Petition to Epic Games
Add Save The World to Nintendo Switch Version of Fortnite
Fortnite’s PvE Mode, “Save the World,” is a crucial part of the game. Although it’s nowhere near as popular as the phenomenon that is the game’s Battle Royale Mode, it’s still part of what makes Fortnite... Fortnite. Unlike the Battle Royale Mode, Save The World is currently in Early Access, and costs money to be played. This is likely part of the reason why the mode doesn’t get as much attention as Battle Royale. Once the mode is finished and it becomes free, as Epic Games has stated will happen later this year, it will probably gain a lot more players. And when that happens, it should already be available to play on Nintendo Switch. One of the main reasons Save The World is so important is because it allows the player to obtain free V-Bucks, the game’s digital currency, used to buy things like cosmetics and emotes in the in-game store. Save the World is what makes these items affordable. The only other way to get V-Bucks in Battle Royale Mode is an occasional 100 as a reward on a Battle Pass, which itself costs 950 V-Bucks, or to buy them with real money, at a conversion rate of 100 V-Bucks per real world currency. (Or 1 V-Buck per Yen in Japan) In comparison to most other free-to-play games, Fortnite’s items are more on the expensive side. Simple costumes for your player characters can cost as much as $20 (€20, 2,000¥, etc.) worth of V-Bucks. These prices are so high because of how easily V-Bucks can be obtained in Save The World. However, if the game is being played on Nintendo Switch, the only way to obtain V-Bucks in bulk is to buy them with real world money. While this may also be true for players on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 who haven’t purchased Save The World, they at least have to option to buy it, but Switch players don’t. Mobile players also don’t have the option, but Epic Games has said that that is because the mode would take up too much space on a phone or tablet. This argument is not valid for Nintendo Switch, which uses Micro SD Cards and therefore can fit up to 512 Gigabytes of data if the owner is willing to pay for such a large size. Epic Games has given little to no good reason as to why Save the World isn’t available on Nintendo Switch. In fact, there is a glitch on the Nintendo Switch version of the game that can cause the option to play Save the World to appear, as seen in this video. Unfortunately, the way to trigger the glitch is unknown, and the player who made the video hasn’t purchased the mode, so there’s no way to know if it would have loaded properly. However, this proves that Epic Games had at one point planned to include Save the World on Nintendo Switch, or else this screen wouldn’t exist in that version of the game at all. This raises the question as to why it was removed, and more importantly, if it will be added. An Epic Games representative has stated that there are no plans to put the mode on Switch, but clearly that wasn’t always the case. There are also a lot of players who started on another console and bought Save The World, only to move to Nintendo Switch and no longer be able to access the mode they paid a lot of money for. This was a problem a lot of players had with the mobile version of the game. They were upset they couldn’t take the Save The World experience with them wherever they went. One of the biggest attributes of Fortnite in Nintendo Switch is that it lets you take the game anywhere, without needing to use the mobile version’s touch controls. But right now, Save the World isn’t part of that deal. The only way to play the mode out of the house right now is to play it on a laptop, and not many people have a laptop that can handle a game like Fortnite. Right now, Epic Games has been heavily focusing on the more popular Battle Royale Mode. But as soon as they get around to finishing Save the World and making it free, its popularity is going to blow up. And when that happens, Switch players shouldn’t have to wait any longer than the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 players to be able to access it. With all of that exposition, the goal of this petition is to show Epic Games that there are Fortnite Players out there who want the Save The World Mode to be playable on Nintendo Switch. If you’re one of those players, please sign your name and share the petition with your friends to help us reach our goal of at least 10,000 signatures.
Petition to Nintendo, The Pokemon Company, GameFreak Inc.
Have GameFreak incorporate all 800+ Pokémon into Sword and Shield
The apparent fact that GameFreak will not be incorporating Pokémon from all 7 Generations in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield takes the heart out of a beloved franchise. Let’s send a clear message that this franchise is too important to us for us to sit idly by while they destroy it. Keep flooding the official Twitter with #BringBackTheNationalDex, and share, share, share! Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit are our friends. Fill out a complaint at the official Pokémon support page here, and most importantly share with attention grabbers. Small websites that do articles on video games are a good place to start, as well as getting the attention of popular youtubers who are also frustrated by the news. As I have said before, though this petition will likely not change anything before the release date, it is so important to let GameFreak and Nintendo know that we care about the franchise and about bringing all of our favorite Pokémon to a new home on Switch. Thank you all for your support! Picture from u/bionui123 of r/Pokémon

Ask Nintendo to allow Backup Game Saves in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
In an interview published in the french outlet Gamekult, the Director and Producer of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Aya Kyogoku and Hisashi Nogami, revealed that the new game wouldn’t feature the option of cloud saves, which had been introduced in combination with the paid Nintendo Switch Online membership. This is unlike most other Switch titles. Since then, several outlets have translated said article and quote the reason for this decision being that the team behind the game are hoping to “avoid manipulating time”, as that is “one of the founding principles of the game.” Animal Crossing is a franchise known and beloved by its fans for its wholesome gameplay and long-term playability. Since its first iteration on the Nintendo GameCube, the game has only been released once for each new console, with the gap between titles widening. Many players spend hundreds - often up to thousands of hours - on one of these games, building up their fictional towns and developing friendships with its inhabitants.This is why we would like Nintendo to reconsider the decision to disable cloud saves and therefore withhold the only option for players to backup their game saves. Aside from the risk of losing a portable console like the Switch or having it be stolen or broken, there have been instances where even players only keeping their system at home lost all their save data - namely many cases in 2018 where non-Nintendo made Switch chargers could completely destroy the system because of incompatibility. With that one problem now being known, there is no guarantee that the Switch is safe from any save-file damaging issues for the remainder of its lifetime.Seeing this, and considering how many hours players are likely to invest into Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we see it necessary that users should have access to Nintendo’s cloud save functionality or be given another option to backup their game saves. This could be realized by allowing players to download their backup data in a limited manner: be it by implementing time intervals and therefore limiting the amount of downloads of the player’s data per year, or setting a waiting period before the latest save can be downloaded. There are also alternative options Nintendo could explore, like allowing users to create backups on their own storage media.All in all, we believe that, when considering the amount of time many players devote to games in this franchise, the fact that Animal Crossing is a real-time game (e.g. losing a year’s worth of game progression would need another whole year to regain it) and under the prospect of new issues appearing regarding the Switch’s data storage, there should be at least some way to ensure that players will be able to recover their save data in case of any mishaps.

Add Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 for the Nintendo Switch
Introduction: Hello, I have made this petition cause I play Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare and its sequel and I LOVE THOSE 2 GAMES. It's just that, what if people who like Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare but don't own a PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, or a PC, and only has a Wii U. Well many people asked for PvZ GW on the Wii U but it didn't happen... Why I think Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 should be on the Switch: Now they made a sequel called Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, and its on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. But its not on a Nintendo console... Look, people who own a Nintendo console and really want Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 on a Nintendo console, then its the Nintendo Switch they should add it to. The Wii U is discontinued so theres no point adding a game to the Wii U when we have a new Nintendo console called the Nintendo Switch. We need to tell EA and Popcap that Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 MUST be on the Switch, Nintendo fans are tired of being ignored on. The reason why I think PvZ GW2 should be on the Switch is cause, look at Paladins, look at Fortnite, look at Warframe (well its being added to the switch soon), look at DOOM, they're all on the Nintendo Switch and they run well on the Switch. Heck, if they can run well on the Switch, then PvZ GW2 can run well. Let's get EA and Popcap to finally listen to us and add PvZ GW2 to the Switch!
Petition to XSeed Games
Physical Copy of Corpse Party Blood Drive on Nintendo Switch
Corpse Party Blood Drive came to the Nintendo Switch on October 10th 2019. XSEED Games has communicated that it will be released digitally to the Nintendo eShop exclusively. There has been a lot of feedback that XSEED Games has received regarding the digital exclusivity of the game. I have read that many fans have been requesting that XSEED release a physical copy of the game too. We have received physical copies of Corpse Party Blood Drive on the PS Vita and Corpse Party on the Nintendo 3DS. It is clear that the Corpse Party series has a strong fan base. It is also clear that out of that fan base there is demand for a physical release of Corpse Party Blood Drive on the Nintendo Switch. XSEED Games have been communicating that they are taking in feedback. They have stated that if there is enough demand, they will consider a physical release. Let us unite as the Corpse Party fan base and show XSEED Games that there is high demand for a physical release.

Bring Back Meow and Bow to the Animal Crossing Switch Game
Meow and Bow are some of the most creative, cute, and lovable Animal Crossing characters. Sadly, their only appearance was in a Japan exclusive Animal Crossing 64 game. Obviously, not everyone has the ability to play these games. Why weren't these novel, cute characters brought back for newer games? The world may never know. I've heard several others echo my wish for these characters to return. Nintendo, please strongly consider introducing these characters to a wider audience and a new generation. Not everyone can speak Japanese, so even if we got the games they were in, we wouldn't be able to enjoy them as intended. These characters are guaranteed to be well loved, so, Nintendo, please bring them back. A robot cat and dog? What's not to love? From the long time Animal Crossing fan, Luca Wight, among many others
Petition to Blizzard Entertainment
Overwatch Port to Nintendo Switch announced at BlizzCon 2019
• Yes, people want it! (Search “Nintendo Switch” on Blizzard’s Forums and you’ll find over 70 pages. Switch is growing, find some stats at Google and you’ll find incredible numbers!) • Don’t blame Nintendo.. (we all know Nintendo is strict, but beside this there are many companies who made it and succeed & it would be a shame if Blizzard couldn’t. Show us we’re wrong! You could collaborate and maybe make some amiibos for Switch-exclusive content! Also other first-party games has been ported too like Fortnite, Wolfenstein, Skyrim, Minecraft, and some Telltale games) • The Switch could handle it (it runs on 1080p 30FPS // 720p 60FPS, and updates can be easily downloaded - we know you have your own-made engine to let Overwatch stay “Blizzard”, & yes - we know that you’re not in for commercial game engines..) And we know that will be the challenge. This petition will show you the amount of people of the crowd who are begging you to let some (maybe pro-Switch) staff members put effort in creating a Switch engine. If BlizzCon 2019 is too early to announce, please let us at least know if development or any plan is going to be on! - courtesy of a Switch owner currently playing Paladins.
Petition to Nintendo
Finish Pikmin 4
Dear Nintendo, Pikmin 4 has been in development for way too long, and it has been stated many times that I was almost finished. Pikmin is my favorite game series and I just want it to be finished. I know a lot of other people who feel the same way. This game has brought much joy to my childhood and I want a new generation to feel the same. These games are masterpieces and I have been so hyped about Pikmin 4 since it was confirmed. At this point, that confirmation seems like it was just made to please the fans. If you really want to please the fans, finish the game. It would make a lot of people very happy. Honestly, it would be a sensation if you guys do develop it. I know it will. Now, I know there is the possibility that Hey Pikmin! was Pikmin 4, but that game wasn’t even canon. Just another thing to please the fans. And believe me, none of us were pleased. We just want another main line game in the Pikmin series. If you have not made the game because you are lacking ideas, I suggest you go check out DazzReviews on YouTube. He has so many great ideas for this series. I think if this is the problem, his videos would really benefit you guys. I guess this petition is just about getting this message across to Nintendo. I would really enjoy if this game was made, however, if it is not made, or this petition is not successful, I will not be mad because because I understand the struggle it would be.
