Infamous Nintendo Switch Firmware 5.0.0 Is Out

Many Switch owners have been long awaiting Firmware 5.0.0, imagining this next big update might bring yet untold software functionality to the system.

Well it was of course confirmed to be a fake after the creator of the sham video revealed it as so, but now we have the real 5.0 update and it's a crushing disappointment.

Apart from that it's a reasonably quiet week by recent standards.We'll update this page with news of any additional games - plus full European Union pricing - as soon as we get confirmation. Facebook and Twitter friends that also use Nintendo Switch can now be added through Friend Suggestions and digital software purchases made from a PC or smart device will start downloading sooner than previously, even if the Nintendo Switch console is in Sleep Mode. When prompted to enter your Parental Controls PIN, press and hold the + Button to change between input methods.

The app has a new whitelist feature that lets you choose to exclude games from the Parental Controls restrictions, the ability to lock the app, and changes to the bedtime alarm.

The Controllers menu has also been updated to display the grip colors of your Pro Controller.

In order to use some of these features, you will need to update the Nintendo Switch system version to 5.0.0 or later.

Once the download is complete, you'll be asked if you'd like to install the update.
