Nintendo Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch’s firmware has been updated to version 10.0.1

Nintendo has released a brand new update for the Nintendo Switch‘s firmware,. This brings the firmware to version 10.0.1. The last update, which was released last week, was a big one, so this one only does some polishing and fixing of issues. In fact, all Nintendo says in the update’s official patch notes is that there were “general system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience”.

    1. 10.0.0 added button remapping and moving games from the Switch’s memory to an SD without having to delete it and redownloading.

      1. When you think about it its actually pretty big compared to all the stability updates we been getting, plus the button mapping is a really good feature to use espcially for nes and snes

  1. For those of you who are unaware, there’s a rumor that the stick drift issue might be software-related.
    This came from a Reddit user who claimed that his Switch Pro controller was doing just fine, until FW 10.0.0 came to be. So to prove this could be related, he connected his Pro controller to a PC and proceeded to test it using HTML5 Gamepad Tester. According to him, when his Pro controller was connected (wired) to the Switch, the left stick was always sitting southwest, away from the rest position – But when connected to a PC and using the HTML5 Gamepad Tester, it was behaving properly. That, along with other users reporting the same thing happening to them after updating to fw 10.0.0 (and that was a significant number, mind you) might have caught the attention of Nintendo. But I think it’s too soon to say 10.0.1 is a stick-drift solver. Only time will tell.

  2. As a software engineer, this sounds like a high priority bug was fixed, otherwise I can’t see what would justify such a quick release of this after 10.0.0. The overhead of a release process simply wouldn’t seem justifiable to management.
