Emulation site EmuParadise will no longer provide its library of ROMs

Blue skies

Last month, Nintendo filed lawsuits against two emulator sites, LoveRETRO and LoveROMs, citing their "substantial ill-gotten gains" and pursuing $150,000 for each Nintendo game hosted on the sites as well as up to $2 million for trademark infringement, not to mention the domain names and sources of their Nintendo ROMs.

"I started EmuParadise 18 years ago because I never got to play many of these unbelievable retro games while growing up in India and I wanted other people to be able to experience them", he added. The "biggest retro gaming website on earth" released a statement declaring the news, a move made to prevent the site's team members from suffering "potentially disastrous consequences", and from this point onward EmuParadise will remain purely a community and emulator database. We've got emails from brothers who have lost their siblings to cancer and were able to find solace in playing the games they once did as children.

However, in an announcement published today, EmuParadise's administration told the public that it is effectively closing its doors by removing all retro ROMs from the website.

However, EmuParadise founder noted in the letter to the community that a lot of good has come from running the site for more than 18 years.

On Tuesday, Bendjima shared photos of himself on vacation with a group of men and women enjoying lunch on his Instagram Story . The report was accompanied by photos of Younes hugging up on Jordan Ozuna , who has previously dated Justin Bieber and Tyga .

So, what happens to EmuParadise now that ROM files won't be available? I can not in good conscience risk the futures of our team members who have contributed to the site through the years. "Unfortunately, it's not possible right now to do so in a way that makes everyone happy and keeps us out of trouble", EmuParadise states.

The operators of EmuParadise, one of the largest emulator/ROM websites in the world, have announced that the site will no longer directly offer downloadable video game ROMs.

Thus, we have chose to make a new start.

If you've been alive for more than a couple of decades, you've probably played a few "retro" games in your lifetime. The founder notes that while hosting old games through EmuParadise has always been a challenge, the website had to make a drastic change this time as "the direction they are going in could not be more than clear". "We'd also love to hear from you in the comments about what you think we should do".
