    Those sailing the high seas may have noticed a new upload of a Nintendo Switch title. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury has leaked online a week exactly prior to its scheduled release date. A private dump of the game is circulating illegally online, allowing those with hacked systems to play the game before the official launch on February 12th. Please remember that GBAtemp's rules specifically state that warez and ROMs are not allowed to be uploaded or shared. Please be mindful of our ToS.

    Please do not ask for illegal files
    Please do not post illegal files
    Please do not share links to sites that host illegal warez
    Failure to adhere will result in account suspensions or permanent bans. This isn't our first rodeo, you have been warned!

    So is someone going to get sued again?

    Piracy lawsuit

    In November 2009, 24-year-old Australian James Burt purchased a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii several days before its release, as the store had mistakenly put it up for sale early, and ripped and uploaded the game disk online. Nintendo took down the game and sued Burt shortly afterwards, accusing him of violating copyright laws and depriving Nintendo of potential sales. The case was ultimately settled in January 2010, with Burt receiving a fine of AU$1.3 million as compensation for lost sales, as well as an additional fine of AU$100,000 as a part of Nintendo's legal fine.[65] Burt was also forced to disclose the locations of all of his computers and electronic storage devices, as well as give access to his email, social networking and website accounts.[66] Nintendo of Australia managing director Rose Lappin called the incident "a global issue", noting that thousands of copies of the game had been downloaded across the world before it was taken down. Burt later commented on the incident, calling his actions "very stupid" and asserting that the crime's repercussions were something that he would have to deal with for the rest of his life

    A worker at Gamestop didn't get the memo about diamond hands and this slipped through.

    Except that the guy who leaked that game posted his receipt and his face, so he was practically begging to get caught

    Anyone remember when BOTW leaked really really early? I had already beat the game, before it was released, lol.

    Hope the people who try to go online get banned. People like that are what ruin it for the rest of us.

    Might grab it soon-ish then. Sorry Nintendo, love your games n all but $60 is a bit much for an old Wii U game with a bonus 3-hour experience.
