Nintendo Switch system update 4.0 adds video capture

Posted October 20, 2017

These updates won't address numerous complaints about the Switch-like its lack of cloud saves, third-party apps, or Virtual Console-but they do signal Nintendo's commitment to expanding the console's functionality and listening to its customers' feedback. You can only save 30 seconds of video, which can then be saved and shared to Facebook or Twitter.

A tweet from the game's official account confirms that you'll be able to save the past 30 seconds of your journey via the Capture Button.

Video screen capture for certain games is the latest addition.

Such is the digital age that we live in that most devices need regular software updates.

One of the biggest complaints about the Nintendo Switch during launch was that you couldn't transfer your saved data. Once data is transferred, it's a permanent trip.

While video capture is an awesome feature, it's the forwarding of user profiles and stored data that gives this update a major overhaul. Please note the data is removed from the original system.

As for Trump's tweets themselves, Tillerson said the President made the statements he did to try to "motivate action". I don't work that way and I don't feel that way", he said.

On top of taking the lion's share of hardware sales, Nintendo Switch games ranked well in the software charts throughout September too.

Nintendo games have also topped the charts, with four of its titles within the top 11.

Add friends from your Nintendo 3DS and Wii U Friend Lists to your Nintendo Switch console's Friend List. Some have even said that USB-C connectors will work with an undocked Switch, so it really seems like Bluetooth functionality is the only thing absent with this update (and with that said, we probably shouldn't expect it any time soon).

If you want to check what version your console is running, head to the System section of settings and you'll see Current Version under System Update.

Select System Update to start the process.
