Nintendo Network ID

Nintendo have shared some more details about the Nintendo Network ID incident that occured earlier this year (see this post for more details). After additional investigation, it was found out that the total number of accounts impacted by this incident was higher than initially reported: 140 000 additional accounts may, so about 300 000 accounts in total.

Naturally, Nintendo have reset the password of these 140 000 Nintendo Network IDs, as well as the Nintendo Accounts they may have been linked to. The company also specifies that additional security measures have been taken to avoid a repeat of this incident (but does not specify what exactly).

It’s estimated that less than 1% of all Nintendo Network ID that were impacted by this incident were then used to make unauthorized purchases via the linked Nintendo Account. Nintendo is still in process of offering refunds to users that were impacted by this, though as of today, most refunds have already been processed.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Good news for those of you who missed the time-limited Warframe and Cuphead Spirits: they’re now available from the Spirit Board and the Store permanently. By the way, if you bought the Cuphead costumes for the Mii Fighter, the battle for the two Cuphead Spirits will be against the Mii Fighter (Gunner) wearing said costumes (instead of Mega Man)!
