Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Nintendo Removes Notice of Save Data Recovery With Another Message

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The most recent Nintendo Direct offered us many details about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the new installment of the franchise that will release on Switch. The broadcast of the Direct was not saved from the controversy, as Nintendo withdrew the original YouTube video shortly after re-uploading it.

The players realized that the company modified the video and removed an important detail. The Direct talked about various issues related to the game, including the lack of support with the save in the cloud.

In case you do not remember, Nintendo said that, despite the lack of such a function, players could save their game in case their data was lost or something happened to their console. The original video mentioned that this process could only be done once.

“Nintendo Switch Online members can only have save data recovered one time due to loss or damage of the system,” the video originally said. However, the new version of Direct deleted that message.

This modification is not necessarily bad news, as it could be that Nintendo is planning a better way to offer the restoration of save data. In the new video, the following message is displayed: “More details on save data recovery functionality will be shared at a future date.”

Currently, it is not known what was the intention of Nintendo to modify the message. Some players believe that the company hid the information since it was not very well received by the community. However, most believe that Nintendo will make improvements in this regard in its game recovery service.

We will have to wait to know more about it. Surely Nintendo will give an update on the subject in the coming days. Another detail of the Direct caught the attention of the players about gravestones appearing in the title.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons will release on Nintendo Switch on March 20.
