Switch Denuvo emulator protection

Denuvo, which is associated with security for video games, is now offering its protection technologies through the Nintendo Developer Portal (NDP) as authorized Switch middleware.

This is apparently the first security partner on the portal, and developers can access the official Nintendo Switch Emulator Protection now. Denovo says it’s “a revolutionary technology to protect games launching on Nintendo Switch from piracy.”

The company points out that in the past, it’s been possible a Switch title to be “emulated from day one and played on PC, therefore bypassing the strong protections offered on the PC version.” Further stated: “The Nintendo Switch Emulator Protection will ensure that anyone wishing to play the game has to buy a legitimate copy.”

Denovo claims that “the technology integrates seamlessly into the build toolchain with no impact on the gaming experience. It then allows for the insertion of checks into the code, which blocks gameplay on emulators.”

Irdeto CEO Doug Lowther said of today’s news: “As gamers, we know first-hand how piracy negatively affects the gaming industry. We’re thrilled to be part of the Nintendo Developers Portal, so that we can provide the latest technologies to help fight this issue for Nintendo Switch players and developers. We witness an increasing need to protect against emulation on PC from game launch, our solution is a must have for publishers to monetize the games fairly on this platform and also not impact PC game sales.”
