Nintendo Switch's latest firmware update brings new features

Nintendo Targeting More Adult Games for Switch Nintendo Targeting More Adult Games for Switch

Well, Nintendo understands how risky it is to potentially break your Switch during an explosive bit of diarrhea, and how important it is to be able to transfer your games in case you break your console while you're battling to get the chocolate subway through a tunnel it just doesn't want to fit through. Though neither feature is ideal just yet, it's definitely a step in the right direction for the Switch, which was certainly feature-poor on launch. But the Switch launched with the ability to take screenshots and a promise that video recording would arrive at a later date. First, it can only record a maximum of the previous 30 seconds of gameplay. Nintendo's convertible switch console users can now transfer their saved games and user profiles to another system.

Firmware 4.0 is now available for the #Nintendo Switch, bringing with it a few exciting new features. So, if you lose or damage that Switch.you're still out of luck. All of that data, however, will be immediately deleted from the source console. From there, players can trim the clips and share them on Facebook or Twitter.

An update for Nintendo Switch this week adds video capture capabilities and save data transfer, but Nintendo quietly included another feature to the system in version 4.0.0.

I mean, there's a lot of ancillary stuff that Nintendo could do to catch up to other consoles. In the meantime, Switch owners can record their epic gaming moments in other titles, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Arms, and Splatoon 2.

Nintendo Switch has a big system update with some much-requested features: video capture and save game transfers.

The second interesting feature of transferring user profiles and saving data to a new console is very helpful to satisfy users. There is also now a pre-purchase option available for certain games on Nintendo's eShop for the Switch.

However, those two big additions aren't the only things of note lurking in this patch. The option is inside system settings under users.

Select System Update to start the process.
