Nintendo have stomped their foot down on the project of one Josh Goldberg, a junior at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute who re-created the original Super Mario with all original features in tact.
According to Goldberg, his in-browser version of Super Mario has attracted an average of 300,000 visitors a day, an unbelievable number.
However, this also had the issue of highlighting the browser to Nintendo, who have asked Goldberg to remove the game as it infringes upon, “its intellectual properly rights”.
Believing that his project would never reach viral status, Goldberg has been taken a back as to how to proceed with the case.
“I don’t know what Nintendo is going to do. I’ve avoided using any Nintendo assets other than the IP for the game itself. I honestly don’t know what to do in this situation.”
Every asset of the game has been created individually by Goldberg with each fragment painstakingly made by Goldberg himself. The browser version of the game is still available if you wish to see what the fuss is all about. What do you think of this emerging problem, should Goldberg be allowed to hold onto his project?
