Thats no different to me taking action against people hosting Kickstart ROMS for Amigas when I don't hold the copyright.
That wasn't my point either

From Nintendo's POV this project wouldn't be worth making without their products, I doubt they even care about Konami or LJN's property in that respect. So they are looking at it as other people making money in-part from their copyrights.

Looking at the kickstarter page, they have only mentioned games they made as being infringing their copyright. I agree it's a bit over the top for 8 bit screen grabs from 30 year ago but i'm playing devils advocate here.

They could easily have done a deal for a share of any money made.
