Capcom recently declined to renew their hostile takeover defense, leading many to speculate whether the long-time gaming company will close and sell its assets to another studio. Should Nintendo be the one to take the plunge?
Mario Tennis: Power Tour was released on Wii U Virtual Console in Europe on June 26, 2014 and in North America on July 3, 2014.

After the release of Super Mario 3D Land, the animal rights group PETA created a website and Flash game entitled "Mario Kills Tanooki" (pictured) to promote their anti-fur campaign with regard to the live skinning of raccoon dogs or tanukis. The site implied that Super Mario 3D Land was promoting the use of animal furs as clothing by allowing Mario to use the Tanooki Suit as a power-up, despite the fact that it originated in Super Mario Bros. 3, which was released in 1988 (23 years prior to the release of Super Mario 3D Land). This controversy among the issue resulted in strong backlash from Nintendo.
