Major Nintendo Switch Update Brings Saved Data Transfers, Video Capture And New Character Profile Icons

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0 Lets You Transfer Save Data

Now, this doesn't necessarily resolve the chat issues with games, as you still need the adapter and what-not to talk with friends, but for those with headsets that they've been waiting to use with the system, this is certain to come as a relief. In the meantime, Switch owners can record their epic gaming moments in other titles, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Arms, and Splatoon 2.

Not all games support video capture yet.

Now, if you hold down that button for a bit longer, it captures the last 30 seconds of gameplay in an editable video. From there, players can trim the clips and share them on Facebook or Twitter. The update has introduced 4.0.0 version of its operating system. However, it is better than nothing. You can also select screenshots from the footage.

Nintendo has given its Switch game console a huge feature boost with the latest firmware update. This does not equate to a backup, but it does come in handy for anyone who has been playing on someone else's Switch console up until buying their own. One such reason is illustrated expertly by Nintendo in the image above: If multiple people have profiles on a single Switch console, and one of those people gets their own console, that person will probably want to move their data to the new console.

The Switch looks set to continue shifting hardware and software at this rate too, with a line-up featuring Fire Emblem Warriors, Super Mario Odyssey, DOOM, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 arriving between now and the end of November. Instead, if you have a wireless headphone that has a USB connector like the PlayStation Gold Headphones, you'll be able to plug in the USB receiver into the Switch dock while in TV mode and get wireless audio that way.

Also, you can pick from a bunch of new user icons from the System Settings menu, many of which are Super Mario Odyssey themed.
