Nintendo’s recently launched family-friendly somatosensory game “Nintendo Switch Sports”, which supports the online battle mode this time, achieved good sales results in the first week. However, on Reddit, players have recently reported that various indecent nicknames appear in the game, which may affect the children who play this game.
Nintendo does not have an NG word system, and it will even update this NG word database with the console version. For example, it recently banned “KKK” (abbreviation for the extreme religious group Ku Klux Klan) and “COVID”.
However, some malicious players will still find ways to bypass these rules. Some games played by adults may be fine, but games such as “Nintendo Switch Sports” that children can also play may encounter some problems. Step on the red line abroad.
What’s more, “Nintendo Switch Sports” also has a combined title system, so some players will find ways to use titles and names to combine some bad things.
For example, the word “Porn (pornography)” is blocked, but the player finds that if it is taken as “IPornI”, it can pass the level, and with the title of “intense child”, it becomes a bad sexual suggestion . There are also words like “Fuck” that are banned, but if it becomes “Fucko”, you can pass the level.
The most easily abused titles are “Fan of Child” and “Fan of Mom”. Some people match this title and take nicknames like “my Milkers”…
In addition, there are different standards for different languages. In the Japanese media test, although the English word “Hitler (Hitler)” is an NG word, if you use the katakana “ヒトラー”, you can pass the test.
The nickname NG word has always been a cat-and-mouse game between players and game developers. “Animal Crossing Friends Club” and now “Nintendo Switch Sports”, for Nintendo, which attaches great importance to all ages, must be a problem that will continue to appear when supporting online play in the future, and it is a bigger problem than others . If you’re a parent, disconnecting is probably the best way to go.
