Earlier today, we got a look at a Japanese game box that included a blurb stating that the game supported cloud saves. The fact that this was printed on the box shows that perhaps all games won't support cloud saves. Now we have a bit more information from our friends over at Nintendo Life, who have talked to an anonymous source familiar with the situation.
- developers now have a tick box when submitting games to Nintendo, with 'Yes, support it' or 'No, don't' options for cloud saves
- this box has to be checked one way or another to proceed
- this is the only action developers have to take, with Nintendo handling the rest
Why a developer wouldn't include cloud save support for their game is beyond us, but the option is there. This would also seem to indicate that games already released would need to be updated to get cloud support.
