Nintendo adds NSO hub to Nintendo Switch Firmware version 11

There hasn’t been a firmware update for a while, but it looks like Nintendo has been cooking up something big.

Version 11 of the firmware introduced today adds a new icon to the home screen for Nintendo Switch Online and contains a number of features.

This hub lets you see the latest Nintendo Switch Online information, there’s a trending section so you can see what you’re friends a playing and more. You can also see all your cloud saves.

You can now also transfer videos and screens to your smartphone. You can now also connect your Switch via USB to get screenshots off that way as well.

Been downloading a lot of things but want one thing faster? You can no prioritise download when having multiple downloads active.

New user icons have been added, all 12 of them celebrate Mario’s 35th anniversary.

You’ll now be able to name your button mappings with presets as well. So if you play a game a certain way with different button mappings you can switch between them easy.

Full Change Notes are below.
