The leader of a prolific Nintendo Switch hacking group called Team Xecuter has been sued by Nintendo, Polygon has reported. Aptly named, Gary Bowser was arrested last year along with Max Louarn and was charged with 11 felony counts for making and selling hacks and allegedly violating copyright, but now Nintendo is aiming for damages to be paid. The lawsuit that was filed on Friday could see Bowser and the company in question pay a considerable amount of cash should the lawsuit be successful. Team Xecuter is expected to shell out $150,000 for each copyright infringement and $2,500 for each device that’s been sold.
Nintendo has outlined that Team Xecuter has been in operation from at least 2013 with the for-profit hacking company selling kits that exploited the 3DS hardware.
