    Get ready for stability, as it's time for a new Nintendo Switch system software update. This software version, puts the Switch at v9.0.0, and brings in some new additions that aren't just the average stability, such as a search feature for the news channel, ability to set alarms which will come with supported software later down the line, along with a Joy-Con firmware update, an "invite to online play" function, being able to turn off system button input for the Switch Lite, and being able to edit the touch screen's sensitivity. This system version also fixes a problem with crashing that Fire Emblem: Three House's expansion pass had. The full patch notes are below.

    "Online Play Invites"... They're getting there, but still miles behind.

    New updates are only ever fun if nintendo patches some secret vulnerability, and then a dependent exploit gets released into the wild

    So far this seems like a mundane patch adding switch lite stuff

    Nintendo, if I bought a switch it was only for the stability updates, not for updates that actually give us something new smh my head...

    If a Nintendo technician read this, he will not catch the sarcasm and would happily answer you: "Isn't that cool?

    I'd reply with "Yeah, it is making everyone gravitate towards your console, just like my JoyCon gravitate towards the left!"

    • Select between Standard and Stylus sensitivity (optimized for stylus input).
    There is a stylus for the switch? :wtf:

    I wonder if we can extrapolate the time it takes Nintendo to do updates by cross-referencing 3DS updates?

    We know updates usually happen (JP) Tuesday, but the frequency needs to be evaluated.

    I'm thinking around the Pokemon launch.

    Wish they'd add more features like the zoom in option

    what's odd is that I was not prompted to update when I came back from sleep mode. it was only after select system update in settings that it downloaded. I've never seen that happen before, so maybe it's an optional update?
