Infamous Nintendo Switch Firmware 5.0.0 Is Out

Adjust Comment Print

Firmware update version 5.0 is now available for Nintendo Switch.

Well it was of course confirmed to be a fake after the creator of the sham video revealed it as so, but now we have the real 5.0 update and it's a crushing disappointment. If you want more information about the changes, and how to implement them, the Nintendo support page for the update has you covered. 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. Digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will henceforth start downloading sooner than with the previous system. The default system will have users enter their PIN using the controller instead of the touchscreen in order to prevent others from figuring out the PIN.

New icons may also pop up on friend lists, as Nintendo added 24 new user icons from ARMS and Kirby. When a bedtime alarm is set, play will be restricted from the set time until 06:00 the following day.

If the speculations are right then Nintendo might be preparing to roll out Nintendo Switch firmware Update 5.0.0 in near future. Nintendo apparently codes the color of the grip electronically inside the controller.
