    Nope. You have to get good. Where's the fun in getting items without finishing the game at least once? You have to exlpore to get weapons, get better gear. Read walkthroughs (which i discourage anyone for first time playthrough) for item locations. Lastly, use an Amiibo..Goodluck.

    May the Goddess of Hylia smile upon you.

    Lel. The switch has been out for three-four days now. Console game saves have been encrypted for the last few generations now.

    Feel free to start brute forcing the Switch encryption, it will only take a trillion trillion trillion years and more energy than the observable universe has atoms to power your brute forcing machine..... Good luck! :D

    This, also, there is no way yet to end users dump saves in first place.

    Open them with HxD, you will quickly see that these files will be of no use to you. They will be encrypted.

    but it's Nintendo switch has bad security in general from my personal experience example people were able to download The Legend of Zelda breath of the wild on the Wii U before it was released

    Despite nintendo having a bad track record with security, do you honestly believe that someone will find an exploit that allows hijacking of the encryption engine (presumably AES, since they used it in the 3DS) and then another exploit or a similar one to run unsigned software, and finally developing a homebrew to decrypt and dump the save when there is no leaked nintendo SDK and no open-source SDK released, on top of the fact that the Switch has been out for 3-4 days?

    You just made my night. Thank you :rofl2:

    Dodongo dislike smoke.

    Anyway, you could mod a PS3 save with BSD and PRETEND the save is for the Switch. Use your imagination, let it shine :)

    The more you know :)

    my dad works for nintendo.
    how about giving ideas how to improve energy efficiency?
    because the wii u is 4 years old, it had enough time, and lack of nintendo caring about the console to people find out security holes and exploit the system

    your example and personal experience is a bullshit because it fails to understand that people had already the hability to play game dumps for months (not sure if years), and someone got in their hands a copy before release..
    play a game before release and a hacked system, is 2 different things...

    Perhaps if our human species developed into a Type III civilization on the Kardashev scale first, that could be a start?
