It being reported [via Kotaku] that hackers with full copies of the game have even played it via video chat for the site, confirming that yes, the leak is 100% genuine and the game is floating around out there, almost two weeks before its official launch.

Nintendo is really struggling to keep the leak contained, and it’s now made its way to the likes of Twitch and YouTube – though you’ll be hard-pressed to catch a stream anytime soon thanks to swift copyright strikes from the house of Mario.
Nintendo is even taking things one step further by not only claiming videos, but getting YouTube accounts banned.

 If you look hard enough you can find evidence, videos and even the full soundtrack for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate still floating around on the internet, because no matter how hard Nintendo tries, this is 2018, and once something’s on the internet it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
It’s unlikely that the leaks are going to affect sales of the game, as Smash Bros. is one of the company’s most beloved IPs. The game is expected to outsell the likes of previous Switch hits of the year, including Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.
