As the launch of the Nintendo Switch Online service draws closer, we still know very little about the finer details. Fortunately, third-party developers aren't being as tight-lipped as Nintendo. Following the Arena of Valor developer Tencent confirming free-to-play games would remain accessible after online services launched on Nintendo's device, Blizzard has now revealed more information about the incoming cloud services.
Speaking to Nintendo Soup, Diablo III Eternal Collection associate producer Matt Cederquist revealed save files for games on the Switch will be automatically uploaded to cloud services on a regular basis, with no manual user action required. How frequently online saves will be backed up is unknown.
Cederquist also explained how save data in the cloud would be seamlessly transferable to other Nintendo Switch systems - allowing players to continue their session on a friend or family member's device. Discussing Diablo III's specific cloud features on the Switch, the Blizzard associate producer said saves including achievements and campaign progress would go straight to the cloud.
Does being able to move data between systems appeal to you? Is this the kind of cloud service you hoped for? Tell us below.
