Resident Evil 7 on Nintendo Switch came as a surprise. First it wasn’t available outside of the Japanese e-shop and on the other hand, there was not a physical version of the game which made a lot of players unhappy.
Besides streaming the game on Nintendo Switch along with an option of only 180 days it is quite disappointing to know that your save data is not guaranteed.
This was revealed by Capcom on their official site for Nintendo Siwtch cloud version which states that:
Save data of “BIOHAZARD 7 resident evil cloud version” is saved on the server side, and if the “validity period” of the “voucher” ends, data retention is not guaranteed. Also, even during the valid term of the “Usage Ticket”, we will not guarantee surely that your save data is stored without defects and that it will be read out.
In short, the company makes no promises that your data will be saved online on their servers in case your 180 days pass or in a case if some error occurs causing the data to get corrupt. Which means you can lose it all and you’ll have to start it all over again which is terrifying for a lengthy game like Resident Evil 7.
Also, there is no other solution to this as Switch users can’t save the data locally. It is really disappointing to know that the only game featuring cloud saves is having so much trouble after this feature was the most requested on the console due to the limitation of storage.
We hope that Capcom does something about it so we can play Resident Evil 7 on Switch without being worried about a data loss.
In other news, Resident Evil 8 is already in works, ready to ride the success 0f Resident Evil 7.
