The famous Italian iOS hacker, Luca Todesco, reportedly breached the recently released Nintendo flagship gaming system, the Nintendo Switch. The Italian iOS hacker managed to get root access to the systems of the Nintendo Switch through employing the same technique that Todesco had used on the iOS 9 devices.

The world's most renowned hacker, Todesco, stated that in getting into the Nintendo Switch system, he tweaked his existing jailbreakMe iOS Webkit exploit to get rid of the iOS-specific codes. On the contrary, the Italian hacker denied on his Twitter account that he actually did a jailbreak for the Nintendo Switch. Todesco posted that he demonstrated a proof of concept exploit that gives him code exec in the browser.

Despite the Nintendo Switch jailbreak, the hack doesn't necessarily mean that pirated games will be made available for Nintendo's gaming system anytime soon. Several tech experts claimed that the development of these kinds of exploits takes time, and manufacturers are already geared up for these kinds of invasions.

On the other hand, game enthusiasts witnessed the five new games in Nintendo Switch, adding up to the list that is dominated by the action-adventure video game, "Zelda: Breath of the Wild." Now, "The King of Fighters" '94 rolls out to Nintendo Switch this week through the Nintendo eShop and will be up for grabs for £6.29, Express reported. Nonetheless, other huge titles to be released in Nintendo Switch in 2017 include "Splatoon 2," "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" as well as the "Mario Kart 8."

In spite of that, the "South Park: The Fractured But Whole" video game will not be launched in the Nintendo Switch. A South Park rep confirmed that the studio has no plans to bring the upcoming role-playing video game to the Nintendo Switch, according to Daily Star. Also, game director Joel Bylos made it known that the upcoming open world survival video game, "Conan Exiles," is unlikely to get a version in Nintendo's latest console.
