The kinds of hacks sold are exactly the type that you’d expect, namely the pirating kind. The report states that Nintendo has filed many previous lawsuits against the sellers of the hacking tools. According to the lawsuit, Bowser has been making and selling hacks since 2013. Back then, the device getting hacked was the Nintendo 3DS.
While it’s definitely no fun for the parties involved, there’s a great sense of irony to all this. First, Nintendo, getting a leader with the same name as one of its own famous villains. Now, the company gets into a legal battle with an actual villainous person with the name Bowser.
