    Theyve already been dumped. You can install the apks but i think theres a problem with they cant be verified by nvidea servers to let you actually load them

    OK, I tried it now with a little modification in the button mapping (Y now for run, R for rolling), and I can confirm that it works.

    Oh, I couldnt find them anywhere last time I checked. Guess I didn’t look close enough!
    So they won’t run at all? Even when sideloaded?

    Nope. They have a license verification check with either some server at Nvidia or some Chinese service and nobody has managed to bypass it. You can install them, but can't run them at all.

    Dunno why they're so hard to get around, seems the only way to play them is to flash the Chinese firmware, use a VPN to access the store, and buy them.

    You did happen to read the text "I rather not". Did you get that confused with "I don't" or "I refuse to"? Also, the high hardware failure rate of the Nintendo Switch is another good example of why we shouldn't be investing in products "Made in China"

    I'm interested in seeing what comes of this from reverse-engineering and datamining the .apk file.

    It'll pretty much be the same thing as all the other ones: it's emulated, uses upscaled textures, and probably has a custom controller layout to work without motion controls and on the Shield controller. Not much more to tell that we don't already know.

    I know, but if it's Emulation, we could possibly inject different games
