If you have played the NES – Nintendo Switch Online whilst connected to the internet, you may have experience some lag and low latency issues. Well it turns out that there is a setting that you can use to reduce input delay when playing online. The catch is that this Low-Latency Mode may possibly affect audio and visual effects.
Nintendo America have updated their support website with instructions to activate/deactivate Low-Latency mode.
- Start an online game from the NES – Nintendo Switch Online library.
- Open the Suspend Menu by pressing ZL + ZR*, then select “To Game Selection.”
- From the menu on the left select, “Settings,” then press the Y Button to turn on low-latency mode.
- This option is visible only after starting a game online.
- This setting will not be saved and will be turned off once you close your online game.
- To manually turn off this setting, press the Y Button again.
* The button layout may vary if the Joy-Con are being used horizontally as individual controllers in Tabletop or TV mode.
- When low-latency mode is enabled, input delay will be reduced when playing games online.
- This setting may affect audio and visuals.
- This setting is visible only after starting an online game.
