Information received about Switch prior to the console’s launch indicated that you’d be able to easily transfer digital games between systems. So long as you have a Nintendo Account, it should be possible. Nintendo has since published information on its support site that explains how you can go about transferring games. And fortunately, it’s pretty simple.

Below are the full steps:

System: Switch (reviewed) / Wii U
Release date: March 3, 2017
Developer: Nintendo
Publisher Nintendo

The Legend of Zelda’s prolific, seminal history has been striking the hearts of players across the globe for three decades. Attachment fans have with the series has withstood the test of time thanks to its immense and vibrant world of Hyrule, memorable characters, iconic set pieces, composition, and more. Now the newest Zelda game is finally here and puts players back in Hyrule where they must protect the kingdom from the ferocious evil that is Calamity Ganon after being asleep for 100 years. Breath of the Wild breaks out of a lot of classic Zelda traits, while instilling new ones and simultaneously making the world and game familiar for veterans, as well as accessible and eye-opening to new players alike. Breath of the Wild is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, not just for Zelda standards, but for gaming as a whole.

Niantic CEO John Hanke previously indicated that Pokemon GO’s lore would be expanded in the coming months. However, in an interview with Polygon, senior product manager Tatsuo Nomura mentioned that it isn’t a top priority currently. That’s simply because Niantic is “a very small team and we can only do so much at once.”

Nomura added:

“It’s not like we’re forgetting [about the characters], but it’s just resource-wise, what we are doing next … Do we do multiplayer and gen two versus putting out more narrative?. So far, it’s not being our focus, but we are not leaving it behind. I personally still want to think a lot more stories behind them and narratives.”

Niantic is currently focusing on building new functionality of Pokemon GO. This includes trading as well as other multiplayer features.


Update: We’re now live!

Dennis will be hosting a live stream for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in about an hour from now on our YouTube page, though you can also watch it via the embed below. The first half will be from the start of the game to avoid spoilers, while the latter half will concentrate more on the latter sections. Join us for an early look at the new Zelda ahead of tomorrow’s official launch.

Nintendo will be expanding friends functionality in the future, the company has revealed. In a statement provided to Polygon, information was shared about other ways in which you’ll be able to connect with others.

First, Nintendo is planning on having users from social networking services be listed as friend candidates similar to Miitomo and Super Mario Run. You’ll also be able to send a friend request to those associated with your Nintendo Network ID (Wii U / Miiverse) and 3DS. Last but not least, select games will let you “use an in-game interface to send friend requests.”

Nintendo’s full statement reads:

All game saves for Switch are directly stored on the console. Saves can’t be recorded on a microSD card, and it seems that they can’t be transferred in any way – at least for now. So if you were to purchase a new Switch for whatever reason, your saves will be stuck on the original device.

As for downloading games and taking screenshots, these can be moved freely between the system and microSD card. This can be accomplished in the Data Management menu.

Switch demos have no play limits

Wii U and 3DS demos both impose play limits. For most of these downloads, you can only play them a certain amount of times before they become locked and are inaccessible. Most limits are at around thirty, but some are much lower.

Thankfully, with Switch, play limits are gone. Demos for the likes of Snipperclips, Dragon Quest Heroes I-II, and Puyo Puyo Tetris allow you to load them up as many times as you please. It’s certainly a change that will sit well with Switch owners.


This week’s North American Nintendo Downloads are as follows:

Switch is region free in just about every way possible. Physical games can be played regardless of the region where you purchase them. And on the eShop, accessing different versions of the store is simple.

Let’s say you wanted to load up the Japanese eShop on a North American Switch. As long as you have a Japanese account, you can log in to the Japanese eShop on the system. Basically, you just need a relevant account in the eShop region you want to access.

Just one word of caution: games and DLC are paired together. That means both need to be from the same region in order to work properly.
