I think the issue if it hasn’t been stated already is that the tournament was charging for entry to an online event using emulators. They’ve had slipping tournaments before, but you haven’t needed to pay entry (for such a high profile tournament). Actually, they just released a statement. According to this, their issue is “[Emulators] require the use of illegally copied versions of the game”. It’s possible that paid entry is a factor, but in this statement, they didn’t claim that as a reason.
People are clearly still interested in these games. The price of old Nintendo and retro games, in general, have been driven up like crazy in the past couple of years and the existence of emulators also supports this. I don’t understand why Nintendo still does shit like this if they aren’t going to cater to the demand of people interested in playing these games.
