Needless to say, the company is entirely in its right to demand these games be taken off the Web. That was the case for No Mario's Sky, which ended up being something like a basic platformer that let you fly off world so you could stomp more goombas.

Game Jolt also released a statement regarding the DMCA takedown notices from Nintendo. Whether Nintendo will continue to send cease and desist notifications to ASMB Games or not though, I think the studio got its point across.

The developers behind a game called No Mario's Sky based on Nintendo character have made a decision to rename their game as DMCA's Sky after being threatened with legal action by Nintendo. Just as swiftly as No Mario's Sky disappeared, a replacement has emerged. Such changes include replacing coins with green gems, replacing Princess Peach with a character by the name of Princess Mango and tweaking several of the game's character sprites.
