Nintendo Switch Will Soon Support Cloud Saves: Here Are The Clues

Nintendo Switch stock is obviously a lot better than the continually out of stock Nintendo NES Classic mini but it's undeniable that available units for the new hybrid console are running very low, not just in the United Kingdom, but across the world. The device comes with certain flaws, including dropping frame rates, weak battery performance, and dead pixels on the screen.

All this means that gamers should expect to see a sudden surge of Nintendo Switch stock in the coming months and even greater sales figures.

The story begins with the user of Reddit Patsuann, who sent his console for Nintendo to fix.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is rising up the production from initial 8 million to around 16 million now. A report indicates that the Japanese video game company will double production of the Nintendo Switch to meet demand. After all, the Switch is a portable console as much as it is a home console, and no one wants to walk around with a binder full of Blu-rays when they take their Switch with them on a trip. However, upon launching The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a small cloud icon appeared next to the game's title.

The process that Patsuann was able to document showed that there might already be a cloud save system in place for the Nintendo Switch, but only Nintendo now has access to it. If Nintendo can sell through all of that, then the Switch will have surpassed the Wii U's lifetime in a single year.

Patsuann edited the opening post of the thread to note that Nintendo's customer support said in an e-mail that they will be sending a new unit back, which is possible due to the hybrid console being returned in a new box. According to Nintendo, this includes "new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo, the item-stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode".
