Latest Nintendo Switch Update Adds Ability To Transfer Saves Across Systems

Latest Nintendo Switch Update Adds Ability To Transfer Saves Across Systems The latest Nintendo Switch system update, version 8.0.0, is out today, bringing with it the ability to transfer individual save data between Switch consoles. Before the update, users were relegated to transferring all user and save data between Switch systems, which was previously updated back with version 4.0.0 of the software in October 2017. For users who hadn’t created separate profiles, Now individual pieces of save data can be swapped between systems as users like. It’s a move that makes sense ahead of Nintendo’s rumored new Switch systems reportedly releasing later this summer, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.

The characters from Rare’s classic platforming series “Banjo-Kazooie” are coming to “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” later this year, Nintendo announced during its E3 2019 Direct on Tuesday.

For the uninitiated, Banjo is a bear and Kazooie is a big red bird. While Banjo first appeared in “Diddy Kong Racing” on the Nintendo 64 in 1997, he got his first solo title — and his feathery sidekick — a year later on the same platform. The first “Banjo-Kazooie” was a critical and commercial success, and it spawned a number of sequels up until 2008.

Additionally, Nintendo revealed the protagonist from the role-playing game “Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age” is coming to “Smash” this summer. Simply called Hero, he represents the main character from several games in the long-running series, including “Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation,” “Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen,” and “Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.”

The game topped the second most popular game on the system, “Super Mario Odyssey,” by more than 2 million. “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” took the number three spot for the system with 13.81 million copies sold to date, “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” was number four with 12.77 copies, and more 10.63 million copies of “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and  “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!” were sold, rounding out the top five.

“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” first launched in December 2018 and has sold more than 13.81 million copies worldwide, making it the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch title. Between January and March, about 26% of consumers who bought a new Switch console played “Smash” on their first day of using the system, Nintendo said in a recent report.

E3 2019 is coming to Los Angeles on June 11 through 13, and we’ll cover all the highlights of the event here at Variety as well.
