Download the System Update 6.0 for Nintendo Switch
Nintendo has released the latest system update for the Nintendo Switch in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday. The update is now available as a download. You can start the download by opening the Nintendo eShop for example, after which you get the message that you have to update first. You can also force the update manually within the settings of the hybrid game console. After system update 6.0 is installed, all your Joy-Con controllers will also need to be updated. You will also be automatically notified of this.
After the update, your Nintendo account is officially linked to your game console. This can no longer be reversed. Your game console has now also been made suitable for Nintendo Switch Online, the new online service from Nintendo where you can read all about it. Furthermore, the NES app is now in the eShop, with which you can play a selection of Nintendo Entertainment System games after you have taken out the subscription.
