It’s only been out for a matter of days, but it would appear that hackers have found a way to cheat in Nintendo’s new Mario battle royale, Super Mario Bros. 35.
As reported by Polygon, social media users began to notice some suspicious activity in the game earlier this week, with players topping the leaderboards after collecting a whopping 99,999 coins. That feat seems very unlikely, leading people to believe that hacking must be to blame.
On top of this, Nintendo has removed a YouTube user’s video titled ‘Super Mario Bros. 35 Online hacking Part 2’, which presumably showed gameplay of a hacked version of the game, or possibly advice on how to hack into the game yourself.
While collecting coins isn’t the main objective of the game, having an infinite supply of them gives you an incredibly unfair advantage over your opponents. It’s no surprise, then, that Nintendo wants to stop hacking of this nature in its tracks.
