Nintendo Switch System Update 10.0.0 Brings New Features

Nintendo Switch

Last night, Nintendo released System Update 10.0.0 to the Nintendo Switch. This new update brings with it some notable new features, specifically the ability to move downloadable software and update data from the system memory to the SD Card and vice versa. This is something that I’ve always wondered why it wasn’t there already.

Other notable changes include the ability to remap controller buttons, bookmark News items, and new Animal Crossing user profile icons.

Full list of updated shows below.
