah im 29 yo……and i go to this site for the news, like how i went to the arcades to game, or how i went over to my friends to play Mario bros ( atari) …….but what i hate is; this generation of gamers, they dont get it……..its all about specs and who has what…..Im glad im not 13 yo in a age like this one, i wish i could go back to the golden age of gaming….where every game had the same 8bit but different gameplay…..kids are the reason why we get sequal after sequal and no new IPs…..kids like to troll and ruin a new IP, kids like to act tough via internet, kids like to bash on nintendo for not putting out Movie like games……kids like to bully each other over graphics, kids like to act like their actually buying the game, but their mommy and daddy actually pays for everything….kids are the teason why we have DLC, day one DLC, kickstarters, Micro transactions, online only…..kids are ruining what I helped create

      1. And i might go NES this gen……not one ps1,2,3 or xbox,360,one made my thumbs bleed….NOT ONE!!!!! Sick of games that hold your hand so you can take the time out to look at the uber realistic buildings…..

        Nes is the greatest gaming console…..

      2. May I add to that? What this guy here says…IS FACT! People who just buy all because of power over one system to another is really stupid. I’ve gone through the golden age like this guy here…I know what its like. Specs should EVEN COUNT to you unless YOUR A GAME GRAPHIC DESIGNER!!! Graphics? Yeah, they show how beautiful a game can be…but that’s it. What you SHOULD BE worrying about is GAMEPLAY, not just graphics. Without the interface of gameplay, you can’t do jack shit! IP’s…yeah, that’s a different story. Everyone has their own options on what game they was to play. Does that give you the rights to pick on them or hate against that spacific system? NO! And your stupid if you say “yes”. Everyone…has a choice. You can be mature to say something about it rather you hate the game or not, but that doesn’t give anyone the right to bash it. I know because at one point I WAS A FANBOY. I know how it was to stay on one system and criticise others. HELL, wasn’t for my brother showing me my errors, I would still be that fanboy today. I learned that it’s more fun to play other systems, INCLUDING PC, when you can and still keep your home system. Matter of fact, if it wasn’t for Atari or computer engineers back in 1960’s, we wouldn’t have acades, if it wasn’t for atari 2600, turbographics, and/or Apple ATX? We wouldn’t have Nintendo when the gaming revolution was dying…HOW THE FUCK YOU THINK MARIO MADE IT?! HE WAS THE SAVIOR OF THE GAMING COMMUNITY!! Sega helped right along side even though they were again nintendo in the 1990’s. Hell, mater of fact, if it wasn’t for nintendo…you wouldn’t have play station if they didn’t refuse the offer of greater graphics and a better system…thus the play station was born when nintendo refused and Sega was doomed by console. Again, if it wasn’t for nintendo, selling rareware (who ruined their great games), Xbox 360 wouldn’t have a chance in hell.

        You all think about this on who really did what to save your asses from being on one little gaming console and why you should be respecting instead of hating it and trolling it. You have no right in my book.

        There, I’ve said my peace.

  8. HELLO ALL YOU STUPID SHIT DUMB FUCKERS WHO TROLL OR FANBOYS/FANGIRLS OF OTHER SYSTEMS WHO HATE NINTENDO, SNOWMAN HERE GONNA LIGHTEN YOUR MOOD AND KNOW THE REAL FACTS OF WII U

    1)WII U DID NOT SELL.

    Not true…if they didn’t, a profit would have never been made EVEN with…terrible sales

    2)Wii U HAVE NO GAMES.

    Again, not true…may not be alot like other current consoles but more in on the way, pokemon x and y was just released. So was a remake Wind Waker HD

    3)Wii U FANBOYS ARE BUTTHURT

    Actually, those are sonydrones and xbots. If you don’t like the dam system, get the fuck off the site. All you gotta do to save yourself the trouble and “butthurt” of you exsisting failure to troll. Take PcMasterRacer for an example.

    4)WII U IS THE BIGGEST FAILURE IN NINTENDO HYSTORY

    Well, if it was such a failure, why is it beginning to pick up sales? I smell a 3DS repeat here…a redo in history. Watch and learn fools.

    5)NINTENDO DONT CHANGE SHIT ABOUT THE WII U.

    Do they really need too? I mean come on…whats the point of being like the other systems if the big 3 was all equal? If you ask me, they all look the same to me.

    6)WII U(NINTENDOFANBOYS) ARE DAMAGE CONTROLLING ALL DAY.

    Damage control? What’s that? (kidding) Can’t damage controll if it wasn’t true from all the hate. If it is true then let the fanboys/fangirls handle it…you got a life, live it and don’t stoop to that level, trolling is ok…IF…you know how to do it.

    But this is true so congratulations Pc, you finally got one right.

    7)IF YOU DENY MY POINTS YOUR AN IDIOT.

    True if it was really true, this is where your wrong unfortunately.

    8)STEAMBOX KILL ALL NEXT GENERATION CONSOLES:

    Again wrong. It is stated that it can out do any console…but it won’t. Why? Well that price for one…Even Play station was ridiculous on its prices but made sure you can still buy the dam thing. More info, check out the link here

    http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/168161-valves-steam-box-isnt-a-ps4-or-xbox-one-killer

    9)IWATA AND REGGIE NEEDS TO BE FIRED.

    Well…not sure about Iwata…he’s doing a good job. Reggie on the other hand reminds me of bush.

    10)YES DIE 3ds SELL GOOD.BUT THE WII U NOT.

    3DS is still killing really. So uh, what was the arguement again? LOL xD Oh right, the wii u following the 3DS’ steps to success (I know, sounds like damage controll but its FACT).

    11)ANGRY REPLYS Inc.Fact.

    Yes, but not from fanboys…more like…you.

    So YAAAAAAY, you got 2 right out of…lets see…1, 2…6…

    GASP, YOU GOT 2 RIGHT OUT OF 9!! New record MasterPcRACER. Oh that’s PcMasterRacer.

    Thank you teenchampionsam for helping me resay most of the facts THAT ARE TRUE and not fause.

  9. Let me get this right. Trolls say Nintendo is kiddy yet would go through extrems to get their ips on other platforms.

  10. what is this all about like they’re using IP without permission that’s illegal like what the frick microsoft???

  11. This is the most anti semitic, anti gay, sexist, and racist comment section I have ever seen. Congratulations gaming community.

  12. Lovely forum that’s happening here. Just lovely.

    Oh, and Nintendo won’t go third-party. Nintendo have lost about $700 million once in the last 30 years. In the last generation alone, Sony have lost $3.5 billion (and are on the verge of bankruptcy), and Microsoft have lost $8 billion.

    Unlike Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo is making a profit. Nintendo has ¥812.8 billion in its pocket – enough to take a ¥20 billion loss every year until 2052. The company also owns ¥469 billion worth of “premises, equipment and investments” – which wouldn’t run out until 2075. Even after all that, it would still have all of its valuable IP to sell before going out of business.

    In contrast, Microsoft has NEVER made a profit from its Xbox brand – not a single cent.

    The fact that it has allowed unauthorised Nintendo clones to hit the Windows Marketplace just shows what a miserable company Microsoft really is.

  13. Geez. This thread does contain a lot of stupidity. I feel bad for those who are getting all this awkward hate. Anyhow, lets talk about WHAT IS THE POINT OF THE ARTICLE.

    I wonder how bad its going to be for Microsoft. Nintendo is a very successful and highly respected company. Most of the games don’t suck at gameplay, ideas, concepts, and story. This feels like some sort of revenge plot from Microsoft letting the flies in. Anyhow, I was HOPING to be finding some similar thoughts but I end up reading a bunch of sexists, and immature pests that breath the same oxygen as me. I need to clean my surroundings now.
