Dataminers Find NES Golf Inside Nintendo Switch Firmware

Dataminers Find NES Golf Inside Nintendo Switch Firmware”

Way back in the day the Nintendo Entertainment System came with the light gun for Duck Hunt and a janky robot game with spinning tops that a robot connected to the console would move around to open sliding doors in the game on the screen. We'll be sure to bring coverage on the Switch's retro game selection as Nintendo unveils more about it.

Earlier this year, an NES emulator was discovered being hidden within every Nintendo Switch by hackers, presumably to be used whenever the Virtual Console service rolls out.

It seems that Nintendo is still not giving us any sort of news on the Virtual Console front when it comes to the Nintendo Switch.

There was an emulator discovered by the name of "Flog" and it turns out, it was actually the NES version of Golf, which is "Flog" backwards. See?

The dataminers produced screenshots (which can be viewed here) showing joy-con controls, which would mark the first time ever in Nintendo's history that they re-released a game with updated controls. Furthermore, the emulator launches the classic NES title, Golf, with motion control Joy-Con support included. This game is undoubtedly a test run for the Switch Online's service and likely doesn't indicate traditional VirtualConsole support for the Switch, much to the dismay of many fans-including myself.
