Nintendo Switch System Update 10.0.0 adds controller remapping, improved file management, and more
The newest version of the Nintendo Switch’s firmware, version 10.0.0, is now available. The update brings quite a few new features, including some that have been requested by Nintendo gamers for years.
Update 10.0.0 adds the ability for users to remap their controller buttons. Both Joy-Cons and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller can be completely customized. This feature is available on both the standard Switch and the Switch Lite. Users can save up to five configuration profiles to their console’s internal memory. It looks like even the analog sticks can be remapped, though we have not had a chance to test or confirm this.
Additionally, users can now move games, updates, DLC, and other downloadable software from their Switch’s or Switch Lite’s internal storage to an SD card and vice versa. This feature will allow users to offload some of their games to make room for new titles without having to delete games from their library. Switch gamers have been asking for this feature since the Switch’s launch, so it’s nice to see it here. Keep in mind that save data and some update data can’t be pushed to an SD card.
Other new features include a bookmarking feature for the News app, moving options for Play Activity to their own settings menu, and the addition of six icons from Animal Crossing: New Horizons for user profiles.
