Hasbro Lawyers Stable My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic Fan Project

Since the summer of 2011 a small group of fans calling themselves Mane6 have been toiling away at a fighting game based on the cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Working from a rudimentary knowledge of 2D Fighter Maker 2002, they built the fan project into a phenomenon unto itself. They scouted sound-alike voice actresses, had composers create original music, and painstakingly balanced and polished the fighting engine to a professional shine. Last month My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic was in the running to be featured at the 2013 Evo fighting game tournament.

Today Mane6 announced that they had received a cease and desist letter from Hasbro. They've pulled all content from their website, stripped their YouTube and Twitch.Tv accounts, and closed up shop. (My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic, PC)
