Imagine the following case:
Person A stays on 3.0.0 (for "reasons").
Person B wants to play some of the newest games and keeps updating his FW to 4.x

Both players are going to buy Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on cartridge.

I know that if person B updates the game he can't play with A any longer but if he launches the game without updating, would it work?

The game version should be the same on both Switch consoles, only the FW is different.

Has anyone ever tested that?

I'm pretty sure it works

I would not be able to verify that


I can't verify that... but I would watch it as these updates tent to install pretty easy.

EDIT: my 666 post :evil:
Oh okay. But I hope the same doesn't go for FW updates?
But it could be the case that person A which is on 3.0.0 can't receive the update from person B over WiFi as the newest Mario Kart 8 update might require a higher FW than 3.0.0, right?
I guess we would have to find out.

But this isn't answering my question:
that it shares updates with players that have it not installed
Because I only wanted to know if both players can play with each other if even person B with the high FW did not update the game.

Game updates require newer fw then 3.x most the time

That might be true but I'm talking about not updated games.
Person B on FW 4.1 can always decline any game updates. So both should be able to play a completely stock/vanilla MK8D with each other.

However. My friend on 4.1 already owns MK8D (and did not update).
As soon as I get that game too I'll report back here.
