After nine years of work by Pokémon Uranium's developers, and a reported 1.5 million downloads, the inspired fan-made game has officially been shut down by Nintendo---specifically, all the download links were removed before Nintendo could pursue them with any legal action.



Some truly saddening news, as Pokémon Uranium was definitely a game worth getting real excited about! Featured over 150 new Pokémon, a new type of 'nuclear' Pokémon, and dozens of hours of new content with a well-developed storyline. See the original trailer here:



This isn't the first time we've seen Nintendo bring down the ban hammer on a fan re-make: Nintendo gave the same treatment to "AM2R," a remake of the GameBoy classic Metroid II.

This game is to release in Japan on April 24 2013 for 1800¥. The game is the first Wii U game to use NFC (Near Field Communication) where you can purchase a figure in Pokémon Center stores and have it appear in game. The figures will launch on the same day for 200¥ each.

The toy Pokémon have been lost from the shop after falling in the river. The task is to get back to the Toy Shop, while facing various bosses such as Chandelure. Six standard figures and one special figure are to go on sale on April 24 with the Pikachu figure being known. The figures are trainable and you can record your battle information on them.
