Nintendo has broken from a long tradition and so it’s not going to allow you to transfer Nintendo Switch save data. Nintendo’s previous handheld and home consoles always allowed players to transfer and backup their saved game data but that’s not going to be possible with this latest console.
It is clearly explained on the company’s FAQ section for the console. It’s sad that Nintendo has decided to not allow players to transfer Nintendo Switch save dataand this is sure to upset many potential buyers. After all, players invest a lot of time and effort into building progress in their games. naturally, they want to backup those save files to use if something goes wrong. That just is not possible on the Switch.
Nintendo explains in the FAQ why you can’t transfer Nintendo Switch save data. It’s because the files are saved on the console’s internal storage and can’t be copied or saved to a microSD card. So what do you do if you run out of internal storage? The FAQ says that you need to delete some files to make room for more. That’s all. So basically you will have to do that more often than you would like because the console only has 32GB of internal memory and almost a quarter of that is reserved for the operating system.
Maybe the company might add this functionality at some point down the road. We will see.
