Version 7.0.0 for your Nintendo Switch has now been made live. While the update didn't add many new features to the Switch, Nintendo has instead added support in the 'home' menu for more languages such as "Chinese (simplified), Chinese (Tradional) and Korean". Nintendo also give a step-by-step tutorial on how to change languages; "To change the language, head to the System Settings > System > Language".

Languages additions weren't the only thing Nintendo brought within their 7.0.0 update, six new Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe icons have also been added. After the update has been downloaded and installed, Nintendo Switch users can edit their user icon by following these steps; "head to your My Page > Profile on the top left of the HOME menu". Just like most firmware updates, "general system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience" have also been added. It is unclear what these improvements are, but they are welcomed.
