Nintendo has removed reference to a limit to the number of times Animal Crossing: New Horizon players will be able to request save restores, in the event of loss or theft.
In a Nintendo Direct video published on Thursday, the platform holder confirmed that the Switch title will not support cloud saves. Instead, Nintendo said it would provide its own server backup in special circumstances.
The video’s small print revealed such save restores would be limited to one per user, however Nintendo has seemingly now removed this text and replaced it with a note stating that more details “will be shared at a later date.”
The revision could suggest Nintendo is considering revising the cap, however it’s not confirmation of any change of plans either.
In its Nintendo Direct video on Thursday, Nintendo further detailed Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ online features.
Nintendo said New Horizons will not support the ability to transfer save files from one Switch console to another. However, a function specific to the game enabling users and save data to be moved to another console is planned for “later this year”.
NookLink will also let players scan QR code patterns of custom designs, including those from past 3DS Animal Crossing instalments New Leaf and Happy Home Designer.
With one Nintendo Switch system and one game, up to eight players will be able live on the same island and up to four can play at the same time, it said.
With additional systems and games, up to eight players can play on the same island at the same time via local wireless or online play.
Only one island can exist per Switch console, irrespective of the number of users registered to or copies of the game used on one console.
Nintendo Switch Online membership is required for online features.
