It seems Nintendo may be the target of the next widespread data breach: according to Eurogamer and Nintendo representatives, there has been unauthorized access to Nintendo Accounts within the past week, and Nintendo has now acknowledged the situation. 

In a statement made to Eurogamer, Nintendo said, “We are aware of reports of unauthorised access to some Nintendo Accounts and we are investigating the situation.” 

Of course, you can check out your sign-in history by logging into your Nintendo Account and selecting “Sign-in and Security Settings.” For now, Nintendo suggests turning on two-step verification

Once we have more information we’ll be sure to update you.
