As inevitable as Peach getting kidnapped by Bowser, the 4K PC port of Super Mario 64 released last week has found itself the target of Nintendo’s litigious ire.

This version of Mario 64 was a direct port made possible by reverse engineering the game’s source code, which enabled 4K resolution, ultra-widescreen support, and modern controller advancements.

The law firm Wildwood Law Group, LLC, which has worked for Nintendo in the past for similar IP issues, sent notices to Google in an effort to have the port pulled offline. Similarly, some videos of said port have been pulled from YouTube.

This being the internet, the game can still be found in some places, but Nintendo isn’t sitting down for this one, especially with the rumors of the various Mario remasters and remakes coming this year.
