Nintendo Pursuing 'Super Smash Bros.' Ultimate 'Leaks On YouTube, Shutting Down Channels

So at now, you may have heard about how a few lucky gamers have managed to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate thanks to some retailers in Mexico selling retail copies two weeks before release. But that’s also created an interesting conundrum for gamers, as several people have started leaking out details about the game, including the World of Light story details, soundtrack samples and more.

 Super Smash "title =" Super Smash "height =" 358 "width =" 665 "class =" 40 "data-item =" 1[ads1]145882 "/> </figure> <p> While some fans are excited for what's to come, others are angry about being spoiled about what <i> Ultimate </i> will be offering – especially Nintendo. And as you may have learned from the past, Nintendo is not a wise thing. </p> <p> Reports are pouring in from last night that the company has begun hunting down <i> Smash- </i> related content online, striking streams and videos alike with copyright claims and forcing their removal. In fact, two popular channels appear to have been taken down, mainly because users were actively spoiling the game with soundtrack samples and story clips. </p> <p> Crunchii and D ystifyzer, two popular YouTubers with over 70,000 subscribers apiece, found their channels shut down due to leaks of <i> Super Smash Bros. Ultimate </i> content. As a result, de kanaler vil sandsynligvis blive taget ned permanent en gang i løbet af de kommende uger, lige med indholdet allerede fjernet. And Nintendo is not yet done, as it's hitting dozens of other videos with similar strikes. They are <i> not </i> brass around. </p><div><script async src=

Reports indicate that both of these channels were hit with over 20-plus copyright strikes, making them serious issues for YouTube.

Crunchii, who goes by the name Crunchiitastic on Twitter, has argued against Nintendo’s practice on Twitter. You can see a sample of his rant below.

Stealth, a Nintendophile that consistently posts observant notes about the company on Twitter, also passed along the following note:

This has left some interesting feelings in the gaming community. På den ene siden, Nintendo tror at alt for harshly mot disse skabere; mens andre tror at de “fortjener” hva de kom for å ødelegge spilletidene ute fra sin utgivelse. What do you think?

If you’ve got an early copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate your best bet is to just enjoy it with you and your friends and try not to spoil it with others online. Just appreciate what you have, yeah?

The rest of us will experience Super Smash Bros. Ultimate when it arrives on December 7 for Nintendo Switch.
