    Nintedo is apparently removing games off of ROM websites as well as the freeshop.

    Title of Vid :NINTENDO DMCAing EVERY MAINSTREAM Title from ROM Websites & MH: XX Dissapears
    Video: (not mine)

    -a rom site- doesnt have Nintendo games to download:
    https://gyazo.com/0f22d0a35998bc5af079b916be803a18

    EDIT:
    FROM Ziggyhacks
    Everyone:
    To be clear, Nintendo hasn't removed any games from their servers. This means that FreeShop is still available for every game previously listed unless the FreeShop owners removed a game. Let's not chastise the owner for his small mistake, and keep in mind that he also preemptively apologized.

    I noticed this in both the Love and Paradise sites.
    Most popular titles are starting to disappear.
    The Cool site was the first to remove everything Nintendo related some years ago (2013).

    What the fuck are they doing?!
    They are fucking up with the preservation of digital media and history as a whole for fuck's sake.
    As a Romhacker myself, this is getting in my fucking nerves, as I now have to spend 30+ mins looking for the correct base ROM for my hacks... If I do happen to find them.

    I've never really like any direction Nintendo goes. They still keep games that are 3 years old fullprice or close to it. They are very money hungry, and this is just another shitty thing for them to do.

    I guess they're finally starting to realize that no one wants to buy 20-year old games for the 15th time, so they're attempting to take down the most popular alternative.

    All of these games have been backed up countless times, and much more accurately than most of the copies on most of these sites. They'll still be available to anyone willing to find them.

    I knew there was something wrong with the nintendo roms disappearing on Friday... They DMCA'd them at a weird time. If I were them, this should've been done years ago.

    I hope society as a whole gets together and upload way more ROM sites than Nintendo can handle.
    We have to show them media preservation should not be affected by money whores.

    no matter what they do, they cant touch the enctitlekeys.bin on all of your sd ards, meaning that all the freeshop games we have atm are here to stay forever. The worst they could do is prevent all ways of obtaining a more up to date version of enctitlekeys.bin by shutting down certain websites. there is nothing to worry about.

    Should we begin to back up our roms and make a mass MEGA host?

    I highly encourage everyone who can do that to do so.
    Get as many entire Nintendo console libraries as possible and back them up in a safe place.
    Share them everywhere you can.

    All of them.
    NES/SNES/N64/GC/Wii/GB/GBC/GBA/NDS.
    They have gone too far now.

    I will not condone this bullshit of a move on the emulation and hacking community.

    Fairly certain they didn't remove anything from freeShop? How would they even do that?

    Well now we're gonna have to protect the history of these games, as Paradise still has a lot of items, I recommend uploading all that you have to a private dropbox, share them as much as possible, and uploading them to https://archive.org/
