A: As a game developer interested in creating a game similar to "CUSTOM ROBO," you should proceed with caution. It's advisable to consult with a legal expert in IP law to ensure that your game does not infringe upon any remaining rights held by Nintendo. Even if the trademark is cancelled, creating a game that is too similar to "CUSTOM ROBO" could potentially lead to legal challenges if it's perceived as infringing on Nintendo's copyrights or other IP rights. It's always better to err on the side of caution and seek professional legal advice in such matters.
