Notorious anti-piracy provider Denuvo is set to expand its technology to protect Nintendo Switch games from bootlegging.
On Wednesday, the company introduced Nintendo Switch Emulator Protection,
designed to prevent unofficial PC ports of Switch games that can be played with emulators.
Even if a game is protected against piracy in its PC version,
the version released on Switch can be emulated and played on PC from day one,
thus bypassing the stronger protections offered in the PC version
Denuvo said in the announcement. This can happen with any of the numerous games available on the Switch.
Piracy can cause game developers to lose sales.
So Denuvo is responding with a Nintendo Switch emulator security system,
