Anti-cheat and DRM software Denuvo is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
In a press release, Denuvo developer Irdeto announced that its software will now protect Nintendo Switch games from piracy.
“Nintendo consoles have long suffered from piracy issues and the Switch is no different,” writes Irdeto. “Even if a game is protected against piracy on its PC version, the released version on Switch can be emulated and played on PC from day one[.]”
Denuvo will block this emulation and ensure everyone needs a legitimate copy of a game to play.
