...and of course, stability. But no folders.

A new version of the Switch's system software has added a couple of highly demanded features.

Version 10.0 can now be downloaded to the Switch and Switch Lite. Among the new features:

  • The ability to copy games/DLC/updates to the system memory or SD card depending on what is necessary. In a test, a 12.5GB file took approximately 7 minutes to move from a high-speed SD card to the Switch (rev 2)'s memory.
  • System level button remapping for official Nintendo controllers (the Joy-Cons and the Pro Controller). This includes analog stick and button configurations, as well as the buttons on the Lite.
  • The Display Play Activity setting has been moved to a new menu called "Play Activity Settings". Currently, the options allow for limiting the display of public play data, or deleting all history.
  • Inidividual news items can now be bookmarked.
  • New icons (Animal Crossing; New Horizons themed).
  • "General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience."

I'm happy that copying niche accessibility features from the PS Vita has taken priority over giving us Folders.

All I really want is the show all games to be first and then the most recently played games.

OMG, that would be amazing!!!
then I can put all the physical games away. They could set those unique ID's to be registered to a specific Switch or family of Switches tied to a specific registered user account... maybe Nintendo Online is required, which would be an added perk.


Quick question on that thought.... If I had 2 Switches, and bought a digital copy of a game... could I download that same digital copy on to both switches and play with/against each other online?

Button remapping is such an obvious idea I really wonder why videogame systems haven't had that as a standard feature for the last 20 years.  The first time I loaded up MAME and was mapping the buttons to a controller I thought "why can't they do this with every system?"

The only reason I can see not to offer it is assuming the worst in your customers where if the game says "press A" and they forgot they remapped A to B they'll get confused.  This isn't like medical software where lives hang in the balance if a mistake is made.  If a stupid person can't play a videogame because they're stupid it affects no one but the stupid person.  Hell, you could always hide the feature so that only users that know what they're doing can find it.

I tried to trade with "myself" using Pokemon Sword (and this was local) and it didn't work. Plus, whichever system is the primary would kick the other one offline when it signed in.
