I guess we'll see. Maybe they're thinking third parties will carry them though, but I have to think they'd want to have something to leave an impression on potential consumers, especially when the other guys are bringing their big guns.

NIntendo can't count on third parties for anything! What the hell are they doing? Stop scaring me Ninty!

Welp, Now Nintendo's Going After Sheet Music

It should come as no surprise that Nintendo is pretty protective regarding its IP. Going after emulators, ROM hacks, and reproductions is one thing, but it looks like the firm is starting to aim its sights on something rather surprising: sheet music.

Nintendo sure knows how to take the fun out of everything.

this reminds me of that nintendo facebook social media question where they asked people what their favourite nintendo song was and people posted yt links. EVERY SINGLE ONE WAS TAKEN DOWN

You want to kill a party fast just invite Nintendo. But we are talking about a company who took down pictures of a strategy guide that has never appeared in the west. You don't see Square taking down music or sheet music to Aerith's theme, Tifa's theme, June Mermaid. Memorable tunes stick with fans to great games. Nintendo games have fans that have been routed since the NES. People have Youtube vids showing how to play Zelda's lullaby on piano, violin or my favorite the harp. Nintendo taking down sheet music or those curious about a Japanese strategy guide makes Nintendo look like an asshole to those fans.

Torrent and Usenet is the way. Imagine if all these people just share game music, roms, fan remakes in that way instead of on a website. Nintendo would be so helpless and cannot do anything we all win LOL

its abit ridiculous at this point.

PRIMORDUS8h ago

Out of spite those people should now out put all that music in a torrent upload and share it (I will seed for them🤣) Then email Nintendo the link to it lol. Good luck taking down a torrent. Torrents and Usenet is the only way to get around anything Nintendo tries to take down because they can't. This is the way to preserve games and game music, without anyone telling you otherwise.

Could care less. I use consoles to play games not for social media.

Social garbage should be abandoned altogether.. the world is stupid since these things got introduced

senorfartcushion8d ago

I would say YouTube was more to blame for this weird unrest we are seeing at the minute. That platform has given license to some of the stupidest people to build advice channels for kids growing through their formative learning years. It's no wonder there are so many incels around.

The world was stupid before that. Social media just let you see it.

It’s for posting content like game captures, not responding to your boo’s pool pictures.

But F twitter anyway

CrashMania8d ago

And nothing of value was lost, that site is a cesspit.
