A new firmware update has been released for the Nintendo Switch and it brings the system up to version 8.0.1.


Last week Nintendo released a massive firmware update for the Nintendo Switch. The update brought the system to version 8.0.0 and added several new functionality features such as a sorting software option, 'view all news option' 15 new avatars, a transfer save data feature, a zoom feature, sleep mode and much more.

The new update that was recently released hasn't added as much as version 8.0.0, in fact no new features have been released at all. This new firmware update is purely for "General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience."
