Nintendo Revamps Switch With New Features Via OS Update

X

Nintendo has released version 4.0 update of its Switch console, adding several new features to its operating system.

Game Capture

The capture button located directly under the directional pads is now able to capture the last 30 seconds of gameplay. The capture button previously only allowed for screenshots, but now gamers just need to hold the button to begin capturing gameplay.

For now, the video capture feature is only available for a handful of titles: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, ARMS and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Data Transfer Between Consoles

Saved data and user information on Switch consoles can now be easily transferred wirelessly.

This means that users are now able to move their profiles over to a new console if they purchase a new console.

Pre-load And Pre-order Games Now Possible

This update now makes it possible for gamers to pre-order and pre-load titles from the Nintendo eShop. The pre-loading feature means that upcoming titles are able to be downloaded from the online store, but is unable to be accessed until the day of release.

New User Icons

A small update, but now users can assign gamer icons to appear alongside their profile.
