Well, that was quick, wasn’t it?
But now Nintendo has asked the owners of the site to take it down, and they’ve unfortunately complied. Here’s the message:
Nintendo asked us to remove this site for copyright infringement. I guess Zelda30Tribute was a little too pixel perfect 🙂 We’re sad about that, but we get it. We started this project because we love Nintendo and the joy they have given us throughout the years. From the start of development, we knew this result could potentially happen. Nintendo has every right to protect their IP. No complaints from us, we had a blast working on this tribute and made some friends along the way.
Either way, thanks Nintendo. Thanks for ruining yet another great fan project like this, just days after it became big. Why not just take advantage of the free publicity for once in your goddamned lives?
What do you think about this project being taken down? And if you managed to play it beforehand, what did you think of the game in general?
