Nintendo Switch 5.0 Firmware Released, Here's What It Changes


After a leak revealing the next update for the Nintendo Switch is coming, version 5.0 is finally available to download on the hybrid console. While nothing is now known about the next firmware update, it seems likely that it'll be coming sooner rather than later. The update has also updated the suggested friend functionality to include the player's Facebook and Twitter friends who have also linked a Switch to their social media profiles. Instead of the on-screen number pad, users will now enter their PIN using the Control Stick and buttons, by default. Digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will henceforth start downloading sooner than with the previous system. Adult users can also whitelist certain games to be allowed regardless of their Switch's rating settings, and captured videos will now be only viewable if the game's rating falls within the Switch's parental control restrictions.

Another improvement that Nintendo included in version 5.0.0 has to do with downloaded games.

EF Games will bring you more information on GameMaker Studio 2 Nintendo Switch edition and the games it powers as it is released. Your console will restart to complete the update.
