Daily Radar has, until further notice, decided to suspend its coverage of Nintendo games and systems. We’ll continue to cover big news stories and we’re not censoring ourselves, but until an ongoing legal dispute with Nintendo is resolved, this is our safest, simplest option.
This disappoints all of us, readers and writers alike — and frankly, we hope that the matter will be resolved quickly and judiciously so that we can get back to doing what we love — playing and writing about cool new Nintendo games. The current situation has created a great deal more fuss than we’d have liked, but the fact remains, we’re in something of a bind, and there’s not much we at Daily Radar can do about it — that’s up to a bunch of lawyers.
There seems to be a misconception that we, Daily Radar, are doing this to spite Nintendo, ourselves or even our readers. That is simply not the case — this is the clearest way we can think of to deal with the complex nature of the litigation while maintaining our editorial integrity. In truth, this whole situation, for us, is a pain in the posterior that we would like to end as soon as possible. And that is what we’re working toward. Until then, please bear with us, and continue to enjoy the site.
