It seems like Pokemon Sun and Moon has almost been downloaded by the entire internet before its release. Now, it’s time for the pirates to face some strict action.
The game was leaked entirely and circulated in the web, earlier this month. The links which contained Pokemon Sun and Moon‘s files allowed the players to have full access to the game including the online play.
Several roms sites are also offering early access to the game apparently, with users being able to play the game on their PCs.
However, Nintendo had seen enough and have already started banning people. Several blogs and forums like GBA Temp and 4Chan have already claimed that they are getting banned on 3DS. Players with bans will now not be able to go online on the game and even can’t access general eshop.
In a statement, Nintendo mentioned:
As a result of a number of Nintendo 3DS users using unauthorized versions of several games, and connecting to the official game servers in violation of our terms of service, these users’ Nintendo 3DS systems that stored the unauthorized game code have been banned from Nintendo’s online network effective immediately.
The ban have created some uproar among the players as they voiced their thoughts against Nintendo openly.
Some has taken the ban well:
While some hasn’t:
Players are now trying to find a way around to escape the ban. They are even calling Nintendo’s support lines for piracy bans, which have of no use till now. On the other hand some others feel that Nintendo has gone too far with the 3DS limitations.
