Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Can I transfer Animal Crossing save to a new Switch?

How long has she been playing Animal Crossing? Maybe you just need your persuasion to make her give your Switch back

Over a month. Every single day. I can take my Switch from her. She wouldn't resist at all. I just feel bad making her start over. I did have the foresight to buy the game digitally with her account so the game is on the new Switch. Just none of the progress. And I added my account to her Switch Lite and downloaded a few of my games and saves.

I used to buy a ton of Switch games and I was really looking forward to xenoblade but, until they resolve this, I'm not buying any new games. Haven't purchased a new Switch game or even played my Switch in a month.

You could try something drastic in front of Ninty HQ to show them your disappointment.

It's not stupid, it's just not a priority for them. The current lack of it hasn't impacted sales, and it is almost certainly something they have in their dev bucket. This is not their first time releasing this feature late in the console dev cycle, in fact, they have every single generation since such a feature became a requirement (on the Wii). As time goes on, and Switches begin to age, then the priority for the feature will increase.

You see, its posts like this that makes people think Nintendo fans will defend anything they do...

It is stupid, as it is anti consumer in this day and age.  System transfers should be a simple no brainer, especially for a device that does not allow all game saves to be backed up on the cloud service that we PAY FOR.  Not only that, but the Switch has had two revisions that may make some people, like our original poster here, need to make use of proper cloud saves or a system transfer feature.

Just because sales are not directly impacted right now does not mean the move is not stupid and anti consumer.  That kind of ignorance leads to WiiU and X1 levels of lost launch sales for their next device due to tarnished image.  It is certainly not the only factor as there were other problems present for them as well, but it is a factor.

I couldn't care less what sort of idiotic things people think over pointing out the logical error in your post.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

That is something very bad to do to customer.

Thats nice, but there were no logical errors in my post.  It is anti consumer and currently a flaw, regardless of if you think pointing it out is idiotic or not.

Is everyone just ignoring what I posted?

It requires hacking your Switch which is not something that people will do just to transfer AC save.

I accept that, but there is a choice. If you don't want to, that's entirely on you.

Also the link doesn't work.

The link posted still works. 

How people choose more complicated physical arrangements over a bit of tinkering is beyond me, again...
