Here is all you need to know about the announcements made at the September 13 Nintendo Direct update.

In an FAQ on the Nintendo website, the company states that cloud saves won't be stored "outside the duration" of a user's Switch Online membership, suggesting all data will be erased as soon as players stop shelling out for the online plan.

Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct presentation was broadcast last night and a video of the event has now been uploaded to YouTube for your consumption (embedded below this article).
