The new tool that can mod Nintendo Switch games

Please wait...

There's a new tool that has been released by the Switch hacking community this past week, and the brand new program, LayeredFS, allows modders to replace things such a models and sprites within Switch games, as well as manipulate text to allow other types of modding. 

Now, before you run off to find this tool and download it, a word to the wise;  there's a very good chance Nintendo will ban your account or console if you do this. It likely violates several terms and conditions, and although the tool does not allow piracy, only modification of games that you own - Nintendo have banned people in the past for similar actions.

That being said, if you're willing to take the risk, several mods have already been created which you can install using the tool. One of which is for Skyrim, and allows players to modify and install different types of cheat spells.

Other mods include ones for Mario Odyssey which replace characters and items with those from Mario Sunshine.

So, proceed with caution, and we won't link you directly to any of the tools mentioned here, but if this is the kind of thing that would interest you, the possibility is now there.
