New Switch update doesn't bring any big changes

Version 5.0.0 adds social media friends suggestions, new avatars and more.

Nintendo has released a new update (version 5.0.0) for Nintendo Switch. The update doesn't include the same big changes we saw with version 4.0.0, which if you cast your mind back added gameplay recording. Instead 5.0.0. brings with it some smaller, subtler additions.

Facebook and Twitter with a Nintendo Switch can be added through Friend Suggestions. More than 20 new avatars are available, from Arms and the Kirby games. Parental Controls now allow specific titles to be selected, and a Play Activity glitch was resolved. The update will be downloaded automatically if your Switch is connected to the Internet.
