Since its inception, Nintendo Switch has that questionable feature of having your save files locked to the console. It has been mitigated somewhat thanks to cloud saves that came with the Switch Online subscription service. But the new Update 8.0.0 looks to make it possible without the online subscription.
Available from today onwards, Update 8.0.0 will allow you to transfer your save files for your games to other Nintendo Switch devices. This is quite a nifty feature especially if you are looking to upgrade to the new, slightly more powerful Switch that is rumoured to be released very soon.
The new update will also allow you to sort games in your library by last played, play time, name or publisher. Other additional features include the option to prevent the system from waking up when the console is still being plugged in, zoom option, and many others.
While it is still not the complete offline backup solution that gamers might be hoping for, it’s a step in the right direction. Meanwhile, it is probably a good idea to check if your Nintendo Switch already has the update ready for download.
