Nintendo Waves Through Yet More Asset Flips Onto Switch eShop


Last month we ran a story on The Bullet: Time of Revenge, a ‘new’ release on Switch eShop that turns out to be an ‘asset flip’; a pre-made and purchased asset pack given a new name and sent along to Nintendo for eShop lotcheck.

While this might rub many people the wrong way, this practice is technically totally legal — the asset kit was purchased from the Unity Asset Store and resold entirely within the limits of the licence terms — and Nintendo certification isn’t (and has never been) a test of quality, even when games came with the Nintendo Seal of Quality stamped on them. If the game loads and fulfills a set of basic technical requirements, it’s good to go.

It seems that two more asset flip games hit Switch eShop on 8th June: 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 asset pack trailer below to the screenshots on NOA’s game page:
