Nintendo advances the lawsuit against Shironeko Project

The launch of the legal action brought by Nintendo against the software house dedicated to the development of the mobile game White Cat Project, known in Japan as the Shironeko Project, dates back to 2018.

At the time, the Kyoto giant had sued the Colopl team, accused of having infringed six different patents registered by Nintendo over the years. As compensation for damages, Nintendo had made a request for recognition of 4.4 million yen, corresponding to approximately 41.7 million dollars. To date, however, the legal controversy has not yet found an epilogue: exasperated by the length of the legal conflict, the Super Mario house has decided to raise the stakes by increasing the sum requested as compensation.

From pages of Famitsu - magazine extremely widespread in that of Japan - therefore the news arrives that the value of the lawsuit filed by Nintendo against Colopl is now equal to 4.95 billion yen, corresponding to approximately 46.9 million dollars. For its part, the author team of White Neko Project rejects any accusation, confident that it has not infringed any of the patents filed by Nintendo. The case does not therefore seem destined to close soon.



A rather peculiar detail, in the meantime a Nintendo Switch version of the game that is the subject of the dispute has been announced, with Nintendo declaring intending to block its publication. In 2019, Shironeko Project: Zero Chronicles, an anime inspired by the action RPG for mobile devices, was then announced.
