    Since the other thread is getting too long and OP doesn't seem to update it, so here it is.

    TL;DR: It's NOT leaked yet.

    Summary:
    • NUS files were up for a while for EU region(00050000101C9500), but Nintendo took it down hours later.
      • There were multiple false reports about US region(00050000101C9400) is up too, you can check it yourself, links below.
    • All posted keys and/or tickets are fake.
    • There was someone posting some assets from the game (1, 2, SPOILER ALERT!!! links courtesy of DarthDub), some believe they're genuine, while others believe they're scans of official strategy guide, anyway he/she didn't/won't leak the key/ticket.
    • Seems like some people got the game early, but still, no leak.

    FYI section for newbie:
    • NUS files are as good as random data without a key/ticket.
      • Don't worry about whether your download is complete/correct, when the key arrives, we can verify.
        • AFAIK, can't verify without the key.
    • Brute force a 128 bit key is impossible, please don't argue this to humiliate yourself.
      • Some people claim "they're through 20% of the possibilities", that's cute.
        • The chance of that(zero) is actually lower than hitting the jackpot(very tiny but positive), math is fun, you should learn it.
      • Some people are suggesting us "collaborate", to be honest I don't think there is a need for that, just try randomly, yes the possibility of you guys overlapping is a bit higher than the jackpot, but still, neglectable.
    • If you want to check if they're on NUS again, just click these links:
    • If you want to verify a key, just submit it on that key site(don't ask for the link, not allowed here), it will tell you.
    • If any pirate among you happened to obtain a disc early, here's what you'd need:
    • You might want to refresh these pages instead of 4chan/vg/zlg/:
    Update:
    I stopped updating this post at 2017-2-27 01:26 UTC

    About this thread:
    • I'll update this if anything new happens.
    • I'll update the time stamp below if nothing happens in a while, while I'm awake, yeah I'm hyped.
    • If you like this post, click "like" below, no need to make a dedicated reply, let's keep this thread short and informative, thanks.

    We needed a real thread for this, not some thread that had fake info on it.

    Thanks for the info.

    Just a question for someone who's not into WiiU hacking: Where does this so much waited key comes from? From the disc version? Or the digital version has it as well?

    It might be worth adding to that first post that the review embargo ends tomorrow (February 24th). This may well be the date when people feel more comfortable with releasing the ticket. Not saying it will leak tomorrow, but if it is gonna leak before launch, I'm thinking tomorrow would be the earliest that it might be available.

    I want this thread to be dedicated to the topic, so I won't answer you, but you're free to post that question in a new topic and I'll be happy to answer you there.

    And if you do enough reading in the hacking and backup loader section you'll know the answer.

    Thanks for the info, but I really want to keep the OP short, and I don't consider this is significant enough, sorry.

    Even if it leaks tomorrow, i'm not installing it on my Wii U yet. [Not enough space and i want to see if it works first.]

    @JimmyZ the link i suggested was an alternate method of dumping the tickets... your idea is right also... just www.wiiubru.com/go/tik2sd dumps direct from the web , was my point. :)

    so for example, you play with the disc of zelda breath of the wild on wiiu , you go on this site, click on the button and it dumps the title.tik directly to the wiiu sd card, right ?
    if so, it's great

    Good OP, OP. Sorry your thread won't get the same traction as the one that is stuck in an infinite loop.

    While yes a lot of useless or false info there, but more fun right?
