USGamer says Nintendo cracking down on review copies/codes after Mario & Luigi leak

Looks like review copies and codes for Nintendo's biggest games might not make it out to as many outlets as before. USGamer is stating that someone who received a review code for Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions was behind the leak of the game online. We reported on the leak awhile back, but had no idea who was behind it.

Now with Nintendo finding out it was a review copy which was leaked, they are supposedly clamping down hard on review copies. Some outlets which used to receive code/copies will no longer get them. Others will receive review copies/code on launch day, and a few others might get access a bit early.

We have no idea how this impacts our standing with Nintendo, as we've been providing reviews of their games for over 10 years now. Also worth nothing, this situation pertains to NoA, and not NoE. Certainly scary for our future, but that's for me to worry about, and not you.
