After the announcement of the Wii U Key which breaks Wii U’s security, a modding scene has released the first game dump.
The Avengers: Battle for Earth becomes the first unlucky Wii U game to be dumped and weighs in at 23GB. We will of course not be posting the direct link to that, but it looks like every game is padded to fill out the disc. It’s not clear whether the padded content can be removed at this stage or not.
The modding scene known as ‘Venom’ is quite an old player and this looks like a really bad news for Nintendo. The company had earlier released a statement saying that they were aware of “that a hacking group claims to have compromised Wii U security”, and they will be taking necessary legal steps to stop piracy.
The Wii U key enables piracy and doesn’t really benefit the homebrew scene much, so this is something that isn’t really advantageous to people looking to legitimately run emulators and the likes on the console.
