For you lucky Switch early owners, can you tell whether it requires a patch ? I'm getting my Switch at noon and my Internet (really) sucks at home. I'd be a little pissed if I had to download 2GB like the Wii U version.

When I set my Switch up I skipped the internet setup. Once I was on the Home Menu I put Zelda in and it booted up just fine. So no, you don't need to update it.

Well the Switch update was almost instant, and Zelda was 220MB which is fine.

Now to put the wife and child to sleep... Hyrule here I come !!!

Pretty sure the console had to be on 2.0.0 before being able to download BotW 1.1.0 since it enables the eShop. I did not try tho

Nah, I don't think so. It will play BotW right away on 1.0.0. and I do not care about eShop unless DLC for BotW. :)

They mean you can't download the Zelda update (220MB) until you first update the Switch because the update comes through via the eShop. You can play the unpatched Zelda on v1.0.0 though, which is likely what you did.

i played Zelda before any system or game update fine. Then closed the game and updated both. System to 2.0.0 took about 2-3 mins. Zelda which was a little over 200Mb was kinda instant.

What i've noticed I'm really liking about the Switch is how snappy everything is.

Like quitting a game to getting back into the action is amazingly fast compared to WiiU.
