Another Take Down To Free Will As DMCA Shuts Down The Fan-made Metroid II Remake

Last Month it Was Kickass now its the Fan-made Metroid II

A fan-made remake of Metroid 2 has been scrubbed off the internet just two days after it was released, when Nintendo sent the developers a takedown order. It was finished and offered as a free game on Saturday on the creator’s website, Project AM2R, but quicker than you could say “legal team” Nintendo had sent a DMCA order to those responsible. The creators have since removed all download links to the game. It’s all very sad and predictable. But the programmer behind the remake is being characteristically gracious.

The game was released this week and you can watch a playthrough below.

Nintendo issued a statement to the gaming news website Polygon about its request:

Nintendo‘s broad library of characters, products, and brands are enjoyed by people around the world, and we appreciate the passion of our fans. But just as Nintendo respects the intellectual property rights of others, we must also protect our own characters, trademarks and other content. The unapproved use of Nintendo‘s intellectual property can weaken our ability to protect and preserve it, or to possibly use it for new projects.
