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.

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
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 21 Comments
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.
