A new update has hit the Nintendo Switch dubbed update 2.3.0. Most times the Nintendo Switch will automatically download the most recent system update while it is connected online. You will also be able to manually download the update if it isn’t working.
In typical Nintendo style, all it says it did was a general stability update. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it is. It’s is the exact same wording as the previous two updates to come to the Nintendo Switch. We don’t really know what these updates are doing but they have to be changing something.
Nintendo has been on a roll with their cryptic updates in recent memory. One of the recent Breath of the Wild patches said it made a “more pleasant gaming experience” which ended up meaning they fixed the framerate on both the Switch and Wii U versions. Korok Village in particular ended up running much more smoothly on both consoles.
We have the update installed so we will let you know if anything noteworthy has changed. If you have found any changes, let us know in the comments.
In other recent update news, a new feature to hit the Nintendo Switch is the ability to save your credit card information. It was only a matter of time before this came but we’re glad it’s here. Your funds can be shared across the eShops on the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and Wii U if you link all your systems with a single Nintendo account.
Now we just need some news about an Internet Browser, Netflix and the Virtual Console and we’ll be all set.
We also are waiting for more information regarding the paid online mode coming this Fall. With it will come one free NES or SNES game to play, for a month, once the subscription service is launched.
