Nintendo waves through even more assets, flipping through to switch eShop



Last year we ran a story on The Bullet: Time of Revenge, a ‘new’ release on the Switch eShop that turned out to be an ‘asset flip’; a ready-made and purchased asset pack given a new name and forwarded to Nintendo for eShop lotcheck.

While this may rub a lot of people the wrong way, this approach is technically legal – the asset kit was purchased from the Unity Asset Store and resold entirely within the license terms – and Nintendo certification is not (and never has been) a test of quality, even when games came with the Nintendo Seal of Quality stamped on them. If the game loads and meets a set of basic technical requirements, it’s good to go.

It looks like two more asset flips hit Switch eShop on June 8: Bring Honey Home and Red Ball Escape, both from Benjamin Kistler.

The Unity Asset Store page for the latter indicates that the template, created and sold there by Fox Games, “is ready for release”

;. Compare the trailer for the asset pack below with the screenshots on NOA’s game page:
