Nintendo Switch System Update 8.0.0

A firmware update for the Nintendo Switch has arrived and has brought in some big changes.

The biggest changes coming is the ability to transfer save data between Switch consoles and a sorting feature for your game titles on the switch!


Let's break down this update:

1. A Sort Software feature is available after selecting to view All Software from the HOME Menu

Software can be sorted by time last played, total play time, software title, and software publisher

The All Software option displays when there are 13 or more software icons on the HOME Menu


2. A View All Available News option is available within News, allowing you to view all news items currently being distributed
