Super Mario games have always been a part of the majority of gamer’s childhood and hold valuable memories to everyone. A YouTuber that goes by the name InfernoPlus, managed to create a game out of the classic Super Mario game and changed into a “Battle Royal” game, it was able to hold 99 players in one game.

Seeing at how much “Battle Royal” genre games have been popular lately, and the fact that InfernoPlus managed to turn a Mario game into a battle royal, it received a lot of attention and many players rushed to try it out.

That, of course, didn’t sit well with Nintendo, as it didn’t take long before the game faced a copyright notice, in response InfernoPlus was forced to tweak the game, changing the name of the character to “Infringio” who wore a red shirt and hopped around a lot as Mario would. The similarities were still too strong even after changing other parts of the game it was just not enough.

The game was shut down and on the site where the game used to be playable on shows an apology message informing everyone that the game had to be taken down due to copyright infringements.
