Nintendo announced through its Japanese website that it had won another proceeding, but this time it opposed Mario Kart in Japan. Legal proceedings to protect Nintendo’s intellectual property began in 2017. A popular attraction for tourists and locals, Mario Kart is an attraction in Tokyo where paid customers can rent go-karts or drive in Tokyo in familiar character costumes. Not surprisingly, this has been noticed by Nintendo, and over the past few years, Nintendo’s proceedings against Mario Kart have been appealed. However, today it was announced that the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Nintendo, and Mario Kart will have to pay damages of 50 million yen.
The news release on the Nintendo website states that, but you can read more about the situation here.
