New Switch Firmware Update Also Avaliable for Joy-Con Controllers

Nintendo has released the latest #Update for the Switch, update 4.0.0, ahead of all the big releases for Fall. This feature supports the games "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", "Arms" and "Splatoon 2".

After these conditions are met, Nintendo will add options for one, three, or five minutes through another firmware patch, which would work for all games with support, and accordingly will use more storage on the Switch.

On this console go into the system settings and once again go into Users and select Transfer Your User and Save Data.

In addition, players can now pre-purchase and pre-load selected games from the eShop, allowing users to play new games as soon as they arrive. All of that data, however, will be immediately deleted from the source console.

For more information on how to transfer, head over to Nintendo's support page for a breakdown on what is required. It can be launched by pressing and holding the dedicated screen capture button of the hybrid console, and once recording is finished, the video will be saved to the Nintendo Switch album.

They can then manually trim the beginning and ending of the 30-second clip as they want before uploading to either a Facebook or Twitter account. This brings about several major much requested features including video capture and save game transfers. Once the wonderful event has occurred, hold down the Capture button and about 30 seconds from the previous gameplay will automatically be saved. That said, only four games now support the new function: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and ARMS. In addition to the strong Switch sales, the company said that the combined sales for the Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and Super Nintendo Classic made up 2/3 of the USA hardware market.

Combining the sales of the Nintendo Switch with that of the Nintendo 3DS and the SNES Classic Edition, Nintendo systems actually made up two-thirds of the total video game hardware sales in September. For any further need, you can take notes.
