    It really is a lovely small game. Don't have a secondhand shop in the neighbourhood? We have Gamemania and they always let their stuff get tested by customers.

    If i bought the game card of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for my 2.1 switch would it work fine? Or does it need dlc or conect to the internet to load

    Xenoblade chronicles 2 - updated my 3.0 to 3.0.2
    Between this and Mario I couldn't hold out - good luck to the rest of you!

    Definitely over 3.0.0. I would guess 3.0.2.

    When you are not sure just try. When it says update then just do not update it. Updates are not automatically. Only when you choose to do so.

    I feel ya! These are all tests... I failed for them, but ey! I am also enjoying some quality games :D!

    I know, but how does a cartridge know that the system needs to be updated? Somewhere on the cartridge there must be something that has to be working with e-fuses *wild guess* or at least comparable as what the Switch uses when it updates.
    More info on the cartridges: click here

    That's a good idea, I could probably take it to the local used game shop to try

    I can confirm it's 3.0.1, as an earlier poster said it runs on his 3.0.1 and it does not run on my 3.0.0

    Thanks dude. Just bought explorer edition. Tried it on a switch that has never connected to wifi. Didn’t ask for update. My switch was 2.1 out of the box.

    A Wild guess, but i think that comes with the game updates, my 2.3.0 has already been connected to the internet and i can still play zelda, i never downloaded game updates.

    I believe downloading a game update will tell the game/console to search for a system update, my guess.

    Wonder if deleting everything and factory resetting the switch will allow people to play the game, if a factory reset really deletes everything it should be feasible.

    Your welcome :D! Have fun with this wonderful game.

    Yes and no. If you factory reset the Switch the save games and updates would be deleted... but I am not sure if you can just play everything then...

    why would i tell you stalkers where i live?
    you can reset the switch without deleting saves in maintenance mode

    No? You can delete game data... however Nintendo would be foolish if the update data check is not stored in the save game.

    I think Nintendo will at least use 3.0.1. from now on. This so the hack can not be exploited.

    Just bought a new copy of MK8D from FNAC in France and it came with 4.0.1.

    For the story, I bought the game to play with my siblings since I'm visiting them for Christmas & my switch was on airplane mode since the day I updated it to 3.0.0. I thought it was safe so I gave the cart to my sister and told her to prepare the game while I was talking with my mum... #RIP #NOHOMEBREW #SAD #NOWICANPLAYODISSEY

    Édit: it also was on 1.4.0 directly when I launched, but in between I connected the switch to internet so I'm not sure if the cartridge has the update built-in (it never told me that there was an update to download but I can't be sure it didn't do it behind my back)

    Edit2: it did tell me there was an update for botw so that would mean MK8D's cart version already had the update.
