    This may be a silly question, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I seen an old video on YouTube and was wondering, could we possibly use the Yuzu emulator to somehow act as console#2 to transfer our saves without homebrew?
    Here's the video:

    I think one of the main issues here is that you can't link a Nintendo Account on Yuzu which is one of the crucial steps needed to transfer save data using this method.

    So it's impossible to get Yuzu linked to Nintendo, even if it were let's say "illegal"?

    It would require being able to replicate the Switch's entire communication protocol with Nintendo's servers on a computer. Hypothetically possible but it would take quite a while to reverse-engineer and implement such a process. I'm sure the Yuzu developers are more interested in making sure their emulator runs all games perfectly than copying Nintendo's server infrastructure.

    Thanks for the reply and information. I thought it may have been within my capabilities but that's just a little too far out of my reach lol. Good to know it is possible though, I may personally take up the task once I advance more.
