Well if the Nintendo Switch wasn’t good before, it is now as its biggest update to date has arrived and as well as allowing you to be able to actually film some content of select games, but it is also now possible to transfer user and save data to another console, as well as a whole lot of other new and interesting things, which you can read up on right here:

 

 

Improvements Included in Version 4.0.0:

  • Capture video on select games.
    • To capture video, hold down the Capture Button during gameplay.
    • Up to a maximum of the previous 30 seconds will be saved in the Album. You can trim the beginning and end of each clip, and post to Facebook and Twitter.

    • To edit your user icon, head to your My Page on the top left of the Home Menu > Profile.
  • Transfer user and save data to another system.
  • Pre-purchase option on Nintendo eShop.
    • A pre-purchase option will be available for certain games. This option allows pre-load of the game to your system for quicker play when the game is released.
    • This feature will be supported by future game releases.
  • News channel updates,
  • The news feed has been updated with a new look.
  • Unfollowing a channel will remove that channel’s content from the news feed and following the channel again will make it reappear.

    • To create a group, head to the software’s Options > Software Update > Match Version with Local Users.
    • Everyone’s software will be updated to match the most recent version in the group.
    • All users must be on system menu version 4.0.0 or later to view and join a group

 

General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience, including:

  • Changed the specification which hid wireless networks using TKIP security from the network search results. Wireless networks using TKIP security will now display in search results as a grayed-out selection instead of not being displayed
    • The Nintendo Switch console supports WEP, WPA-PSK(AES), and WPA2-PSK(AES). If your router is using a different security type (e.g. WPA-PSK(TKIP)), you will need to change this security type within your router’s settings.

 

 

As well as the new update, Nintendo has gone live with a new trailer that focuses on video capture, which we’re going to share beneath this paragraph, along with a video by GameXplain that offers a tour of the new update:
