“To kick off the celebration, Nintendo is working with Starlight Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that brightens the lives of seriously ill children by providing hospitalized kids with entertainment, education and innovative technology. Nintendo will be providing new designs for the foundation’s Starlight Brave Gowns, which help sick kids feel like superstars by replacing unattractive, uncomfortable and embarrassing hospital garments with comfortable and brightly colored gowns. Featuring characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, these new Starlight Brave Gowns include colorful depictions of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong and Yoshi. Additionally, Nintendo will provide a donation to Starlight Children’s Foundation to help create 2,000 gowns for this fun and colorful program.”

Nintendo has picked up “a resounding win” in a case against Jeramie King and his affiliated business, Go Cyber Shopping Ltd. – the seller of circumvention devices. A Canadian federal court ruled in favor of Nintendo of America, determining that the distribution of circumvention devices including “flashcarts,” “modchips” and “game copiers” (like Sky3DS, Gateway 3DS) is illegal.
Nintendo has been awarded $12.76 million (CAD) against Go Cyber Shopping, including $1 million in punitive damages. According to the big N, this marks the first time that Canadian Copyright Act’s Anti-Circumvention law has been put to the test. King will also be issuing an apology on his website for the damage that he caused to Nintendo as well as its developers and partners.
Devon Pritchard, Nintendo of America’s General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Business Affairs, said in a statement:
