Nintendo has issued multiple DMCA takedowns targeting mods hosted on the popular community site GameBanana. According to member ‘Waikuteru,’ over 60 DMCA takedowns were issued within a few days, with 40 directed at their own mods. This wave of takedowns has left Waikuteru’s GameBanana profile devoid of any mod submissions. The targeted mods include a variety of custom content for popular Nintendo titles. Notably, mods for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, such as a randomizer and custom maps like Lon Lon Ranch and Skyview Temple, have been affected. Additionally, mods for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have also been targeted. When visiting the mod pages in question, users are now met with a message stating that the content has been removed due to a verifiable DMCA takedown request.

Waikuteru has expressed interest in issuing a counter notice, citing doubts about the authenticity of the takedowns. If the takedowns are genuine, Nintendo would have 14 days to respond. In the interim, Waikuteru has uploaded the Zelda mods in question onto MEGA.
