Not the first project to get nixed by Nintendo, Metroid Fan Film Shutdown by nintendo http://www.screwattack.com/news/ninte...
I have witnessed a lot of stupid responses to things such as the power rangers bootleg fan film and recently the starfox animated parody that was recently snubbed by nintendo. Things are still on track and the names have since been changed which nintendo seems to be fine with, however it just feeds into my negative feelings towards japanese game companies and their practices. This video is a response to how it seems that they don't care about what fans want, will keep shoveling the same shit and beat that dead horse until it's just a pool of chunky red waste on the bat. It just confuses me to see a company like nintendo, koonami, and sega just have the bottom line in mind and not realize when it comes to entertainment products, it is a symbiotic relationship between customer and supplier. We give you money to provide us entertainment, a service. We may like your service so much that we will praise it with fan art, films, music, and even fan made games. Aside from making limited prints of non-parody art pieces there is really no room for shenanigans like shutting down tributes to our beloved entertainment unless of course, that musician starts selling cds of non-remixed music covers, fan games, or movies.
Imagine if Sega or capcom sued over the fan films Blue Core made of megaman or sonic. Or nintendo over this starfox parody. It seems people are starting to be soured by these companies. Koonami is off making gambling machines of Silent Hill, Sega couldn't even successfully reinvent sonic, and Nintendo's wii-u will probably be dead in a year or less. Maybe they can start paying attention to their fan base a little more, unfortunately for them they seem to ignore the fact that the bulk of their market that keeps them a float is outside of their island.
