Nintendo Sues Emulation Service, Receives $2.4 Million Settlement

Last week, it was revealed that Nintendo filed a lawsuit against Tropic Haze, the creator of Yuzu, a popular emulation service. The platform allegedly facilitated the download of over one million copies of Tears of the Kingdom before its launch in May 2023.

Nintendo Sues for Facilitating Millions of Unlawful Downloads

In their lawsuit, Nintendo claimed that the Yuzu platform was “unlawful” and sought financial compensation for the alleged pirating activities promoted by the service. Recently, it was discovered that Tropic Haze decided to settle with Nintendo and paid a $2.4 million settlement.

Both Parties Reach Mutual Agreement

A document revealed that Nintendo of America Inc. and Tropic Haze LLC mutually agreed to settle the lawsuit. As part of the settlement, Tropic Haze must pay Nintendo $2.4 million.

Yuzu Platform Forfeits Source Code

The agreement also stated that the Yuzu platform must stop offering emulation services for Nintendo software. This means Tropic Haze must forfeit its source code and other related materials.

New Ventures Prohibited

Tropic Haze is prohibited from starting any new services or companies that offer emulated Nintendo software. The company must have made enough money before the settlement to make this venture worthwhile.
