Denuvo by Irdeto Will Protect Nintendo Switch from Piracy

The tech will solve the issue of emulating pirate Nintendo Switch games on PC.

Denuvo by Irdeto announced a technology to protect Nintendo Switch games from piracy. While the company provides protection for PC games, Switch can be emulated on PC bypassing the offered solution.

Denuvo's new tech blocks unauthorized emulations on PC so "studios are able to increase their revenue during the game launch window, which is the most important period in regard to monetization."

The technology integrates into the build toolchain and allows for the insertion of checks into the code, which blocks gameplay on emulators. 

“We at Denuvo understand that piracy negatively affects the gaming industry and are working with the industry parties to ensure they have the latest protection technologies available for them. Our team is excited to provide a solution that helps the developers and publishers to help fight the issue of Nintendo Switch piracy,” said Reinhard Blaukovitsch, Managing Director at Denuvo by Irdeto.

Earlier, Denuvo presented a solution to protect DLCs from piracy and joined the PlayStation 5 Tools and Middleware program.
