    Ok, I did try to upload saves to the online Zelda BOTW Save Editor: http://www.marcrobledo.com/savegame-editors/zelda-botw/

    But unfortunately, it said they are unsupported save type :(

    not talking about being legal or not lol...
    but i would guess nintendo would encrypt the saves peer console to prevent people switchting the serial and bam "saves that can't be transferred, are now easily transferable"

    I think possibly the two files in the "save" folder, 8000000000000000 & 8000000000000124 can be decrypted to access game saves ;) the actual save files can be transferred from one switch to the next and would work fine.

    You would need to decypt the two files to access the actual original save folders but I would bet on the games being saved within those files.

    Ok, but how would I decrypt them? Do you think those saves are for BOTW?

    No I think all your game saves are saved within those two files. I'm sure there's a way to decrypt them. I might have this all wrong by the way I'm not saying I know 100% for sure.

    2 pictures showing nothing and some words... And there's hype? K

    Not saying it's fake, just not seeing any validity in this. Guess I'll have to take his word. He seems credible enough.. I spose.

    I'm not excited because they didn't bring it to the simple users, and even if it was fast no one can ensure that we will get things like that in this speed. Idk, seems nice but not that much

    Maybe cause people exploited save data for homebrew acces? Save editing?

    (How funny would it be if Breath of the wild is the third zelda game with save game exploit, just like twilight princess on wii and ocarina of time on 3ds) :P

    No, they can't. All saves are stored on the system's internal eMMC. Encryption keys also never leave the system. (The keys part was true with 3DS as well, which is why you couldn't move saves from 3DS SD cards to another system by simply copying the files over.)

    The "save" directory you're seeing is for game data downloaded to the microSD card, not save files. For systems without any games downloaded to the microSD card, those are just blank index files the system created in preparation for downloading games to the microSD card. The Switch OS doesn't wipe them properly, either, so most of the data in those files is whatever was present on the SD card prior to the files being created.

    Well, telling from the photos, It could be the saves saved onto cartridge, and digital into System Memory, because like a 3DS, saves are on carts. Not entirely sure because I have 1 Switch console, not 2. Anyway it could be exciting to see BOTW and MK8D and Splatoon 2 save editors. I think personally the first homebrew should be the launcher and then save managers like JKSV, I wouldn't care if the save manager was in text mode or not.
