Official Super Mario Encyclopedia Appears To Have Plagiarized Online Wiki

This week, Dark Horse released the official Super Mario Encyclopedia in the US, a product licensed by Nintendo.

Despite being an official product, online fansite Super Mario Wiki has released evidence of Dark Horse plagiarizing the wiki to use as content for the official encyclopedia. Examples include using a conjectural name made by a Super Mario Wiki editor, inconsistent mix of English and Japanese transliterations found on the Wiki, and more.

Here’s all the evidence Super Mario Wiki has provided:

Both Dark Horse and Nintendo have not responded to Super Mario Wiki’s allegations. This is the second major case of plagiarism to happen in the video game industry this month – the first was Square Enix stealing someone’s fan translation.
