Another Metroid 2 Remake and Pokémon Uranium have a lot in common. Not only are they fan-made tributes to famous Nintendo franchises, they were also shut down at roughly the same time.

Another thing they have in common was the fact that both were nominated for 'Best Fan Creation' at the 2016 Game Awards, but those nominations - selected after a fan vote - have been revoked. The category now only shows two titles: Brutal Doom 64 and Enderal: The Shards of Order.

The reason for the removal of the nominations has not been confirmed, but given that Nintendo is involved in the awards in a advisory role, it's easy to speculate.

We'll update this story if any official statement is forthcoming.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
