Nintendo hardware, especially its handhelds, are known to be tough. Game Boys have survived bombings, and the original model DS was designed from the start to survive a fall from chest height (Nintendo assumed people would drop their DS while placing the handheld in their breast pocket). YouTube channel UnlockRiver.com decided to take things a little further, or more appropriately, a lot further, by flying their Switch 1000 feet into the air and dropping it. I won’t spoil the ending, but it’s worth seeing what happens.
At the beginning of the video, the host expresses fear at dropping his Switch from the sky as he has put some time into Zelda. You know what would alleviate that fear? The ability to transfer or back up save files!
