    Apparently there's no way of transferring save data. I guess this is an anti piracy measure? Now I'm worried I'll lose my progress if I were to accidentally damage my switch while playing away from home. T.T I should stop pre ordering things without research but the hype clouds my judgement.

    I'm sure they will implement a way of backing up saves in the future or face the wrath of angry Nintendoans.

    I know it sucks but its still early.
    ONce nintendo releases the paid online im sure they will add in online save backup.

    Heh, the more obstacles Nintendo puts up, the more things they say "Hey, you can't do that" is just more enticing for hackers to come in and tear down walls.

    Nintendo: "You can't transfer saves!"
    Hackers: "Hold my beer..."

    I was just thinking that. I'd like to see this system cracked. I'd like to be able to backup saves as well as capture gameplay footage without using a card.

    Relax. It will be addressed in a future fw update and once the online paid service is active using cloud storage.

    Nintendo and Gateway are two peas from the same pod. Vague, never commit to anything and over promise and under deliver.
