Nintendo nabs two-thirds of monthly game hardware sales thanks to Switch

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0 Lets You Transfer Save Data

Switch Update Adds Video Capture

The new software update for the Nintendo Switch brings along a much sought after feature - video capture.

Nintendo has released the new 4.0.0 system update for the Nintendo Switch that allows players to capture gameplay footage and share it online.

This new functionality allows the Switch (in TV mode) to accept signals from wireless USB headsets when their adapters are plugged into a USB port on the dock Dock. Sending a broken Switch in to Nintendo is like rolling the dice with the countless hours you've put in to a game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Where are the more helpful curation features like "games on sale", which was only just recently added? That gives Nintendo the opportunity to possibly be the first!

To capture video you need to hold down the capture button - a quick press still takes a screengrab. The target console should also have not more than seven registered users, and should also have sufficient memory for the incoming save data.

Your Switch should automatically install this system update.

The caveat as it stands is that the feature is only available for four games: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2.

There are loads of reasons why you might want to transfer saved data from one Nintendo Switch console to another.

Nintendo today announced that their hardware sales account for two-thirds of Septembers video game hardware sales. 3DS games coming soon include, again, Fire Emblem Warriors (October 20), Mario Party: The Top 100 (November 10) and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon (November 17).

The latest Nintendo Switch firmware update makes the game console more powerful than ever.

With the release of Super Mario Odyssey just a few weeks away, video capture is a particularly exciting addition. The option is inside system settings under users.
