Nintendo has recently updated its official game page for Splatoon 3 - revealing that the third entry will support cloud saves. The downside is that cloud saves will only be compatible with offline play data.
Here''s the full footnote from Nintendo''s game page, which also explains how membership is required to have access to additional features online:
Save Data Cloud is compatible with offline play data only.
Membership in Nintendo Switch Online is required for online features, which is not available in all countries. Internet access is required for online features, according to terms. nintendo.com/switch-online
Splatoon 2 did not provide cloud save assistance, and although Splatoon 3 will not provide additional cloud support for the game''s online offerings, this is at least a move in the right direction.
There is still no understanding at this point how exact data will be used for Splatoon 3''s online components.
