Nintendo Switch patent could put an end to cheaters before Splatoon 3 arrives


Nintendo has filed a patent for a new anti-cheat program that may be used to combat nefarious players in the upcoming Splatoon 3 and other online multiplayer games on the Nintendo Switch console.

The patent, discovered by OpAttack, is referred to as an “attestation program.” In short, the program will detect any unintended modifications to Nintendo Switch game software and code. Examples of such changes include preventing the player from taking damage and artificially boosting movement speed, or weapon accuracy, far beyond the limits of what’s intended in any given title.
