What does 4.0.0 feature and how to install it?

Chris Grant  Polygon

That's right, Nintendo released a new update for the console, which brings over several neat features, including video captures and support for transferring saved games and profiles to a different console. Whether it be for a game or a console itself, Nintendo does a pretty poor job of detailing exactly what's changing beyond "improving the overall experience".

Well, Nintendo understands how unsafe it is to potentially break your Switch during an explosive bit of diarrhea, and how important it is to be able to transfer your games in case you break your console while you're battling to get the chocolate subway through a tunnel it just doesn't want to fit through.

The pre-purchase option will only be available for certain games, allowing a customer to pre-load the game onto the system so that they can play it the minute it officially launches. That gives Nintendo the opportunity to possibly be the first! Here's a breakdown of the big update!

You can now locally transfer your save games and user data to another Nintendo Switch console in the same location.

Russian Federation to Issue First State-Backed Cryptocurrency 'CryptoRuble'
The ability to freely exchange the currency for hard tender suggests an official exchange is likely, alongside unofficial markets. If there is a rise in value, the same 13 percent rate will be applied upon sale of the coin only on the difference in value.

Arguably the most notable addition is one that comes oh-so-close to fixing a major Switch problem: the inability to back up any save game data. Now this only supports Zelda: BotW, Arms, Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. That feature is coming for future games. It can be launched by pressing and holding the dedicated screen capture button of the hybrid console, and once recording is finished, the video will be saved to the Nintendo Switch album. You can then trim the clip and share it on social media, whether that be Twitter or Facebook.

This system update also adds some new player icons from Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild, updates the console's News app, and introduces the ability to update multiple Switch consoles' games to their latest versions by grouping up with other Switch owners. Including the Mario-captured T-Rex.

If you want to check what version your console is running, head to the System section of settings and you'll see Current Version under System Update.
