The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild NES received a great deal of attention this month. Inspired by Nintendo’s own 2D prototype, it looked to take the same concepts and turn it into more of a full-fledged game.

Unfortunately, just as we and many others feared, Nintendo caught wind of the project and sent a takedown notice. Creator Winter Drake confirmed the news on his Twitter page and also passed along the big N’s message.

It reads:

Drake did say before that he would be continuing with his project by substituting original characters if Nintendo asked for its removal. It looks like that will be the way to go, and Drake said on Twitter: “Don’t worry, the project will come back bigger and better than ever!”
