Nintendo consoles have long suffered from piracy issues and the Switch is no different. Even if a game is protected against piracy in its PC version, the version released on Switch can be emulated from day one and played on PC, thus circumventing the strong protections offered in the PC version. This can happen with any of the numerous games available on Switch.

By preventing piracy on Switch and blocking unauthorized emulations on PC, studios can increase their revenue during the game’s release window, which is the most important period for monetization. Nintendo Switch emulation protection will ensure that anyone who wants to play the game will have to purchase a legitimate copy.
