Nintendo removes game from Japan e-shop after hacker discovers exploit.

Nintendo’s war with piracy and homebrew over the years is almost legendary at this point.

The 3DS game with an exploit that apparently enables homebrewed software on the handheld has been pulled, by Nintendo, from the eShop where it was for sale.

Earlier this week, a hacker showed how Cubic Ninja, by AQ Interactive (published by Ubisoft), could be used to run homebrew games, although the exploit did not enable pirated software.

Revelation of the exploit sent prices of the game soaring on the gray market, from $3 before the discovery, to listings between $40 and $500 on eBay.
