Update: It would appear that there’s some confusion here. When viewed on the eShop, the NA game listing confirms that cloud saves are supported, while on the UK eShop, it’s listed as “pending”. We’ll update this post once we hear back from Nintendo.
Original story: Cloud saves are something that Nintendo fans had been calling out for long before the company introduced them as part of its Nintendo Switch Online service, but we’ve already seen a few cases where this vital feature has been omitted from key releases – usually because there’s scope for players abusing it in order to cheat in certain titles.
Please note: this software does not support the Nintendo Switch Online paid membership’s Save Data Cloud backup feature.
Why would Nintendo choose to make this title incompatible with the cloud save function is anyone’s guess, but it seems like a foolish move to us – especially when you consider that many Switch owners could potentially be moving over to the Switch Lite this year, and will want to take their progress with them.
Could it be a mistake? That’s certainly possible, and we’ve reached out to NUK for comment (but, considering it’s a bank holiday here in the UK, we might not hear back until tomorrow).
Let us know what you think of this move by posting a comment below.
