EmuParadise takes down all ROMs from its website following Nintendo's legal actions

As for the legal action noted in the post, it's likely that MasJ is referencing a suit filed by Nintendo against two other ROM-hosting websites, LoveROMS and LevoRETRO.

While Nintendo's lawsuit was not stated outright to be the direct reason, the EmuParadise team states that the situation regarding emulation sites has been changing recently, though this is not something new to the site. The founder of Emuparadise, a long-running website that offered a near-comprehensive library of ROMs and ISOs for the games of yesteryear, announced this week that they have chose to stop distributing those classic titles. "I can not in good conscience risk the futures of our team members who have contributed to the site through the years", continues the post.

One of the oldest and most popular emulator websites, EmuParadise, has removed all ROM download links from its site. And he revealed that: "From receiving threatening letters in the early days to our hosts suddenly shutting down our servers due to complaints, we've seen it all". We run EmuParadise for the love of retro games and for you to be able to revisit those good times. We've always complied with takedown requests but as you can see, that is no guarantee of anything.

If you've been alive for more than a couple of decades, you've probably played a few "retro" games in your lifetime.

EmuParadise has been running since 2000, and it's a good bet many of you have visited the site from time to time (it's easily one of the most popular ROM and emulator destinations online) to download a classic game from your childhood that you felt like catching up with again. Did any of you use EmuParadise over the years? Many people have maintained that uploading ROMs was the best way to make sure an entire generation's worth of media doesn't vanish as physical cartridges start to crumble.

"We have already made several plans of what is going to happen next", they continued. "Over the years, many folks have joined in and contributed to this vision and I think I can say that we've been successful in spreading our passion for retro games far and wide". This is alluded into the opening paragraph in EmuParadise's statement.
