Nintendo has managed to get YouTube videos of a Mario NFT gambling fan game taken down

It isn’t surprising to see that Nintendo has been trying to take down a Nintendo-related fan game, as Nintendo has done this many times over the years, but it may surprise you a little to find out what the latest example of this pattern is. In fact, this time, you might not even be upset that this happened.

You see, it has been discovered that Nintendo has been getting gameplay videos removed that promote a Mario fan game where players gamble with crypo-currency NFTs. The project’s administrator has since acknowledged that this is, indeed, Nintendo’s doing. However, they also heavily defended the game, even calling it a “cool indie concept”, and telling “all the Nintendo simps having a panic attack, fear not. When we go live the entire game will have custom art with none of the original Nintendo fanmade sprites. This was just a proof of concept. The engine is custom made and will be used for other original games.”

As stated earlier in this post, there may be some of you that are not even that upset with this fan game being taken down by Nintendo. NFTs are a form of crypto-currency that has been receiving a lot of criticism for harnessing amounts of data that are so extreme, it actually harms the environment. Nevertheless, the game itself has not been taken down yet, only some YouTube gameplay videos. If Nintendo’s actions against the team increase, we’ll let you know.

    1. The whole project wouldn’t get DMCA, just these video as it’s considered using anothers IP to increase attention for your product, which you need to make a licensing deal for.

    2. You know, I wouldn’t be surprise if people still continues to used Nintendo IPs just to make money off of it to gain attention or popularly on social witch is basically not a good idea for people to gain attention like that just to used gaming companies IPs for their content to make money off of their concepts. This dude right here will get a DMCA whatsoever.

  1. “But it’s just the concept video”. It’s still using other people’s IPs in advertisement to gain more recognition for your product. If you plan to make it an actual concept with actual money involved this is the reason Nintendo pulled it. There’s a reason you don’t see even a small company use Mario characters to show off the technology they are working on in the back.

    1. And your right I’m just saying I wish he got dmca if he released it because he’s so full of himself, I already know he says it won’t have any iconic nintendo characters and that it was a “cool indie project” but his statement literally sounds like a cover up story for a getaway.

      1. Yeah. You are correct. What he said is basically a sob story just to get money out of Nintendo fan game project. To be honest with you, I also believe that this guy wants to take everything from Nintendo by using their characters just to draw attention to himself. How pathetic. Nintendo should take this down right away.

  2. Probably the first time I’ve agreed with Nintendo’s decision to take down a fan game/video.
    This guy sounds like a stuck-up douchebag and deserves the inevitable DMCA coming his way.

  3. This guy is nothing but a filthy slob. DMCA will be coming for him sooner or later. Because that guy story is just basically a sob story just to get away on using Nintendo IPs for money. A lot of weird people in the world always get away with everything.

    1. Yeah like I have no idea how crypto just became more relevant again I remember it being pretty big around 2017-2019 hearing and seeing it be alot more advertise as currency for the future, I believe the CEO went through a lawsuit years ago my mind is honestly fuzzy on the topic tbh.

  4. You wanna know what’s funny? Games like Shovel Knight, Shantae, and Stardew Valley all used their own assets and didn’t try to use something that’s not there’s and still managed to grow a damn good following with a loyal fanbase.
    What’s this guy’s excuse?
