Save Data Cloud
Get peace of mind with Save Data Cloud backup
Back up your game save data to the cloud*. This makes it easy to retrieve your game data if you lose your system or start using a new one.
Game data will automatically save to the cloud when you have an internet connection. No complicated settings or updates required.
Move save data between systems
Save data is linked to your Nintendo Account, so you can access it by signing in. If you move to a new system, you can pick up right where you left off in your game by downloading your data.
