Zelda: Link's awakening will take care of the cloud savings, despite previous evidence contrary
Everyone, a great sigh of relief. Although it recently looks like the upcoming remake of The legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening would not support cloud backups, it turns out that this will be.
Until recently, Nintendo UK of product list page for Link's Awakening said that the game would not support the cloud backup functionality with Nintendo Switch Online. For those who may not know, subscribers from the Nintendo Switch Online service can save the backup data of their games on a cloud, in case something is happening in the backup data of their physical switches. However, for various reasons, some games are not compatible with this cloud backup functionality. Link's awakening would be one of them for any reason.
Fortunately, it turned out to be wrong. Nintendo Life The User Quarth recently contacted Nintendo UK, who was able to confirm that Link's Awakening supports the cloud backup functionality and that any message on the product page indicating the opposite has been sent by mistake. The complete declaration of Nintendo UK on this subject is as follows:
Please contact the Nintendo UK customer assistance team concerning your question on the official page of "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening".
We are sorry to inform you that we do not find any mention of the non-charge of Save Data Cloud for this software on the page you mentioned.
On the other hand, by checking the characteristics of the game on its 'Details' section, we can see the cloud of backup data listed as one of these characteristics.
This indicates that the software will actually be compatible for use with Save Data Cloud of Nintendo Switch Online, as also indicated on the Nintendo Eshop page on this same software.
If you have noticed that this information is displayed otherwise on other official pages, please inform us.
The legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening will be launched on the switch on September 20.
