Nintendo Switch Shown in Menu Leak Video Was Apparently Stolen

 |  |  February 20, 2017


Last week we talked a bit about the video that leaked showing some of the menus and UI of the Nintendo Switch console. That leak was by a dude called “hiphoptherobot,” who said of how he got his hands on the console, “It isn’t like I grabbed it off the back of a truck or anything, I just happened to get lucky because unnamed store decided to ship early for whatever reason.”

Nintendo has now called BS on that claim and has issued a statement saying that the consoles used in the leak were in fact stolen. Nintendo says that it has determined that the Switch systems used in the leaked videos were in fact stolen from a US distributor.

Nintendo gos on to say that the people involved in the theft have been fired and turned over to authorities for prosecution. From that we can glean that the leaked video is in fact of a Switch console and this is what the menus will look like. I’m surprised Nintendo hasn’t had the video pulled already, but as of this writing the video is still online, and you can see it above.
