Nintendo Switch system update 3.0.0 now available


Great news Nintendo Switch owners! Nintendo has pushed out a nice new system update which adds some new features and fixes a couple of issues.

The new features includes the ability to add friends from the 3DS and Wii U friends lists and to be notified when friends are online directly on the Switch. Users can also “find” their lost Joy-Cons, subscribe to game news, adjust some system volume levels and more.

The new update also fixes some weird issues that used to cause certain TVs to auto-switch to the Switch HDMI input when docked in sleep mode.  Oh, and there’s some of those generic system stability improvements that everyone loves too.

See the latest and greatest info for system update 3.0.0 on the official site and below.
