Your Nintendo Switch Game Saves Will Be Lost Forever If Nintendo Can’t Transfer Your Data

The Nintendo Switch doesn’t enable you to upload your data and saved games to the cloud, nor does it allow you to access them from the same account on another piece of hardware. Furthermore, you can’t move them over to an SD card to keep them safe. Due to these limitations, your game saves have the potential of being lost forever if Nintendo doesn’t find a way to transfer your data – should something unfortunate happen to your console. For example, one user had to send his Switch to Nintendo after it unexpectedly bricked. Nintendo was able to resolve the issue, but it couldn’t preserve any of the save data originally on the system – including 50 plus hours worth of data from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
