Nintendo’s longstanding battle with piracy has been well documented. Piracy was a huge issue in particular on DS, but also continued with its subsequent systems.

With Switch, Nintendo is taking serious anti-piracy measures. Reports in the modding and hacking scene indicate that the company has started banning particular gamecart certificates. In other words, Nintendo can go after games that have been illegally obtained by conducting a check between certificates and game cards.

Some folks are naturally wondering what may happen with the pre-owned market and pre-owned games. Since we only have early information and the situation is developing, not everything is clear at the moment.


Following the reveal of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate last week, director Masahiro Sakurai wrote a new article for this week’s issue of Famitsu. This is one of his first columns about the new game included in the magazine.

In it, Sakurai talks about how the first proposal came about in late 2015, the game’s faster tempo, and much more. He also touched on how it was decided to build off of past mechanics, which in turn allowed for a larger roster.

We’ve prepared a full translation of the column below.

EA announced and subsequently released Unravel Two at its E3 press conference last week. After the news was shared, many were quick to point out that it would be a fit on Switch, especially thanks to the co-op play feature.

Creator Martin Sahlin previously mentioned that Unravel Two “would be great on Switch”, but it would take “a lot of work”. A couple of the game’s other developers have spoke about those challenges in depth.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker reaches Switch and 3DS next month. On both platforms, Nintendo is including new stages based on Super Mario Odyssey. But rather than adding on, these levels are replacing older content.

Super Bell Hill, Conkdor Canyon, Shadow-Play Alley, and Clear Pipe Cruise were in the original Wii U version of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Nintendo’s official Japanese website confirms that they have been swapped out with the new Super Mario Odyssey levels on Switch and 3DS. We’re not talking about a tremendous amount of content here, but it looks like you’ll need the Wii U version if you’re really interested in trying out those Super Mario 3D World stages.


The latest Japanese hardware sales from Media Create are as follows:

Switch – 48,062
PS4 – 19,090
PS4 Pro – 6,048
New 2DS LL – 3,862
Vita – 3,099
New 3DS LL – 2,715
Xbox One X – 733
2DS  – 475
Xbox One – 53

For comparison’s sake, here are the hardware numbers from last week:

Switch – 40,834
PS4 – 20,174
PS4 Pro – 6,497
Vita – 3,955
New 2DS LL – 3,640
New 3DS LL – 2,736
2DS – 466
Xbox One X – 70
Xbox One – 56

And here are the software charts:

Last September, Playdead revealed that the acclaimed title Inside would be released on Switch. We hadn’t heard anything since then, but Famitsu confirms today that the game is releasing on the eShop worldwide next week.

That’s not all though. In addition to Limbo, the studio’s previous title Limbo is seeing a Switch version as well. It’ll be out on the same day as Inside.

SNK and NIS America still have a couple of characters to announce for SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy. But thanks to the game’s PlayStation 4 trophy list, they’ve been revealed early.

The Donkey Kong Adventure DLC for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is pretty massive. Ubisoft has said that it’ll contain around ten hours of gameplay, but that wasn’t always the plan.

In an interview with Eurogamer, developer Davide Soliani revealed that the original plan was for the DLC to be “a small experience, two to three hours, one world.” That’s in contrast to how the content is now, with tons of gameplay, new music, and new elements for the combat system.

The official release dates for Valkyria Chronicles 4 and Valkyria Chronicles 1 for the Switch in Japan were officially revealed in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 will launch both physically and digitally for 7,490 yen on September 27th, while Valkyria Chronicles 1 will launch on the same day on the Switch’s eShop for 1,990 yen. As mentioned before, those who purchase Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be able to pick up the first title and save 500 yen off it.
