Nintendo is unfortunately particularly nasty when it comes to stuff like this. They really deserve to be taken to court. They even pulled Pikmin 3 from the Wii U E-Shop, because they now have a Switch version to sell at full price.
Strange how they still have so much good will. It's like they're at peak anti-consumerism and arrogance of 2006 Sony and 2013 Microsoft...but all the time.
