Nintendo is famous for aggressively protecting its IPs and anyone who tries to use its assets to create a remake or a new video game, the company slams a DMCA notice.

The latest to bite the dust is a Metroid 2 fan remake. The game first appeared online last month under the title “Another Metroid 2 Remake.”

Metroid 2 fan remake received an official take down request soon after its developer revealed its existence. Now, a month has past and Nintendo has sent a DMCA notice to the maker of Another Metroid 2 Remake.


Nintendo of America, Inc. has filed a takedown request under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). I received the request on my personal email, so I’m complying with their requests. There will be no more AM2R updates, and no more releases under any platform. Thank you for the support during all these years

Such a reaction was always expected from Nintendo so there is nothing to be surprised about. However, such remake attempts will always be there. Nintendo leaves many of its beloved IPs on the shelf for long stretches of time which results in fan remakes.

Nintendo mainly focuses on Mario, Pokemon and Zelda while games like Metroid sit on the sideline for too long.

Anyways, Metroid fans can go ahead and dip their head in Nostalgia by picking up a game called ReCore. It is created by the people who worked on Metroid and bears many similarities in terms of gameplay and design. ReCore will not release for Nintendo platform though.

The game is coming out later this month for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Releasing under Xbox Play Anywhere, players can cross buy this title.
