Fake Switch Games Circulating On Microsoft Store
Is this a joke?
Most popular Nintendo Switch games like Luigi’s Mansion 3, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Breath of Wild are also on Microsoft Store. This might sound fake, but there is a developer with user id – Vidodoo0 selling up replica games which are not really games. So beware if you came across a listing and believed that Legend of Zelda Breath of Wild is there for Pc or Xbox or Mobile Device. Read the description properly.
As reported by Random Gaming News in it’s my pick of the week video, it was shocking to see how these replica Switch games are sold on Microsoft Store. To find these listing search for Vidodoo0 on Microsoft Store and there will be a list of games quite close to the original titles of Nintendo Switch.
One of these is The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Pixel Heroes, closely related to the title the Legend of Zelda Breath of Wild, the replica game is a 2D pixel game that even copied the cover art. Another one PokeSword Pixel Heroes faking Pokemon Sword game is another 2D game that resembles the original Switch Title cover art. The award of being the best replica goes to Luigi’s Mansion 3 listed as Luigi’s Mansion 3 Sports Day on Microsoft Store. Well, it is not actually a game but an invitation to a Marathon Event held in Doha Corniche (A waterfront promenade extending for 7 kilometers along Doha Bay in the capital city of Qatar).
So beware of such games, which are listed as a replica of popular original titles.
