It's just been a few days since Super Mario Bros. 35 went live, and recently it has been discovered that not everyone is playing the game fairly. Cheating and hacking has always been a nuisance when it comes to online multiplayer games. Popular games like Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends, and Fortnite ban cheaters regularly. Despite this, new cheaters keep coming back. While cheaters are mostly found in the PC gaming community, it is surprising to see that players have managed to hack into consoles as well.

The idea that hackers were involved in the matchmaking for Super Mario Bros. 35 became evident after Twitter user @Flockiv_ shared an image that shows that there's something fishy going on with the leaderboard. The leaderboard shows the topmost players in the battle royale managed to collect 99,999 coins. It is quite unlikely to achieve such a great number, leading fans to believe that cheating must be the reason.

Although players are waiting for Nintendo to respond to the issue, the company is currently bent on removing videos from YouTube that promote hacking in Super Mario Bros. 35. Several videos on YouTube discuss and guide the modification of the Nintendo Switch. It seems that modding the console itself isn't difficult, and if that's the case, it's up to Nintendo to upgrade the security on its hybrid console.

On October 3, Nintendo also won a case against a notorious piracy group called "Team Xecuter." The two members of the group are currently in custody. The piracy group was involved in the modification of popular consoles like Xbox, PlayStation Classic, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switch. You can read more about this here.

So, it seems that Nintendo is actively taking the required measures to put a stop to hacking and piracy. Nonetheless, fans are waiting for an official statement.

Super Mario Bros. 35 is currently live on Nintendo Switch. The battle royale game will be available until March 31, 2021.
