Since AC games do everything in their power to prevent you from copying their save data, I'm kinda worried ACNH would follow suit with excluding the Save Data cloud feature. Since it's confirmed you get one island per console now, I can kinda see that they may just repeat history and have the island be locked to your system. Since the switch saves to the system and not the card, having my island at risk of deletion if my system breaks would be really upsetting so that's why I'm kinda nervous. Anyone else think this will be the case, or do you think they may have a backup plan in mind?

I am sure they will not allow cloud saving for AC, for the same reason they won't allow it for games like Pokemon. They don't want people to duplicate items by giving something away, then reverting to an older save that still has whatever was given away.

I wonder if there would be any way to allow for some sort of backup without fully allowing cloud saving? Maybe they could allow a weekly backup and limit how often you could use that backup.

I want them to make it hard to duplicate items but at the same time, I wouldn't want to lose everything if something happened to my save file or Switch.

Splatoon 2 disables cloud backups entirely, since their online ranking system is stored entirely on your console, no backend database. That's right -- due to Nintendo's shoddy online setup, you can't backup any of your data for that game.

Zero chance AC gets cloud backups if that's how Nintendo handles their other first party titles.

Aya just confirmed a day or so ago that NH will not have cloud saves, which is really annoying. They better have a way to back up your game somehow in case your town goes away, since that's my main fear when buying a game like that. Hardly any switch games don't disallow Cloud Saves but it seems this will be one of them.
