The US government caught using Yoshi's Island music in an educational flash game



We all know the classic antagonists of Nintendo – Bowser for Mario, Ganon for Link and capitalism for any villager of Animal Crossing. But it's clear that for a green dino, his biggest enemy is not Bowser Jr. nor any of his acolytes, it's the US government. Previously, we thought the prehistoric purloiner was the bad guy, commit tax evasion as an open secret (and now verifiable). But now, the black and white is turning gray, while new shocking evidence has emerged, which could imply that Stars and Stripes is the one who threw the first stone.

It's like this: the Environmental Protection Agency has on its website a flash game called Recycle City Challenge. Reduce outdated aesthetics (I'm 99% sure that the game is of In 1999, and yet he has no way to create it until the mid-2000s), the game had until now a music track accompanying it … directly from Yoshi's Island DS. Which means that the EPA was using Nintendo's music without permission.

But who was the instigator? Has the use of music been blamed for the illicit tax forms of the vile velociraptor? Or was Yoshi designed to hide bureaucratic incompetence and total theft? Who says the truth and who lies? Only time – and the truth – will say who is right and who is wrong and who will be righteous.
