The latest Nintendo Switch firmware update has been released. Version 10.1.0 is the first firmware update since 10.0.0 was released back in April, but Nintendo Switch owners might be disappointed to find that there isn’t anything all that exciting in this latest update.
According to Nintendo, the update includes “system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.” Full patch notes have yet to be released by the company, but it seems like Switch owners shouldn’t expect anything too exciting from this one.
This is the smallest update that’s been released in recent months, and according to the official support patch notes, sees the return of sweet stability improvements.
Fortunately, Nintendo Switch owners have plenty of other things to get excited about this week! On July 15th, three retro releases will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online service: Immortal, Natsume Championship Wrestling, and Donkey Kong Country.
The three latest additions to the service were announced last week, and the return of Donkey Kong Country seems to have quite a few fans excited! The 1994 platformer is one of the most famous games in Nintendo history, so it should be perfect for longtime fans and newcomers alike.
The Nintendo Switch is available globally now. Nintendo released its hybrid platform back in March of 2017. A handheld-only version of the platform, the Nintendo Switch Lite, was released in September of last year. The Switch Lite is dedicated to handheld play and comes in four colors – yellow, gray, coral and turquoise.
Your Switch should automatically download this update while it’s connected to the internet, otherwise, you can manually update it from the System Settings menu.
This update follows on from version 10.0.4, which was released at the beginning of last month, and resolved an issue with credit cards. Have you installed version 10.1.0 yet?
