New Switch Firmware Update Also Avaliable for Joy-Con Controllers

Adjust Comment Print

Turns out Nintendo rolled out another pretty useful feature with Switch OS version 4.0.0 but curiously kept it a secret. It's the biggest update for the system since it was released back in March. Just attach your Joy-Cons to the Switch unit and head over to the Controller section of the System Settings menu.

Lastly, albeit slightly lower key, Nintendo has added USB headphone support, enabling players to make use of a variety of headphones including wireless variants. The update suggests it will work on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 1.3.0 but the game is still in 1.2.1 version and an update is expected to be rolled out soon.

DOOM, the latest entry in the series developed by id Software, is hitting Nintendo Switch (Amazon, $299.99) in all regions next month, but it's been confirmed that the game will not be taking advantage of all of the console's unique features, such as motion controls. This recording will be kept in your album.

Nintendo has also declared that many other games will also add video capture support in the future. The great update for Nintendo Switch also supports other games like Splatoon 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Users now have more customization options with new icons for Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild. Also, you will have the ability to pre-purchase and pre-load particular games from the eShop. Wireless audio while in dock mode is actually a pretty useful feature considering the standard docked control scheme doesn't include an audio jack for headphones by default. The new patch also brings changes to wireless connectivity.

Saved data and user information on Switch consoles can now be easily transferred wirelessly. Gamers will be able to enjoy games differently now.
