Nintendo Switch 2.1.0 Firmware Goes Live Offering Stability Fixes

What's in Nintendo Switch's latest update? Not much, according to the Kyoto-based publisher.

It’s been just under a month since Nintendo released a firmware update on their brand-new home console, the Nintendo Switch. The first update from 1.0.0 to 2.0.0 happened just before launch, bringing a host of network features including the ability to access the internet, applets to get you connected, online play, friends, and more.

The latest update — 2.1.0 — is far less hardy than the last one. According to Nintendo’s support page, all it does is include “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.” That said, who doesn’t want a more stable Nintendo Switch.

In order to initiate the update, do the following:

  1. Navigate to “System Settings”
  2. Select “System”
  3. Select “System Update”
  4. Download and wait the few minutes for the download/install process to finish

Nintendo Switch is a console with a lot of potential, but with a few underbaked features. DualShockers reviewed the Nintendo Switch, awarding it a 6.5 out of 10 saying “Nintendo Switch feels like a return to form in ways we haven’t seen from the Kyoto-based company in over a decade.”

Nintendo Switch launched worldwide on March 3, 2017.
