The Nintendo Switch receives another update

It’s common for any software or firmware to receive updates every once in a while. The Nintendo Switch received an update some time ago. Yet, here is another one making it version 10.0.1. Players don’t need to get their hopes up though. This update is a minor one, at best.

A lot of changes got introduced in the 10.0.0 update. It included a much easier data transfer, and a button remap option. Since it is a minor update, the changes are not that noticeable.

Still, this is a good gesture from Nintendo. They aim to please their player base, so they always add features. It doesn’t matter how small their addition is as long as the players like it. As for this update, the Switch received further system improvements. The update promises a more stable playing experience and enhanced gameplay.

Recent and present updates

Well, an update is still an update. It’s designed to provide a smoother gaming experience. So even if it’s small, it still has its advantages.

More exciting features are in store for the console. One of its games, Animal Crossing: New Horizons will add a feature that players requested for a long time. The game will feature an art gallery for those players who want to check on their in-game pictures. The upcoming update will add more garden enhancements and six extra icons as well.

Another game, Super Mario Maker 2, also received an update. This time, players can create their very own Mario Campaign. Time for those creative juices to flow!
