A Reddit user has shared a screenshot of custom content showing PlayStation character portraits in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
A decidedly devious Animal Crossing: New Horizons player decided to add PlayStation content to Animal Crossing. No one can deny that Nintendo is very, very, very particular about who can and cannot use their IPs. But, they’re somewhat of an outlier. Sure, you could be sued for making a fan game by anyone, but Nintendo is the most notorious for it.
Redditor 7emperor790 shared an image of their home which was decked out with pixelated photos of notable PlayStation characters like Nathan Drake, Ellie from The Last of Us, Sam Bridges, Kratos, and more. Odds are that will remain there with no complaints from the rival game company.
It’s been a long-known thing that Nintendo is very sensitive about the people who use their assets. They’ve shut down fan games, software, ROM sites, and even copyright struck YouTube channels that use their IPs – even in let’s play forms – under most any circumstances. Nintendo filed a copyright complaint to Sony over their game creation system, Dreams, last month.
Streamer Piece of Craft revealed on Twitter he got an email from Sony’s legal team indicating that Nintendo objected to the use of Super Mario in his project. The project had to be halted. The streamer, though, figured there was a good chance Nintendo would pull something like it.
To let yourself have this custom ability, all you need to do is download the Nintendo Online app to your phone, turn on Nooklink, and scan QR codes. It’s pretty much simple as that.
What do you think of this? Do you wish you thought of it first?
