  • Hands on with Nintendo Labo Making Cardboard FunĀ Again

Now the real firmware 5.0.0 is here and its a rather boring update with no major new features.

As indicated in the release notes for Nintendo Switch version 5.0.0, Facebook and Twitter friends of players who also use the hybrid console can now be added through Friend Suggestions. Gamers should find that games they purchase on a computer or mobile device through the eShop begin downloading more quickly on their Switch than before.

The update also adds 24 new user icons from Arms and Kirby, makes the system show any coloured grips on special pro controllers - meaning your Splatoon 2 Pro Controller will show on the system as having pink and green grips - and makes a series of other small quality of life improvements. Instead of the on-screen number pad, users will now enter their PIN using the Control Stick and buttons, by default.

South Africa claimed the bronze medal after a 29-7 thrashing of the US - who had opted to rest a whole host of stars. Three tries in the first seven minutes put New Zealand on the road to victory over the Blitzboks .

The app has a new whitelist feature that lets you choose to exclude games from the Parental Controls restrictions, the ability to lock the app, and changes to the bedtime alarm. When a bedtime alarm is set, play will be restricted from the set time until 06:00 the following day. The download will commence even when the console is in Sleep Mode.

If the speculations are right then Nintendo might be preparing to roll out Nintendo Switch firmware Update 5.0.0 in near future. You can verify your current menu version and manually start the update from the System Settings menu if necessary.
