Nintendo Switch Update Now Lets You Capture Video And More


The update isn't now working for Mario Kart 8, but the Switch's news channel says the feature will be supported at the 1.3.0 version of the game although the current version is 1.2.1.

This update brings some highly-desired features to the Switch that users had been crying out for since launch, including video capture for select Switch titles, as well as the ability to transfer user profiles and save data to another system. Currently, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Splatoon 2 all support the new feature.

If a game is not compatible, you'll be greeted with a message in the top left-hand corner of the screen saying videos can not be captured for this software.

A new Switch update adds video capture and profile transfers to Nintendo's hybrid home-handheld console. And for those first-person shooter fans who are curious about how this new version of the game will perform, the developers have provided some more information. The video capture works like this, according to Gamespot: you hold the Capture button on your controller, and the system will record the previous 30 seconds of gameplay. That said, they have recently added a new system update that adds a slew of new features. There is also now a pre-purchase option available for certain games on Nintendo's eShop for the Switch. Now it's been confirmed that Super Mario Odyssey will also support the feature.

Also, you can pick from a bunch of new user icons from the System Settings menu, many of which are Super Mario Odyssey themed. The feature is now only compatible with "select games".

There is a big update for the Nintendo Switch that is rolling out now.

Next is an option to transfer your save data (something you couldn't previously do) which can only be done by moving a profile from one Switch to another.

There've been some changes made to the News Feed, which has received a bit of a spruce up, and now unsubscribing from a news channel removes it from your feed.

One of the coolest features is the ability to do software version matching with a local group of players.
