Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Nintendo has just released a massive update to the Nintendo Switch hardware. The new update, version 5.0.0 adds a slew of new features and updates to the system’s parental controls.

First up, there was a revamp to the system’s News interface. Viewed news will now appear slightly grayed out and you can now filter your news based on channel by pressing Y. Second, you can now get friend suggestions using Facebook and Twitter options. You will need to attach your Facebook or Twitter account to your Switch to use this feature. Digital Switch software purchased on Nintendo’s website will begin to download sooner. This auto download will work even if the Switch is in standby mode. New features have been added to the system’s Parental Controls. It will allow you to make exceptions for startup restrictions and whitelist specific games you feel are appropriate. You’ll need to update the Parental Controls app on your smart device to use the new features.

You can download the newest system update from your console’s settings menu. It doesn’t matter if you play at home or on the go, you can download the System Update to your Nintendo Switch while it is in Tablet or TV mode.
