Nintendo Switch System Update 10.1.0 Released July 14, 2020

I came into today knowing I would spend most of the day updating software on my Xbox One, but apparently Nintendo also had the same idea to use today to update their software. The Nintendo Switch has quietly started offering a brand new system software. The new update offers non-descript system improvements and important firmware updates for Joy-Con controllers! Speculation currently exists online that this update may be for the controllers more than the system itself.

As far as I can tell, it is not currently required to install updates or play your games online, but my guess is it is only a matter of time before it is. Make sure to update your controllers after installing this update.

We’ll be playing Pokémon Go Fest 2020 from the comforts of our homes this year, but that doesn’t mean Niantic can’t help us provide ourselves a great home play experience. Fire up your printers and load in your decent card stock because Niantic has just brought this website, full of all sorts of cool activities, online.

The official Pokémon Go Fest 2020 site includes coloring books, decoration ideas, and papercraft items that can be downloaded and printed by whoever wants them. You do not need to have a Go Fest 2020 Ticket to download any of the content, just a working printer. Go ahead and have fun!
