Nintendo Switch Update Adds Ability to Transfer Data to SD Card

Posted on April 14, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Games with 4 Comments

Nintendo is rolling out a major update to the Switch system this week. The company is releasing version 10.0.0 of the Switch software, and it adds a much-awaited option for users.

Those with lots of games and content on their Switch will now be happy to know that the Switch lets user transfer data between the internal storage and an SD card with this latest update. “Users can now transfer downloadable software, update data, and DLC from the system memory to an SD card (and vice versa),” said Nintendo.

The new capability still won’t allow gamers to transfer their save data and “some” update data to their SD card.

Apart from the new transferring capabilities, the new update also adds the ability to remap controller buttons. Nintendo Switch now lets you configure the analog stick and buttons for each paired controller, and you can also save up to 5 custom configurations. Users can only customize the configurations for the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers and Nintendo’s Switch Pro controller, however.

There are some other minor updates, including 6 new icons from Animal Crossing: New Horizons that you can use for your user profile icon. The update also lets users bookmark up to 300 news items from the news app.
