EmuParadise Removes All Its ROMs and ISOs

What is different now is that Nintendo is wielding a heavy legal hammer and is actively looking to smash ROM sites with it.

"Many of you are aware that the situation with regards to emulation sites has been changing recently", site founder MasJ said in a statement.

EmuParadise, one of the world's longest-running and most popular emulator communities, announced today that in the face of recent legal action against pirate sites it will be "changing", in effect ceasing to offer ROM versions of Nintendo's (and any other company's) old classics.

However, it wasn't worth it for them to "risk potentially disastrous consequences", as well as the futures of the team behind the site.

While the site's ROM library is no longer available, MasJ does say that they will still be able to provide a database of emulators - you'll just have to find the files to play on them elsewhere. We've always complied with takedown requests but as you can see, that is no guarantee of anything. We run EmuParadise for the love of retro games and for you to be able to revisit those good times.

KitGuru Says: The way I see it, EmuParadise will likely turn into more of a community forum for those who enjoy retro games.

Nintendo's war with websites that host its retro titles has claimed another victim: EmuParadise, an online repository that provided access to classic games from various Nintendo eras, including the N64, NES, and SNES in addition to Sega Dreamcast and Genesis, and Sony's PlayStation. Unfortunately, it's not possible right now to do so in a way that makes everyone happy and keeps us out of trouble ...

Through the years I've worked tirelessly with the rest of the EmuParadise team to ensure that everyone could get their fix of retro gaming. Many people have maintained that uploading ROMs was the best way to make sure an entire generation's worth of media doesn't vanish as physical cartridges start to crumble. The writer of the blog post admits that where the website goes from here is partially up to the users, but they do have "several plans" regarding what happens next. "Thank you for being a part of our community and encouraging us through all these years".
