Cloud Saves Disappear If Your Nintendo Switch Online Subscription Ends

The new Pokémon Switch bundle box featuring a Switch Online notice on the side

In other "Nintendo's being weird about online again" news, you also won't be able to play your Switch Online NES games without a weekly online check-in.

But perhaps the most interesting news from Nintendo Direct was that a swath of popular board games is coming to your Switch console.

One of the Nintendo Switch's greatest asset is its portability, so it seems odd to not allow its players to be away from Internet more than a week to play NES games. "Nintendo Switch Online also uses the Save Data Cloud, so the same applies", reads the FAQ.

The Nintendo Direct presentation kicked off with a short clip from the upcoming Luigi Mansion game, which is called, Luigi's Mansion 3. There's also a family plan that costs $34.99, but can support up to 8 Nintendo Accounts. That doesn't appear to be the case with the Switch unless Nintendo clarifies further in the future. These include a cute customised console with a Poke Ball Plus and the Let's Go Pikachu game.

Terry's Chelsea return down to him, says Sarri
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says he would like John Terry back at the club in a coaching role. Similar to my name. 'We can improve and that's what I feel in training'.

Save data stored with Save Data Cloud can not be kept outside of the duration of your Nintendo Switch Online membership.

After my Nintendo Switch Online membership expires, will my online save data and my Nintendo Entertainment System™ - Nintendo Switch Online data be erased?

In other words, if you don't have automatic renewal on, you're playing with fire with your cloud saves.

More than likely, Nintendo specifically mentioned Fortnite as an exception to the model due to its enormous popularity and presence among adolescent gamers, a demographic less likely to be able to pay for the membership.
