A developer is testing a program to backup save games on the Nintendo Switch. That is not possible by default, so gamers lose their progress if they reset their console.
Making a Checkpoint prototype for the Switch took about two weeks, says Giordano. He has now distributed a beta version of the program to testers and well-known Switch developers, in order to remove bugs before a public release is released.
The Switch does not normally support backup of save games. As a result, players lose their progress in games if they lose the console or reset their console. Nintendo has not yet responded, but does not seem to intend to incorporate this feature into the Switch itself. The Japanese company released its newest console a little over a year ago.
