Nintendo Switch update also adds wireless headset support

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0 Lets You Transfer Save Data

It's a personal request that doesn't really beat out more useful options, but it would be great if Nintendo updated the Switch's firmware at a greater frequency, aesthetically or not.

It's now not available in all Nintendo Switch games, just first party exclusives like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, ARMS, Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. There's now an option to begin the process in your Switch's system settings, though you'll need the console you are transferring your data to nearby as well.

While we don't get figures with the same degree of precision for 3DS and Super Nintendo Classic Mini, if you sum the three consoles together, they take up two-thirds of September total hardware sales in the US.

Elsewhere, the profile menu features a whole host of Super Mario Odyssey icons that are available for free.




While Nintendo has stayed shtum on whether video capture will eventually be a system wide feature, with Super Mario Odyssey just around the corner, we're going to hedge our bets and guess that the plumber's latest will also work with the new feature. On top of that, users can edit the footage and upload it to Twitter and Facebook - ideal for gloating on a global scale when you pip someone on the last lap of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! 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. It's also added the ability to save and share video clips from certain games, which could help raise the hype factor around high-profile releases.

The Nintendo Switch is available now.

Headphone volume can also be set to a higher level. Players have noticed that updated systems will now detect wireless headsets - as long as they're connected over USB. If you want high-quality video, a capture card is still your best bet.

Select System Update to start the process.
