Wii U Hacked – Claims Modder Group Wiikey, Nintendo Disagrees

The modder group, Wiikey, claims to have pirate games running on Wii U. The group also claims that their WiikeU emulator is said to allow any Wii U game to be played via USB drives.

Specifically, they say “Yes, its real. We have now completely reversed the Wii U drive authentication, disk encryption, file system, and everything else needed for this next generation K3y. Stay tuned for updates.” However, be aware that there is no actual proof that the Wii U has been hacked.

Nintendo disregarded the claim saying that its safeguards remain intact. An official spokesperson stated, “Nintendo is aware that a hacking group claims to have compromised Wii U security. However, we have no reports of illegal Wii U games nor unauthorized applications playable on the system while in Wii U mode. Nintendo continuously monitors all threats to its products’ security and will use technology and will take the necessary legal steps to prevent the facilitation of piracy.”
