Another Switch update is here, bringing the firmware to version 7.0.0. On top of the typical “stability” enhancements, we’ve got a couple new user icons and languages.

The icons are based on New Super Mario Bros. U, meaning there’s still no Smash love, but you can represent yourself with Toadette, the Super Crown, Peachette, the 3-Up Moon, Nabbit, and a Super Acorn.

The additional language support, meanwhile, lets you navigate the home menu with Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), and Korean UI elements.

Finally, head over to Settings and the Controllers & Sensors tab and be sure to update your Joy-Con. Nintendo hasn’t specifically said what the update changes, but it’s always good to have ’em up to speed.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    Nice to be so positive all the time and I’m a Nintendo fanboy just like Nintendowire. But it’s about time to call out the truth… still no themes, still no open BT for headphones, still no eShop update. Come on Nintendo, 2020 is around the corner and the Switch UI is 2001!!!
