Nintendo has the makers of The Missing Link summoned to take the game offline, writes TorrentFreak Tuesday. Nintendo says the fan-made Zeldagame infringes copyrights.

The Missing Link was made on the game foundation of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the first Zelda game with 3D graphics. Fans made a sequel to the game, which bridges the story technically Ocarina of Time (1998) and its sequel Majora’s Mask from 2000.

The fan game has been downloadable and playable on (emulators of) the Nintendo 64 and Wii since the summer. The game was offered on developer platform GitHub, but has been taken offline following a complaint from Nintendo.

On the Zeldagames are copyrighted. For example, storylines and characters are protected. “Nintendo has reviewed the material and does not consider it fair use of its proprietary work,” the GitHub-page. Nintendo has also taken the game’s website offline.

The fans also made other games with Nintendo games as a starting point. For example, they worked on an online version of Super Mario 64 and a remake of it Donkey Kong. Nintendo also had those games taken offline. No lawsuit has been filed.
