Talk:List of Mario knockoffs acknowledged by Nintendo

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

The Giana Sister's part should be removed since it is a online game. Goombob NewMicroGoomba.png 19:03, 23 July 2013 (EDT)

It's not, it's on Commodore 64.

Even if it was online, we'd still keep it because it's a game officially acknowledged by Nintendo. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 01:10, 24 July 2013 (EDT)

Super Mario Bros. X[edit]

The C&D the game author received was actually because Nintendo wanted the domain name for the website where he was hosting his game. MFGG has been hosting free unauthorized Mario knockoffs for almost 15 years and has even been mentioned on TV and nobody else there has ever gotten a C&D from Nintendo. I'm going to see if I can get a source on the nature of the game's C&D. - Puddin(T|C) EC3SN.gif

Hence why the article said "Redigit claimed". But if you get a better source than a "claim", then it's a great thing. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:17, 16 May 2014 (EDT)
Redigit only claimed that he got a C&D, but it was never confirm. Fans speculate he was sick of the fanbase and made it up so he would be left alone. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 21:01, 16 May 2014 (EDT)
Mario: Check your edit histories. I made this complaint on 18:30, May 16th. Glowsquid added "claimed" to the article AFTER my comment (his edit was at 18:40, May 16th.) I'm fine with the way the article is worded now. (I am still a little annoyed that most people actually believe the guy got a C&D from Nintendo when no proof was ever provided, but that's besides the point.) - Puddin(T|C) EC3SN.gif


As SiFi brought up, how should this page be organized? I'm thinking either alphabetically or chronically. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:27, 22 August 2014 (EDT)

I'm for chronogically myself. --Glowsquid (talk) 17:05, 22 August 2014 (EDT)
Any other opinions? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 18:02, 22 August 2014 (EDT)
With the glitch pages being arranged in alphabetical order I feel pages like this should also be in alphabetical order. But as long as the information is presented in a logical way I'm happy. Yoshi876 (talk)

Project M?[edit]

Has Nintendo made acknowledged the existence of the Smash mod? The PM article on SmashWiki says a few things about it:

Should it be added to this list?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by FGarcia (talk).

I know the word "acknowledged" has some wiggle room (and it probably wasn't the best choice in retrospect), but when I proposed the concept of this page on proposals, what I had in mind was fan games/bootlegs that were taken down or had received message from Nintendo or one of its hired legal firms directly. Just censoring the name of the mod without going after it is a bit of a weak fit, imo. --Glowsquid (talk) 16:12, 18 November 2016 (EST)
As far as I know, there hasn't been an official response. It even says so on the link you put there. So, doesn't belong here anyhow. If there were an official response, it would likely go on List of Mario-related controversies as, given Nintendo's history with legal asshattery, it will show backlash.

I think the only official response to Project M is through Miiverse. If users use the abbreviation "PM" or outright say the name, they will be banned (either momentarily or indefinitely, I don't remember) for discussing "criminal activity." Unfortunately, this has resulted in erroneous bans such as abbreviating "Paper Mario" or for the time of day from noon to midnight. It'll also result in some problems should my Power Master series have a Miiverse page in the future... The "criminal activity" part pretty much shows Nintendo's stand on Project M. EDIT: The thing is, this isn't a Mario knockoff. It's a Smash Bros. knockoff. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:42, 18 November 2016 (EST)
Yes, but I wouldn't consider that an official action per se. Anyhow, I don't even think this is a knockoff (as the word implies, knockoffs are standalone games that are often bootlegts). It's a game modification that requires the original base game to work at all. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:56, 18 November 2016 (EST)
...Right. "Knockoff" is the wrong word to use here. It's a mod, and I don't think Nintendo really cares for those much. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:57, 18 November 2016 (EST)
I get that it's more a Smash Bros. knockoff than a Mario one, but you guys do cover Smash significantly in this wiki and so I figured it might have a place here under the "Fan projects" section. The Miiverse bans do say something about Nintendo's thoughts on PM, and I believe that during one E3 Reggie Fils-Aime or some other person responded to one's question concerning the mod. In the end I wouldn't be opposed to adding it to the article. FGarcia (talk) 00:21, 30 November 2016 (EST)

ROM hacks[edit]

I just want to ask do ROM hacks count? because I want to add to this article. King boo dsfs.pngMKDSFTalk!King boo dsfs.png

Only if they have been acknowledged by Nintendo - takedown requests and copyright claims apply. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 13:55, 10 September 2017 (EDT)

Adding Super Mario Bros. 35 in Mario Royale Section?[edit]

Mario Royale, a battle royale based game was completely removed due to copyright but Nintendo officialy made an Super Mario Bros. based battle royale. If I make sentence to this section? CrazyUberEngineer (talk) 12:54, September 9, 2020 (EDT)

What does "If I make sentence to this section?" mean? If it means "Can I add it?" or something similar to that, than yes. --JumpPumpkinPlant SMW.pngDarkNightSMW Pumpkin Plant.png (Boo!) 12:58, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
Or Can I add it? CrazyUberEngineer (talk) 14:33, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
Yes. --JumpPumpkinPlant SMW.pngDarkNightSMW Pumpkin Plant.png (Boo!) 15:15, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
