    I was on a site searching anime raws and i saw a "Zelda Switch dump" Its a 16.71 GB dump and the dude than did says than dont exist any method for run it (its obvios) I dont have a Switch but my question its... How he did a dump from something than dont have 1 month live? Probably its a scam but i found it misterious.

    Did you bother to examine the file? The game isn't even listed as 16GB, on eshop for switch or the official website.

    ok but that doesn't mean the cartridge dump isn't 16gb...
    real or not, digital games don't need/usually come with padding that discs/roms do

    Usually games that get dumped by nintendo are multiples of 4

    GBA
    4MB
    8MB
    16MB
    32MB

    NDS Goes further
    64MB
    128MB
    256MB

    then 3DS
    512MB
    1024 MB = 1GB
    All the way up to 3GB (currently the biggest file size for NDS roms till this day.

    You said specifically 16.71GB If it was just 16.0GB it could potentially be real. I can accept that or that is possible a troll.. :creep:

    Well, if no method exists for dumping Switch games, then it's fake. Can't see what else can be said about this.
    Other than maybe "just buy the stuff, both the console and the game are great", but that's a personal (albeit popular) opinion, a complete offtop and not anyone's decision to make but your own (also money).

    just because there is no public tutorial doesn't mean it's not possible and that this is fake.
    i'm not saying it's real, but only one person needs to have made a hardware dumper and dumped the game in their basement.

    Well, there is already a method to dump the eMMC NAND, so if someone has the digital game and dumps the NAND, they should then have the game files. They're probably encrypted so not much we can do with it.

    Hello internet! Here is a dump I made. Its completely worth the risk of me being sued even though it may as well be an actual dump at this point. Enjoy the virus, maybe!
