Sponsored Links
304w ago - Nintendo, Square Enix and Capcom have won their battle against the R4 cartridge for the Nintendo DS. It is now officially illegal to sell the R4 anywhere in Japan, and Nintendo has vowed to fight against other similar products.

To quote: Today, the Tokyo District Court has found in Nintendo's favour and granted an injunction against sales of the R4. Most outlets had already stopped selling it due to the lawsuit's pressure, but it's now officially against the law to sell it in Japan.

Nintendo, Square Enix and Capcom have released a statement crowing about the victory, highlighting that the R4 is a "violation under Japan's laws" and declaring that the 54-strong company coalition will continue to bring the fight to any manufacturers of similar devices.

What repercussions this will have for the R4 in the wider world is unknown as yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if the battle went global.
