If you've played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on your Nintendo Switch, you may remember that you could only have one save file on per account. I found this out the hard way when I let a friend start a new file on my account and they did not heed the warning about deleting old data.

Luckily for everyone, Super Mario Odyssey is different. Each user on your Nintendo Switch can have up to five different save files, meaning you can let your friends and family plan on your account if you so choose.
