Nintendo Switch piracy is facing a new threat. During Gamescom 2022 on Wednesday,

It doesn't appear to be partnering with Nintendo on the initiative,

which instead appears to be aimed at third-party publishers of multiplatform games. 

Like all other Denuvo solutions, the technology integrates seamlessly with the build toolchain with no impact on the gaming experience.

It then allows checks to be inserted into the code, which blocks gameplay on emulators, 

Switch emulation has come a long way since the console's launch in 2017

But the Switch, like Nintendo's previous handhelds before it, is also vulnerable to piracy,

 with users distributing ROMs of games online to play on jailbroken switches or, more often, a Switch emulator on PCs.
