Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version for Switch Does Not Guarantee Preservation of Save Data


Capcom surprised everyone when a few days ago it launched Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Cloud Version on Switch in Japan, giving Nintendo users the chance to play the new chapter in the historical horror saga through cloud technology.

As you know, starting from last May 24, the Japanese players can buy a ticket that guarantees 180 days of play at the price of 2000 yen (about 15 euros), however it must be emphasized that the save data of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Cloud Version are not stored on the console, instead they are stored on Capcom servers.


Well, after taking a look at the conditions of use on the official Japanese website, it was reported that apparently, Capcom does not guarantee the preservation of the save data files after 180 days and that, technically, it does not even guarantee that the data cannot be lost during the subscription period.

Save data of “BIOHAZARD 7 resident evil cloud version” is saved on the server side, and data retention cannot be guaranteed if the “validity period” of “voucher” ends. Also, even during the valid term of the “Usage Ticket”, we will not guarantee surely that your save data is stored without defects and that it will be read out,” can be read on the official website.

Obviously, this should be a remote possibility, but the presence of this clarification has caused some concern among the players. We remind readers that at the moment there is no official statement regarding a possible arrival of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Cloud Version in Europe and North America.
