Re: Long time no post
Nintendo has experienced a lot of backlash against its copyright-driven takedowns as of late. Although their removal of NES ROMs and SNES ROMs are far less common nowadays (if they exist at all), the Metroid 2 revamp was something that could cause some confusion regarding who owns what properties of the Metroid name and everything else. In this case, it's not so much bullying or control issues, but rather legit issues regarding ownership.
If a fan-made game doesn't become all that popular (which is usually the case), Nintendo simply isn't going to waste their time on it anymore. It's good to see they're at least starting to get their priorities straight.

What I didn't understand is why Nintendo waited until it was essentially finished before doing something. Unless they were really oblivious to it's development. Either way It's out now and once on the internet, there is no taking it down.
