Super Mario 64 Online Hit with Copyright Strikes from Nintendo

Super Mario 64 Online – a fan project, which lets players explore and compete together in the classic platformer – has been hit with copyright strikes from Nintendo. You can’t download the game, or even watch videos of gameplay footage.

“They took down my videos for containing their ‘audiovisual content,’ meaning Mario 64 gameplay and Mario 64 music.” Modder Kaze Emanuar told Kotaku. “They even took down videos without Mario 64 music too though. The exact same goes for my Patreon. They didn’t personally message me, I’ve only received a ton of emails that things had been removed from YouTube/Patreon [Tuesday] morning. They seem to have targeted the ‘Super Mario 64 Online’ videos especially, as every single one of them has disappeared from my channel.”

Emanuar’s hack allowed 24 players to simultaneously explore the 1996 platformer Super Mario 64. Players could take control of a host of characters that didn’t appear in the original game too, including Waluigi.

The creator went on to add that he hadn’t yet received cease-and-desists from Nintnedo – just the copyright strikes. He believes that the imminent release of Super Mario Odyssey has the company clamping down.

“I might wait until after Odyssey before resuming development, in hope that it doesn’t come to a C&D, at which point development would be rather dangerous and would have to be kept a secret.”

Nintendo have yet to comment.

im glad Nintendo is in the console business. It is the only unique system atm without the switch all we have are mini PC's. Nintendo is pushing innovation. As a gamer that should be considered a good thing.

I'm glad they are as well, if only they would make better use of some of the amazing IP's they have.
