Nintendo Switch Adds Friendly Firmware Update

Nintendo Switch System Software Update Version 5.0.0 To Be Potentially Released Soon Nintendo Switch Adds Friendly Firmware Update

Remember a short while ago when there was an apparent leak going around showing off what was supposed to be the Nintendo Switch OS update 5.0? The update has also updated the suggested friend functionality to include the player's Facebook and Twitter friends who have also linked a Switch to their social media profiles. The default system will have users enter their PIN using the controller instead of the touchscreen in order to prevent others from figuring out the PIN.

A modest sized update: Tweaks parental controls, makes adding friends easier, and gifts players with new user icons. Gamers should find that games they purchase on a computer or mobile device through the eShop begin downloading more quickly on their Switch than before.

The free app lets parents easily monitor how much their child plays on Nintendo Switch, choose how long they can play for each day, and set restrictions to limit what they can access.

You can verify your current menu version and manually start the update from the System Settings menu if necessary.
