A while back, a hacker discovered a hidden NES game, Golf, inside the firmware of the Nintendo Switch, but someone has finally made a way to play it. Judging by the date and methods required to launch the game, it seems as though the inclusion was intended to be a hidden tribute to the former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, who passed away two years ago.

The homebrew method requires users to install software on their PC in order to trick the system into synchronizing with a particular web page, hosted by the software. The method also requires that users be on a firmware between 2.0 and 3.0.

If you’re technically savvy, you can check out a guide to try it yourself here on the GBATemp forums.

Disclaimer: Any modifications to your Nintendo Switch, including this one, could lead to the warranty on your console being voided. It could also lead to your system becoming non-functional. While these scenarios are unlikely, attempt this at your own risk.
