Nintendo has released a full transcript of its recent Investor Q&A session and one key question focused on Nintendo’s leak management.
The question itself references “reports of hacks which allegedly have been traced to China”. While the asker doesn’t specifically mention Nintendo, it’s worth noting that the infamous “gigaleak” involved Nintendo 64 prototype ROM dumps from the development of the iQue – a brand adopted by Nintendo in China when regulation of video games was stricter.
In response, Nintendo President Furukawa states that the company is “taking a variety of initiatives to address information security threats and vulnerabilities” including cooperating with outside specialists and the set up of an “Information Security Committee”. These, along with “physical and technical countermeasures”, hope to address future security threats and vunerabilities.
With such big steps it’s looking like Nintendo is going all-out to prevent future leaks. We’ll just have to wait and see how successful they are.
