A system software update is available, would you like to update now? Nintendo put out a new firmware version for the Nintendo Switch today, adding a bit more than the typical stability we're used to. Version 10.0.0 brings some new features to the system, including the ability to remap your controllers and save custom layouts for Joy-Cons, Switch Pro Controllers, and the Switch Lite buttons. There's also a new section in the system settings that lets you toggle displaying your play data to others, or deleting it outright. Those that want to spice up their profile icons can do so, with six new Animal Crossing: New Horizons images that have been added. Another useful feature in 10.0.0 also allows users to transfer games from their system storage to a micro SD card, or the other way around. This works for game data, updates, and DLC, but it does not work for transferring save files to an SD.

Ver. 10.0.0 (Released April 13, 2020)
Added a bookmark feature to News.
This feature allows you to bookmark your favorite news items.

  • A maximum of 300 news items can be bookmarked.
  • An internet connection is required to view bookmarked News items.
  • News items that are no longer available cannot be viewed, even if they were bookmarked.


Added an option to transfer software data between the system memory and an SD card.

  • Users can now transfer downloadable software, update data, and DLC from the system memory to an SD card (and vice versa).
  • Note that save data and some update data cannot be transferred to an SD card.


Added an option to remap the controller buttons.

  • Analog stick and button configurations can now be changed for each paired controller.
  • Custom configurations can be saved as favorites in System Settings > Controllers and Sensors.
    • Custom configurations are stored on the Nintendo Switch system.
    • Configurations can be customized for the following controllers: Joy-Con (L), Joy-Con (R), Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Button configurations can also be customized on the Nintendo Switch Lite system.
    • This feature is not available for other controllers.
    • On each system, up to five favorite custom configurations can be saved for Joy-Con (L), five for Joy-Con (R), five for Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Five configurations can also be saved as favorites for Nintendo Switch Lite.


Added a new section in User Settings for Play Activity Settings.

  • The options for "Display play activity to:" and "Delete Play Activity" have been moved from Friends Settings to the new Play Activity Settings.


Added new selections to the lineup of user profile icons.

  • Select from 6 new icons from the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game for your user.


General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.

Won't let me update. This is smash bros joker update patch all over again. :blink:
Servers are slammed since everybody is home and they're all trying to update at the same time.

If this lets me remap the dpad of 8bitdo's SF30Pro to movement in Smash, I'm going to be so damn happy. Switch recognizes it as a Pro Controller, so it might be possible.

Not sure if it will go that far. Your movement will be pretty limited, because a Digital pad lacks precise angles the analog supposed to have, especially if the games do have them "pressure sensitive" motion and not just "fake digital" like some emulators, or fighting games do.:unsure:

Hopefully I won't have to wait too long to find out.

I am not sure if you are being sarcastic but It would be useful for people who play on the dock mostly and keep your top games on sd card for when you do go out with your switch and transfer games back and forth 1tb hdd $50 vs $300 for mirco sd card that is one TB not to mention up 8tb hdd could future proof the switch only supports up to 2tb mirco sd I know the argument you can delete stuff but internet is limited so redownloading can be a pain when having a option to keep it available at all times it just cost effective to have external hdd vs multiple mirco sd cards if possible why not have the option for thumb drives and external hdd.

That be stupid walking around with a HDD dangling off your switch

So never play it portable?

I don't play it portable, a lot of people don't, so what if I don't? Why limit users to expensive SD cards? 400 GB and 1 TB cards are expensive as hell. I'm sorry that I don't like portable gaming that much.
