Mario, Yoshi, other Nintendo characters now flooding Windows app store

The Windows 8 app market has struggled to gain any real traction, dwarfed by the gigantic iOS and Android app stores. But it does seem to have a secret edge over the larger app markets: a total lack of IP protection! Right now, some of the hottest new apps on Windows are called Mario Jump, Yoshijump and Pokemon Attack. And yes, they do use the popular Nintendo characters from the games we all know and love. The apps seem very odd — the Mario game seems to be combining a photorealistic sky backdrop with 1980s style platforms. Bowser Town Defense features an equally weird graphical style. (Nintendo, PC)

Expect a press comment from Nintendo soon.

We did a story like this on Era's Adventure, basically the guy bought the character thinking the guy he was dealing with was actually able to sell the IP to him; which he wasn't.
