At Gamescom 2022, as we have reported, Denuvo has proposed a new DRM solution for Nintendo Switch, to limit the possibility of players using Switch video games with an emulator. Now, we discover that Nintendo is not the one who pushed in this direction.
In a statement to Kotaku, a Denuvo spokesperson said Nintendo is not involved with the Switch DRM initiative. This technological solution came in response to the request of Denuvo’s partner publishers.
In addition, Denuvo says that performance will not be limited by security technology: “Due to NDAs, we cannot disclose company names, but we can say that this solution stems from strong demand from publishing partners.
Software publishers. and Denuvo are concerned with providing the best gaming experience … The protection is designed not to affect the player’s experience and has no impact on game performance. This new solution provides that the protection is only active in the code parts not critical to performance. ”
