Nintendo Switch Adds Friendly Firmware Update

Undertale is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year

While that's great for discerning parents out there, what is of much greater intrigue is that the patch notes state that some features require Switch system update 5.0.0 or later, suggesting that said update is coming rather soon.

The update will now allow users to add friends through social media, which means anyone with Facebook or Twitter accounts can add friends from those platforms.

As indicated in the release notes for Nintendo Switch version 5.0.0, Facebook and Twitter friends of players who also use the hybrid console can now be added through Friend Suggestions.

Other changes to Parental Controls have been implemented as well. Digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will henceforth start downloading sooner than with the previous system. Captured videos in your Album are now restricted based on your Restricted Software settings and Software Rating Organization, and the ability to add certain games to your "whitelist" so your Restricted Software settings don't apply has also been added.

If your Nintendo Switch is connected to the internet, your console will download the update automatically.

Unlike past versions, it has introduced some pretty MASSIVE updates to the console and is the latest update to the console since May. Once the download is complete though, they need to manually install the update.

Settings made using this app will now be synced to the Nintendo Switch console even when it is in sleep mode. Be sure to save any game progress before you continue.
