Last month, Nintendo pulled the games VVVVVV and Citizens of Earth off of the 3DS eShop due to vulnerabilities in the games which allowed hackers to run unsigned code on the console. Now it looks like there’s another game being exploited for homebrew applications, and this time it’s one of Nintendo’s own.

A video on Twitter shows a homebrewer using the free-to-play title Pokémon Picross to gain access to the Homebrew Launcher on his 3DS. The video was released five days ago, and as of the time of writing the game is still available for download on the eShop; however, the game may be removed from the eShop like previously-exploited titles when Nintendo catches wind.

Our Verdict

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
