Nintendo’s leak problem has taken a turn for the worse.
According to a new study conducted by the UK-based company, there has been a “relatively high” number of leaks in recent weeks, and there are “a number of possible causes”.
The study by the firm, which looked at all leaks from Nintendo between June 8 and September 20, concluded that Nintendo has been the target of more than 5.3 million leaks since the launch of the Switch in March 2017.
It was also the company’s second biggest source of leaks.
The company, which has faced a number of high-profile leaks in the past, has faced several leaks in 2017 alone, including a leaked model of the Nintendo Switch, which was revealed at E3 2017.
According to the report, there are several possible causes for this phenomenon, which include a combination of factors, such as a weak network and an outdated firmware.
In addition, the researchers also found that the number of leaked devices increased when a new firmware was released for the console.
“We have been seeing more leaks from the Nintendo hardware industry, which is one of the most important areas for us to focus on,” a Nintendo spokesperson said in a statement.
