Just go to show that patents and copyright are to long. If you don;t change or upgrade a video game in eight years you shouldn't have control of a look alike game. Look at the difference from Valve black mesa was a fan driven new leg of half life and valve actually help and now you can play it with out the copyright police whining at your door.

While it would take some effort by Nintendo to coordinate with the authors to bring the game to legal compliance, it would have been a huge win for both parties.
