  • Nintendo Targeting More Adult Games for Switch

An update for Nintendo Switch this week adds video capture capabilities and save data transfer, but Nintendo quietly included another feature to the system in version 4.0.0.

To transfer user and save data, you'll need to have two Switch consoles on hand. One new feature that wasn't mentioned is that the Switch now supports wireless headsets-sort of. You can change that icon through the profile option on the Switch. You could take screenshots to share online, but recording videos would require something more complex, like a capture card between the console and a screen.

Nintendo Switch update: What's new? The functionality was discovered by eagled eyed Redditors over on the Nintendo Switch subreddit.

The most important feature enables you to transfer your saved data from one Switch to another, so if you're one of those people who fall into the category of the description in the very first paragraph... well, Nintendo has your back, fam. On top of that, users can edit the footage and upload it to Twitter and Facebook - ideal for gloating on a global scale when you pip someone on the last lap of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!

Upcoming games for the system include Fire Emblem Warriors (October 20), Super Mario Odyssey (October 27), DOOM (November 10), The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (November 17) and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (December 1).




There is a Nintendo-sized caveat though, and it's that the feature now only works with Nintendo-published games, and not even all of them.

The bad news, however, is that this video-capture feature is now only supported by four games, and they're all first-party fare: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, Splatoon 2, and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Other consoles (and, of course, PCs) can stream games in their entirety. "Probably the biggest four exclusives on the console, at least until "#Super Mario Odyssey" is released, with three of them heavily focusing on multiplayer.

You can also transfer users and save data from one console to another, which is a welcome addition.
