Nintendo’s Switch introduces new system updates to ease gameplay experience

The latest software update for Nintendo’s Switch consoles has arrived, and version 10.0.0 is finally ready to fix an issue that has plagued the system since it debuted: moving games between internal storage and an SD card. Until now, if a game was in either place and you wanted it in the other, then the only solution was to redownload it. Now Switch owners can move “downloadable software, update data, and DLC” with ease — game saves and some update data is still excluded. With the new system update, you will able to remap controller buttons on Joy-Cons, Switch Pro Controller, and Switch Lite. Each paired controller can save up to five different button configurations based on your preferences. Along with these, it has now become easier to transfer downloadable update data, software data, and DLC from system memory to SD card and vice versa. This is a handy feature in case you were looking to free up some space. Here are the features in details: Added a bookmark feature to News.
