Nintendo has taken a deep dive into Switch bypass tools

Must Read

A few years after the total dominance of special programs on the Internet that allow you to bypass the protection of Nintendo Switch games, the company came to its senses and began to fight this disease. Moreover, using very aggressive methods.


The publication TorrentFreak drew attention to the activation of Nintendo: the company thoroughly took on GitHub, seeking to block repositories with tools for bypassing game protection. The main target was the Sigpatch-Updater program, which allows you to bypass anti-piracy protection on hacked consoles. At the same time, Nintendo bans all associated repositories.

In addition, we got Lockpock_RCM, Incognito_RCM and kexplez-nx – these tools allow you to extract Switch encryption keys in order to subsequently “feed” them to emulators. Previously, Nintendo destroyed the Yuzu emulator: it turned out that one appeal to the court was enough for the authors to admit guilt and agree to pay compensation. The only strange thing is that the Japanese corporation did not take on pirates earlier.
