Nintendo will launch an online subscription service for Switch later this month, which includes access to multiplayer capabilities, classic NES titles from past years and back-ups in the cloud for data of games, but apparently that last feature does not work in all your games.
Game Informer conducted a search on the Nintendo website and found a message of "this game is not compatible with the save data cloud backup" on some titles, including Pokémon Let & apos; s Go, FIFA 19, Splatoon 2 and Dark Souls Remastered. Since then, Nintendo has confirmed to Game Informer that the cloud saves work in general.
Being able to save data online has been something Users of Nintendo Switch have been anxiously waiting ever since the console went on sale, without it, any progress The game will be lost forever if the console is lost, stolen or broken.
Ensuring fair play
In a statement given to Game Informer Nintendo said that "the vast majority" of the games would support the backup in the cloud, but that it will be disabled for some titles in order to "ensure fair play" and ensure that multiplayer games use a level playing field.
"In certain games this feature would allow, for example, retrieve items that had been exchanged to other players, or return to a higher ranked multiplayer online ranking that had been lost," Nintendo says . Then, "it would unfairly affect online multiplayer ratings," according to the company.
The switch players obviously were not happy that the cloud saved and did not work on all their titles, especially because this is going to be a paid add-on – but it does not look like Nintendo is going to give. In a few days, we should get all the official details.
