There were a number of notable announcements as part of the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast, including a slew of Final Fantasy titles making their way to the Switch in addition to new installments in the Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing series. Thankfully, cloud saves will be coming to the console in five days via Nintendo Switch Online, but there are some major caveats.

Q. After my Nintendo Switch Online subscription expires, will my Save Data Cloud files and Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online save data be erased? Xbox One cloud saves are kept forever, whilst PlayStation Plus cloud saves are kept for six months after your subscription expires. Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online also uses the Save Data Cloud, so the same applies.

As we previously reported, many games will not support cloud saves even with Nintendo Switch Online, including Splatoon 2, Pokémon: Let's Go, NBA 2K19, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Dead Cells, and Dark Souls Remastered.

Nintendo's approach of simply wiping your saves seems like a very consumer-unfriendly move, and one that will no doubt cause more anger and frustration over a service which doesn't appear to be offering quite enough for its £17.99 / $19.99 price tag - especially when the main selling point (playing games online) has already been free for 18 months.

When asked for comment by Kotaku UK, Nintendo replied: "Nintendo does not comment on rumour and speculation", but, even in the absence of official word, it seems pretty obvious that the company has prepared to eventually release SNES controllers for Switch (which also means SNES games).

Can Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online only be played where I have an active internet connection? Ultimate, as well as an adapter that enables you to play with it on Nintendo Switch.
