Nintendo has just rolled out yet another system update for the Switch. This update is a full version upgrade, bumping up the firmware to version 7.0.0. Despite the number increase, the patch notes don’t contain any groundbreaking new features.
Improvements Included in Version 7.0.0 (Distributed 01/28/2019)
- Select from six new New Super Mario Bros.™ U Deluxe icons for your user
- To edit your user icon, head to your My Page > Profile on the top left of the HOME menu
- Added additional language support to the HOME Menu for Chinese, Korean, and Taiwanese
- To change the language, head to the System Settings > System > Language
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience
That last one about “general system stability improvements” has already ruffled the feathers of the Switch hacking community, as now engineers must scramble to try and counteract Nintendo’s new security codes. This game of cat and mouse has been running since 2017, and it looks like the Big N is adamant about carrying it on as long as possible.
