    According to this site (in french, sorry), some guy on reddit reported that Switch seems to use a Cloud system for saves (maybe more)
    He first played BOTW on his switch, but later started having troubles with BSOD. he returned his console to the builder and got a new one.
    He though, damn ill have start over?
    But then, a message appeared when he started Botw
    Some necessary data could not be found.
    It will be downloaded now
    After the download, his saving file was back and he could continue where he was :)

    If true, then that should put to rest all the worries over not being able to move your saves to the microSD card.

    It was debunked. Go to IGN's Article.

    Guys, have you read the original post from the Reddit poster? Because he thinks they just transfered his data to the new Switch and not using a cloud connection. Because how else would it know his wifi access etc?

    Couldn't this be the game's data, rather than the save...?

    That's exactly what it is. Saves, currently, are only accessible on the console. As of this moment the only way to transfer is via Nintendo.

    If you watch the video, his save data is there.

    Thanks guys. With how it's worded, I cannot see how people even began to think it was saved data...

    Because people believe a news article (Fake news?) instead of the original thread with loads of edits in it...
