Nintendo is Aware of Save Data and Back-ups


With the ongoing demand of developers requiring more storage space of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo has to find a proper solution to off-set saves. Considering that the system only holds 32GB of internal storage and the ever expanding requirements that games need save progress, this is something that Nintendo has no choice but to address how to back up Switch owner’s save data.

Reggie Fils-Aime had this to say regarding this issue with Mashable”

“You’re talking to someone who has completed 120 Shrines, and I think I’m at 400 Korok seeds and growing in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So I understand what it’s like putting a lot of time into content, and the thought of that content not being there.

We’re aware of the concern. Certainly, Nintendo is a consumer-oriented company [and] we want to make our consumers happy. We’re aware of the concern and it’s an area we’re going to continue working on to make sure that we can alleviate some of those consumer fears of having a content-based issue.

Because of the type of platform we have — it’s something that is on the go as well as connected in the home environment — there are some added complications. It’s not as simple as a piece of hardware that never moves and is always connected in an online environment.”

It’s comforting to know that Nintendo is aware of the concern, Reggie didn’t answer how this will be addressed.
