The Latest Nintendo Switch Update Includes Button Remapping

Written by on | OpenCritic

The latest Nintendo Switch update has dropped, and it lets players have more control over their Joy-Cons, as well as transfer software data over to an SD card. 

The Nintendo Switch's update Ver. 10.0.0 has released. One of the main features of the update is the ability to remap the buttons on player's controllers. Analog stick and button configurations can be customized on the Joy-Cons and the Switch Pro Controller. The buttons on the Switch Lite can also be remapped. This feature will not be available for any other controllers. Custom configurations can be saved as favorites in the System Settings. These configurations are stored on the system itself. Up to five favorite configurations can be saved on the Switch and Switch Lite. 

The new Switch update will also allow players to transfer software data between the system's memory and an SD card. Downloadable software, update data, and DLC from a Switch can be sent over to an SD card, and vice versa. It is important to note that some data cannot be sent over to an SD card. 

The update comes with a few other features. This includes the ability to bookmark news items. Up to 300 news items can be bookmarked, though news items that are no longer available cannot be viewed, even if they were bookmarked. The options for "Display play activity to:" and "Delete Play Activity" have been moved over to the new Play Activity Settings. Finally, six new profile icons have been added. These icons come from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and include Tom Nook, Timmy and Tommy Nook, Isabelle, Wilbur, C.J., and Flick. General system stability improvements were also made to enhance gamers' experience, though Nintendo did not specify what those stability improvements are.
