It sounds like the new download-based holidays are in part meant to prevent date scumming, though it strikes me as a little silly to go to those lengths for what amounts to a bunch of cosmetic doodads.
The save system fragility is worrying to me - only one emergency port from one console to another in the case of console death? What about if I buy a Switch Pro in a year and don’t wanna lose progress?
The game looks neat and I’m excited about the idea of finally getting into the series, but Nintendo does some goofy stuff. Don’t even get me started on friend codes and chat limitations on this thing -.-
