Arrested for selling modified Zelda: Breath of the Wild save files for € 90,000

A very common crime in Japan that an arrest has been charged for a business that is not allowed.


Normally, almost every week we bring you some curiosity with incredible facts that players get in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Something that has a lot of merits considering that the game came out more than 4 years ago. Of course, the case that we bring you now is quite peculiar and unusual: so much so that it has ended with an arrest.

We have echoed the case through the Kotaku portal, where they say that a 27-year-old Japanese man has been arrested for selling modified save files of the game. It offered people adulterated games with the best skills and the hardest-to-get items. The customer could choose the content and thus save hours of work in Hyrule. Ichimin Sho, the name of this peculiar entrepreneur, sold the games for about 3,500 yen, 30 euros to change.

Sho was arrested on July 8 for the Unfair Competition Prevention Act. After the arrest, he admitted to selling old save files and software modifications, stating that this was how he managed to invoice around 90,000 euros. It is not the first time that there have been similar arrests in Japan for this type of fraudulent business.
