I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

      LOL, feel bad for the idiots that have to pay $20 for save backups and ancient VC games, while hackers get to do it for free. Leave it to Nintendo to drive people to hack.

    great to hear that!

    my biggest hope is that we get an app that allows us to unlock amiibo content in all games without having the specific amiibos needed,as amiibos are not sold in my country.

    Use with discretion, it is backing up the saves ok, but the restore function is giving errors.

    “Like Sony with the PSVita, Nintendo also thinks that it’s funny to lock down saves on a device and not provide an easy official way to back them up locally.”

    Well, Sony offered the option to backup saves to your PC and transfer them between systems via CMA.

    Is kind of unfair to put them in the same level, when the switch has no way at all to backup saves or transfer them between systems, but the vita actually did.

    • Aurora says:

      Yeah, I know it’s not the same but on the Vita, you had to back up the entire game so it’s still not an easy way.

      I agree however, it’s not as bad but it’s still stupid and bad.

      They are fixing some bugs and adviced all to stop using the app. They will do a re-release soon.
