Nintendo isn’t fooling around with pirates

, | News

Nintendo of America has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against RomUniverse, a site that offers members downloads of pirated media, including Nintendo games. According to the California court filing, members of RomUniverse paid $30 a year to download Nintendo Switch and 3DS ROMs. Nintendo claims the files were downloaded hundreds of thousands of times. The publisher seeks $150,000 for each copyright infringement, and $2 million for each trademark violation. It’s at least a jillion Pokemon Go coins.

“The best romsite in the universe.”

Last year, Nintendo won its case against the owners of similar pirate sites LoveROMs.com and LoveRETRO.co with a $12 million judgment.
