Writable game cards appear on eBay

An eBay seller has put up a very suspicious listing on the marketplace platform recently.

NFR Install Tool

The seller listed three “NFR Install Tool” Game Cards for the price of USD999.99. The seller claimed that after he peeled off the white labels shown below, it revealed something called the “Contents Install Tool”, which seems to be a writable Nintendo Switch Game Card.

Ordinary Game Cards could only be read, and no data could be written to them.

Although we have no clue what these Game Cards do other than the ability to write data to them, it seems to be used for development or debug purposes. The seller did not reveal how they got their hands on the Game Cards, which should have been protected under lock and key.

Maybe the homebrew community could do something with it?
