Report: Nintendo’s NX has entered production

Nintendo NX

Nintendo kills off 500 fan games that use Mario, Zelda or Pokemon characters

Nintendo DMCA Fan Games

Whether it's a YouTube video or a fan game paying homage to one of the company's classic franchises, sooner or later, there's going to be a takedown notice involved.
