Good news for players all over the world, you don’t actually need to manually save your progress in the game. There is no manual saving option in the game that you can use. Yes, that’s right, this means that the game has an auto-saving feature that saves your progress automatically every time you quit the game. As it is an online game, it is pretty normal that there is an auto-save feature for the story progression in the game.

The game auto-saves solely because of the fact that it is an online multiplayer and mostly because everything is server-based and controlled. For this reason, you do not need to worry about losing progress every time you want to quit the game on your Nintendo Switch. However, when it comes to understanding how to save Palia on Switch, there are a few things you need to do to ensure you don’t lose progress.

First and foremost, you need to link your Palia account to your game on your Switch to ensure that the story progression is being properly saved on the servers you’re playing on and also to ensure that you won’t lose any data if you do choose to uninstall the game. Other than that, there’s not much you need to do. 

One thing you do need to keep in mind is that, even though the game will save your progress automatically because of the auto-save feature, your Switch will still give you a warning every time you try to quit the game without “saving.” Therefore, every time you go to quit the game, just ignore the warning dialog box that pops up saying “You’ll lose your unsaved progress, are you sure you want to quit the game?” and quit the game. Rest assured that your story progression will be saved and the next time you boot the game back up, it will be exactly where you left off.
