Nintendo Wins $2.4 Million in Lawsuit to Yuzu Emulator – Nintendo wins a lawsuit against Nintendo Switch emulator maker Yuzu for $2.4 million.

Both Nintendo and Tropic Haze, the company behind Yuzu, filed for a final injunction and permanent injunction on Monday, according to court documents, after Nintendo accused Yuzu’s makers of copyright infringement.

Who is Yuzu?

Yuzu is a free Nintendo Switch emulator released in 2018, which allows playing Nintendo Switch games on their computer or mobile phone and Yuzu lets people play leaked copies of games early.

Nintendo said more than 1 million people played the game before its release date due to leaked copies.

Yuzu also announced the discontinuation of service on their website.

Hello yuz-ers and Citra fans:

We write today to inform you that yuzu and yuzu’s support of Citra are being discontinued, effective immediately.

yuzu and its team have always been against piracy. We started the projects in good faith, out of passion for Nintendo and its consoles and games, and were not intending to cause harm. But we see now that because our projects can circumvent Nintendo’s technological protection measures and allow users to play games outside of authorized hardware, they have led to extensive piracy. In particular, we have been deeply disappointed when users have used our software to leak game content prior to its release and ruin the experience for legitimate purchasers and fans.

We have come to the decision that we cannot continue to allow this to occur. Piracy was never our intention, and we believe that piracy of video games and on video game consoles should end. Effective today, we will be pulling our code repositories offline, discontinuing our Patreon accounts and Discord servers, and, soon, shutting down our websites. We hope our actions will be a small step toward ending piracy of all creators’ works.

Thank you for your years of support and for understanding our decision.
