    So it switches back on when docked?
    Such a waste if the player prefers being glued to the television screen.

    If i try to add friends from 3DS/Wii U, i always get 2162-0002 blackscreen error. Is this a issue from my console or from the update itself?

    Makes sense. Airplane mode is basically a mode that you need when you are in an aeroplane

    I'm so scared :blink: What if Kirby's cartridge comes with the 5.0 update?
    At first I was going to get it digital, but since this stupid, useless update came before, forcing me to block it via dns... I have no other option but to get it in physical.

    But what if, in order to be able to play it, it's necessary to be on fw 5.0? :unsure: A la Pokkén with the 3.0 update.

    True.
    Although given how people is confirming they're still able to play online despite remaining on 4.1 I'd suggest just blocking the update will suffice for now.
    Edit: lol nvm post below confirms it is no longer possible :ha:

    Nooooooo.....I cant play splatton anymore!!!!!

    Guess it’s time for finally hone my skills to complete Zelda on master mode.
    And I will probably complete Mario vs Rabbit. Have like one box I cannot find. Might also continue Desigea 5 also. Try to max out my stats.

    I hope that Kirby is not a 5.0 game also. If it is, I’ll update!

    Oh, definitely. I was guessing it'll be launched along with the online service, just to entice people to get both.

    Hopefully emuNAND and hacks for 4.1.0 are out by then, although I don't think so. But this means Nintendo will win considering how popular Smash is.

    GG WP Nintendo. You got us.

    Hopefully cfw is publicly released before Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion comes out

    I'd hate not to be able to play it after I pre-ordered it.

    That's why you update. We all know people will be mass-updating after Smash Bros is released, so why not get ahead of the game before we fucking crash Nintendo's update servers with all the Switches mass-updating?

    I can confirm, after the "server maintenance" at 5:50pm Pacific Time, you are now required to update to 5.0 to play splatoon online

    The only online game I have is Xenoverse 2 but I can say that I can still go online as of writing. I haven't received the update nag as I'm usually in airplane mode and when I'm not, I'm in a multilobby in the game. I'm guessing that the update won't download while in the multilobby so I go back into airplane mode before quitting the game.

    Guys, 5.0.0 is almost guaranteed to not be on Kirby cartridges at least for now.
    A: I believe review copies are the same things we get, just sent sooner. Therefore, someone who got one would have to have seen that update.
    B: The cartridges were probably manufactured at least a couple weeks ago so there would be time to ship them. The 5.0.0 update would have had to already been finalized when the cartridges were manufactured in order for them to contain the update.
