Everything new in Nintendo Switch system update 5.0.0

New Nintendo Switch 2

Nintendo Switch's latest firmware update 5.0 is now now live on the servers for download. Alongside the system OS update, a new update for the Joy-Con controllers has also been released.

As Nintendo outlines in its support page, the update adds Friend Suggestions, which makes friend suggestions based on social media accounts connected to the user's Nintendo Account. While previous updates have smoothed out some rough edges for transferring saves and assisting with voice chat, this one's highlight addition is the ability to suggest Nintendo Accounts based on your Twitter and Facebook friend lists (assuming you've linked them and are over 13 years old). Plus, Switch games purchased on a PC or phone will begin to download sooner than before, even if the Switch is in Sleep Mode.

Parental controls have also been made a bit more secure. The control stick now serves as the default input method instead of an onscreen keypad. Captured videos in the Album will be restricted by Parental Controls as well. And the Controllers menu will now show the grip colors of the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Finally, users will also receive a notification when a pre-purchased game is officially available.

Given the code name Mariko, now the intentions of the SoC Revision is yet to come to light and we doubt Nintendo will ever comment on it, so we will have to wait for further news or updates on the findings, perhaps at a future show?

Nintendo Switch owners have been anxiously awaiting significant software updates since the day the console arrived, such as the Nintendo Switch Online service and the unconfirmed Virtual Console.
