Previously, we reported that some players were using the Dreams game creator on Playstation 4 to create projects based on various Nintendo IPs such as Mario and Donkey Kong.
However, it seems all of that may be coming to an end very soon, as Sony appears to be taking action against these projects at Nintendo’s request. In a series of posts on Twitter, Dreams content creator Piece_of_Craft revealed that he received an email from Sony saying that Nintendo had objected to his use of their IP in his Mario Dreams projects, forcing him to put all of them on hold.
Good news and bad news
We flew too close to the sun boys! A big video game company who i will keep nameless obviously didn't read my "be cool" note in dreams
no worries though have a back up plan. But for now Mario projects in dreams are on hold until i put said plan into effect pic.twitter.com/ifGDM0jFZ3

The email came through to the same email i have linked to my psn but it was from the legal and business affairs Division of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe
so not from Mm.
And stated Nintendo, themselves, had objected to my use of their Super Mario IP in Dreams

Presumably, this means it is likely only a matter of time before all the other Dreamsprojects which use Nintendo IPs meet the same fate as Piece_of_Craft’s work, if it hasn’t happened already.
