The Japanese multinational electronics and video game company has revealed that not everyone will benefit from the new feature - which will allow players to back up their saves so that they're never lost for good - in order to avoid cheating.

A spokesperson for Nintendo said: "The vast majority of Nintendo Switch games will support Save Data Cloud backup. However, in certain games this feature would make it possible to, for example, regain items that had been traded to other players, or revert to a higher online multiplayer ranking that had been lost. To ensure fair play, Save Data Cloud backup may not be enabled for such games. To ensure that Save Data Cloud backups cannot be used to unfairly affect online multiplayer rankings, the feature will not be enabled in Splatoon 2.'

Although the company are yet to release a full list of games not supported by the new function, it's believed the upcoming 'Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu!/Eevee!' will not support cloud saving, and neither will third party games 'Dark Souls Remastered', 'Dead Cells', 'FIFA 19', and 'NBA 2K19'.
