"We're liaising with Nintendo to clarify on the next steps and deal with the matter accordingly; they are regretful circumstances and we apologize for the issue. We have always worked hard to keep up with Nintendo's DSiWare, 3DS eShop, Wii Shop, and Nintendo Switch eShop, and we've been there with this title for some time. "[1

" Having Circle deal with some of this cannon fire is not something I'd ever want to, "Rajan continued." These past three days have been the worst of my life. And I do not know what to say except I'm sorry, and all I've tried to do is to discover what I discovered 25 years ago. "
So he downplayed the abilities of the code editor saying it's all possible to draw lines, squares, labels and play sounds from the game an image.
