What’s going on with certain Splatoon 2 players? What are they getting banned for?
Nintendo has been taking a deep interest in people who are hacking into their games and systems as of late. They’ve already banned many people for hacking the Nintendo Switch and turning it into something it’s not. And now, they’ve been banning certain Splatoon 2 players for similar infractions. Specifically, they found a way to hack in Octolings, and then made it so they can play as Octolings online before the Octo Expansion arrives later this year.
It’s not hard to see why they’re doing this, after all, the Octolings being playable is a key reward in the Octo Expansion, and it can only be done by playing through the story mode of the expansion. So, why should some hackers get the opportunity to play them first? Answer: they shouldn’t, and Nintendo is making that clear.
So if you’re one of the people doing this, be on the lookout, Nintendo is coming.
