Nintendo has announced that Link’s Awakening will be taken down

Nintendo has taken down a fan-made project for Link’s Awakening DX HD because of copyright violators.

Nintendo has sent a takedown notice for the fan-made project, Link’s Awakening DX HD, in keeping with its strong stance on intellectual property protection. The gaming giant has accused the remake of infringing on its copyrights due to its high-definition graphics, 120 frames per second scrolling, widescreen compatibility, and wider perspective of Koholint Island.

The notification is sent to, the site where the project is being distributed, and it states that Link’s Awakening DX HD violates Nintendo’s copyrights in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. The paper strongly suggests that the download link and information page for the fan-made game be removed immediately.

Please delete the download and information page for the infringing game as soon as possible,” the notification states. It is my firm conviction that neither the owner nor any agent of the intellectual property has granted permission for the use of the content in question.

It is well known that Nintendo takes a proactive approach to protecting its intellectual property. If a fan project uses the firm’s copyrighted content without permission, the corporation will pursue legal action. This follows in the footsteps of other cases where Nintendo has used legal action to defend its famous brands.

There have been a variety of responses from gamers to the announcement of the removal. Fans are divided over the project’s cancellation, with some expressing sadness and others recognizing Nintendo’s right to preserve its IP. Proponents of opposing viewpoints have taken to online discussion groups and social media to air their grievances.

After Link’s Awakening DX HD was taken down, it’s natural to wonder what will happen to other fan-made projects and how vulnerable they are in the game industry. Fans should take note that the original copyright holders may take legal action against even the most well-meaning attempts to improve or rethink popular games.
