Cartridge revisions and firmware requirements thread

=================================
last updated with nswdb.com on 27.6.2018
192
game entries - 192 firmware entries
=================================​

Backstory
As @B4rtj4h and I found out, cartridges get upgraded in a fast manner.
We found out about this after mutliple Zelda BotW owners had problems playing it on version 3.0.0 even without having their Switch connected to the internet once.

The Thread
This threads main reason is to gather information on cart update timing and open up the mistery about the codes they have.
Here you can find out what FW your Switch has to be on in order to play the specific revisions of the games you own.
If possible I would like to collect as much information about the cartridges in the wild as possible to help any one searching for playable carts.

If you are looking for what FW versions the online updates require you should take a look at :discuss: Games required Firmware version by B4rtj4h :discuss:

Basic Info
:glare: There is NO difference in packaging for different revisions of cartridges :glare:
:!: DO NOT USE THIS THREAD AS ADVICE FOR UPDATING! :!:
While the available information is quite reliable, the data is NOT save as it is supplied by users, not Nintendo itself or other hard evidence sources.

Release data from BigBlueBox is available at nswdb.com and might contain new releases not featured in this list yet.​

This is what we currently know
The cartridge code over the connectors looks like this (Zelda BotW 1.3.1)
AAAAA22A001

So we can derive this structure
AAAAABBCDDD

AAAAA - Is the game code
BB - unknown, maybe supported languages, see COUNTRY CODE and following spoiler or the production line
C - unknown, could be region specification (if it were to be region locked or something) or production line
DDD - cartridge revision, with this you can see what fw it requires (this is what this list is about)
Gal*Gun 2 has those codes
AGBNA (JAP) and
AGBNB (EN)

This leads to this splitting
AAAAB

AAAA = GameID (doesn't seem to include the publisher or anything)
B = LanguageID (A is the first version released, B is second and so on) (highest yet seen is E)
  • AUS
  • EUR
  • JAP
  • USA

I'm pretty sure C doesn't mean region lock, it could mean a certain regions copy, like if some Japanese copy was a different letter compared to an American copy.

From Greg's post alone it looks like it is the same as the fist letter... but that says nothing as its only from 2 games

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Ver. 1.07.00 (not-updated):
ABYBA20A000

This is an AUS copy but I live and brought this game in the US...

Also my BotW cart is a GER copy…

Unless the 20 and 22 means something entirely different.

I will add it later once I'm on my PC.
To get an AUS copy in the US is kinda strange. Getting a GER one even more. But it is possible that they just shipped them wrong (and you got a rare one) or they had high demand and said "f*ck it" just do it.
I just read that Nintendo did label their games ever since NES. The current codes would fit this system. Let's see once we have a bigger data collection :)

Edit
What else is on the cartridge/package?

I added games from a page holding release information. We still need to validate the FW as it was not stated on that page.

Can you tell me wich FW version the game needed (or the one you are playing on now) and what the version of the game is without any updates?

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------


Does it say AAACA41X000? That would mean that 41 is for USA, too.

Not 100% sure what it needed, as I always keep mine up to date with the latest FW.

Yes, AAACA41X000 is correct.

It's still too early, but maybe B does state the supported languages instead of a distribution country.
The linked post for code 41 - EAP is from a person from Portugal. g00s3y's Package has English text and states FR and ES as languages. This would fit this case if im not mistaken and Portugal -> espanol.

22 -> EN, DE, FR, NL, RU, ES, IT, JA
41 -> EN, FR, ES

and so on... we will see...

There is so much misinformation in that post!

Regarding the product codes printed on the rear of the box:
"TRA-HAC" is for Nintendo-published software. On launch, a splash screen is shown which contains the Nintendo logo in the top-left corner, and the Switch logo in the bottom-right corner.
"TSA-HAC" is for third-party software. When launched, a splash screen is shown with the text "Licensed by" added above the Nintendo logo in the top-left corner. The Switch logo remains unchanged.
All end with country codes.
Some games contain a single-digit number after the country code, which likely signifies a game revision.

Cartridge ID (front):
Always begins with "LA-H" and the 5-character game code, but the "AUS" country code is unused in third-party games. All third-party games distributed in Australia use the European-released cartridge which has the "EUR" country code.
Just like in Germany, where the first-party Nintendo-produced games end with "GER", but third-party games end with "EUR".


Cartridge serial codes (rear):
The 2-digit value after the 5-character game code is currently unknown, but is NOT the country code as incorrectly stated in the post.
Also, there are many more codes than the four shown, but they do not have any relation to the region or language.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For example:

  • LEGO CITY UNDERCOVER (Australian) - ID: LA-H-ABM2B-EUR

- Serial: ABM2B08A000

  • Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Australian) - ID: LA-H-BAANA-EUR

- Serial: BAANA13B000

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Australian) - ID: LA-H-AABPA-AUS

- Serial: AABPA22A000

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There's a lot more that is unknown, but I won't go over that.

It's nice of you to put all that together. Regarding the country code, that is what we were suspecting and stating in my last post.
It's still not easy to conclude something from the sparse information we have right now.

B still is a mystery. It's safe to say that it is not to identify the producer / owner of the game bc Zelda BotW and Skyrim as an example share the same number.
Plushie provided info on more games in another thread. I added it to the list above.
Lego city undercover: ABM2B41A000 (game has both dutch and french text on boxart and subtitles/voices)
