    No cloud saves is absurd. They could implement it in a very contained way... like you can only restore 2 times every year. Problem solved, took me 10 seconds to think it up.

    QR codes only through phone are to be expected I guess without a camera on the Switch. Hopefully the community will step up with a tool for us to import patterns offilne.

    Hmmm, im curious if someone will do a homebrew so that you can import designs without using the smartphone app (because you need a switch connected to the internet for that). But i like that it uses the old QR Codes, there is already software to create these. Also im really hoping time travling will be easy, there will surely be homebrew for that as well.
    Im really hyped for this game.

    Iwata died. Miyamoto became a stage prop.

    The changes are corporate in Japan. The North American Nintendo sock puppets you see just serve as mascots/characters, like Mario, Luigi, and the rest.

    I'll probably end up playing the shit out of this game though.

    Are cloud saves not linked with your online subscription which in turn is linked to your user account?

    Animal Crossing uses a system-wide save with all users living on the same island. That may not even be technically possible to implement in the infrastructure of the cloud saves system. Even if they could find a way around it then multiple users with multiple cloud saves could end up restoring over each others' save files. A dedicated single point of backup and restore makes more sense in this case.

    not allowing cloud saving is bull shit. if you can't cloud save, at least let us put saves on a usb. it's not like achievements or trophies are going to be affected, so if someone abuses the system and cheats, that's on them. I mean who cares?

    Was there any news on a general direct. I am so sick of this look a new figure to the smash roster. Look at this game that's already confirmed. I want to know about games to come. And when to expect them. And maybe show me some freaking game play of the games too.

    You guy just don't understand do you? The game have autosave to anti savescum, it will never work with cloud save unless the game force people to connect to Internet to save which wouldn't bode well with the handheld aspect of Switch.

    Just an update to this article. Nintendo privated the original video and uploaded a new one

    The most notable change is the small text at 25:42 from the original:
    to the new one:
    Most likely this was changed because of all the uproar from fans. Honestly, there isn't any good reasons to not have full cloud save support since this isn't a competitive game.

    If you can only acquire patterns using the phone app, then if you pirate the game you might not be able to import patterns without homebrew...

    I wish they had an option for people with mutliple switches to play on their own screens.

    I am hoping we can customize our entire map. I want to make an archipelago or a desert town.
