Nintendo Switch Piracy Subreddit Banned After Years of Operation
After a significant run of over three years, the prominent subreddit dedicated to Nintendo Switch piracy and emulation discussions has been banned and shut down on the platform. This subreddit gained attention earlier this year when it leaked the highly anticipated action-adventure game Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom before its official release in May 2023.
Following its newfound notoriety, the subreddit experienced a surge in popularity, nearly doubling its membership size within a month. Starting with 37,000 members at the beginning of May, it quickly amassed almost 70,000 members just before its recent closure. However, this rapid growth in popularity seems to have played a role in the demise of the subreddit.
