How to transfer your Nintendo Switch user and save data

Adjust Comment Print

Nintendo hasn't fully confirmed this just yet, but we could see more features introduced as soon as next week, as Super Mario Odyssey has been confirmed for video capture. Wireless audio while in dock mode is actually a pretty useful feature considering the standard docked control scheme doesn't include an audio jack for headphones by default. A missed opportunity, for sure.

Along with the ability to transfer save files and capture video, the Nintendo Switch's 4.0 firmware update seems to have come with a hidden bonus: support for USB-based wireless headphones, via Engadget. Nintendo Switch's success was also bolstered by continuing 3DS device family sales, as well as Super NES Classic Edition sales, both of which helped it not only lead, but essentially dominate the video game hardware market.

The video capture feature on the Nintendo Switch automatically records 30 seconds of gameplay and stores the video file in the console's album. It can be initiated through the System Settings menu, where a new Transfer Your User and Save Data option will appear under Users.

Players can choose to share it on Facebook or Twitter. Once the fantastic event has occurred, hold down the Capture button and about 30 seconds from the previous gameplay will automatically be saved.

Also be sure that the target console has enough memory available for the new profile's data.

Those are March's console launch title "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", April's "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", June's "Arms", and July's "Splatoon 2".

Saved data and user information on Switch consoles can now be easily transferred wirelessly.

In this way, users will be sharing footage from Nintendo's four most high-profile Switch releases to date.
