Capcom, Nintendo partner up for Piracy Fighting Adventure II: Sue Harder

By Nathan Grayson, Thursday, 15 October 2009 02:30 GMT


Nintendo, Capcom, and 53 other “unspecified” game publishers are on the legal warpath again, this time with their sights firmly set on four R4 cart sellers. R4 carts, in case you hadn’t heard, were outlawed in Japan earlier this year. But then, the law’s never really been much of an issue for pirates, now has it?

Capcom claims that, despite a Tokyo court’s earlier anti-R4 ruling, this group of dealers won’t stop hawking their piracy prone wares. In Capcom’s own words, they “ignore our warnings” and “[did] not show any sincere response.” Hopefully, then, a lawsuit will get their attention.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
