The fans who earlier this week made available a browser-based 3D remake of the original Legend of Zelda have taken down the playable game from the site zelda30tribute.com. The project’s creators, known as Scott and Mike, said that Nintendo asked them to take down the site due to copyright infringement.
The creators joked that their tribute was “a little too pixel perfect” and thanked everyone who was able to play their tribute game, which they claim amounted to a “half million folks.” Scott and Mike assured all fans of their re-imagining of the NES classic that they have “future projects” in the works and will be providing news and updates on such projects on social media.
When the game first launched earlier this week, it was met with widespread praise from Zelda fans, who are probably pretty bummed right now that they won’t have the chance to play the completed version of this tribute.
