Just in time for the Switch’s third-anniversary, Nintendo has released a brand-new firmware update for the system. This firmware update bumps up the operating system version to 9.2.0.
As expected, some patch notes have been provided, but they fall in lin line with numerous other patches that we’ve gotten over the Switch’s current lifespan. Take a look…
Switch (Version 9.2.0) Patch Notes…March 2, 2020:
General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.
As you can see, the new update doesn’t seem to do anything major. Usually, seemingly generic updates like this are shadow security patches, though they also do sometimes make some odd tweaks here and there that typically go unnoticed. Regardless of how passable this update may seem, you’re gonna need it in order to access Nintendo’s online services like the eShop.
Despite there being nearly 10 iterations of the Switch’s OS, many heavily-requested features are still yet to be found. These include things like more themes for UI customization, game folders, and a real Internet browser, just to name a few.
