It's the end of an era. EmuParadise is changing - by that, I mean that the site has pulled all ISOs, ROMs, and other formats from its site, in light of the events surrounding Nintendo's suing of certain popular ROM sites.

As stated by the owner, who ran EmuParadise for a whopping 18 years:

"From receiving threatening letters inthe early days to our hosts suddenly shutting down our servers due to complaints, we've seen it all. We've always complied with takedown requests but as you can see, there is no guarantee of anything."

He goes onto explain how impactful EmuParadise has been to families, soldiers, etc., but then delves into how it's not worth running the site as is, given the "disastrous consequences."

In response, he and his team will reboot the site, and it will remain focused on retrogaming. There are several plans in the pipelines regarding how the site will continue to operate, but for now, they will be kept under wraps.

All I can say for now is, bonne nuit, EmuParadise.

Bonne nuit.
