A company like Nintendo, which has been around for a very long time and produced multiple beloved franchises, is obviously going to inspire its fans. And Nintendo's fan base spreads far and wide. They've worked on all sorts of custom projects, from fan art to fan fiction. But some true fanatics with a lot of time and serious resources have gone even bigger and created large scale fan projects.
Fan projects have run the gamut of Nintendo's IPs, from Mario to Pokemon. And while most of them have been pretty impressive, Nintendo doesn't seem to appreciate them. In fact, the Big N has become sort of notorious for shutting these sorts of projects down -- like they did with these next five fandom-driven endeavors.
