Version 7.0 firmware for the Nintendo Switch is now live but despite the jump from 6.2, the update adds little in the way of functionality to Nintendo’s hybrid console.
The official patch notes can be found below.
Improvements Included in Version 7.0.0 (Distributed 01/28/2019)
Select from six new New Super Mario Bros.™ U Deluxe icons for your user
To edit your user icon, head to your My Page > Profile on the top left of the HOME menu
Added additional language support to the HOME Menu for Chinese, Korean, and Taiwanese
To change the language, head to the System Settings > System > Language
General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience
It’s also worth noting there is an update available for the Joy-Cons, though Nintendo has not outlined what exactly the patch does. It’s possible they’re still working on blocking modders from using the Joy-Con as a means to access RCM mode on the console.
