You may recall that, yesterday, Nintendo released an update for the Switch firmware. Although the update brought the console’s firmware to version 12.0.0, the official patch notes had been unusually small for such a change to the version number.
Well, now we know why, because it had been snuck into the update’s code. It has been discovered by data-miners that the update has added the ability for the Switch dock’s firmware to be updated. People have been giving multiple theories on why Nintendo did this, and especially in complete silence. If there’s any further developments on this, we’ll let you know.
