Last month, we mentioned the mail sent to Nintendo, with the objective to know if they want to close the Mod or not. After a little wait, they’ve answered with a message that looks like a standard message, saying that they can’t give authorizations for using Nintendo copyrighted contents. But, there is nothing about forbidding continuing to work on Mario Kart Source. It’s why we decided to continue to create this Mod with the Mario theme. Nintendo know us (at least, we are sure now) and It don’t like they’re worrying a lot about us. Since we never used and will never use original content ripped from their games (all files used by the Mod like 3D models, textures, sounds... are remade from scratch), and since we’re trying to do the best about the visual side of the Mod (we don’t want to make bad-looking stuff), we don’t see why Nintendo would close it. So, Mario Kart Source stays Mario Kart Source!
Finally, we want to thank everybody who voted for us at the MOTY 2010 on Moddb . Even if we didn’t pass the top 100 round, it show us that people want to see more new progress and a playable beta as soon as possible. We know that, and we’re trying to do everything for that, but keep in mind that we’re only amateur developers. Thanks to anyone who supported us after the latest news too!
Thanks for your support,
The MKS Team
