The quote was lifted directly from their site in regards to the original KQ2:

You tell me who is being disrespectful to who. I would love to see someone “reinvent” Super Mario Brothers anonymously, claim the original was “illogical” on their site, then go to Nintendo.com and advertise it on their boards. It’s quite simple – Nintendo would rightfully sue them and they would get booed out of the message boards for disrespecting Shigeru Miyamoto.
If you want to create your own adventure game, by all means under the sun do it. Just market it as your own game and don’t try to ride Roberta’s coattails.
