Switch Update

Recommended Posts

Information:

Nintendo constantly aims to improve the functionality of its systems and services in order to provide the easiest, most user-friendly experience possible. As a part of these efforts, we are making Nintendo Switch system updates available for download via the Internet. 

Latest version: 5.0.0 (Distributed 03/12/2018)

Performing the System Update:

In most situations, the Nintendo Switch will automatically download the most recent system update while it is connected online. You can verify your current menu version and manually start the update from the System Settings menu if necessary. 

Important:

If you are unable to perform the system update, restart your console and try again.
