Today, Nintendo won another legal battle against R4 devices against two Japanese distributors.
Upholding the ban on R4 devices, a Tokyo court ruled that the accused, two Tokyo-based R4 sellers, must pay a sum total of nearly US$1 million ($944,921) in damages to Nintendo and fifty or so other companies that had joined in the suit.
Those companies included the likes of Konami, Capcom, Square Enix, Level-5, Bandai Namco, and more. You know, essentially the entire Japanese game industry.
