Switch hacked: Nintendo (really) sues Bowser

Admittedly, it is not every day that we can write that “Mario attacks Bowser” since it is generally the opposite. In our world, it’s Nintendo of America suing Gary Bowser, a hacker suspected of selling Switch hacks with his French colleague Max Louarn through their company Team Xecuter.

Far from being the partridge of the year, Team Xecuter would officiate since 2013. At the time, the team was developing devices that broke the protections of the 3DS. Now, the tools SX Pro, SX Core, and SX Lite target the different versions of the Switch and allow unlocked consoles to run games that have also been unprotected.

If these tools allow, in particular, to archive games for the future (emulation, etc.), the sulphurous nature of the two acolytes and the fact that they earn money with pirate tools do not plead in their favor. That’s why Nintendo’s lawyers have drawn the heavy artillery, asking for no less than $ 2,500 for every Switch hacked and $ 150,000 for every game-related intellectual property infringement.

The two accomplices are currently in detention in their respective countries, the French awaiting the decision on his extradition to the United States. Like in Nintendo video games, Bowser is pretty unlikely to make it unscathed.
