New Nintendo Switch Update Out Now, Adds Features And Fixes Major Bug

The latest firmware update for Nintendo Switch has arrived, and it includes a number of new features, tweaks, changes, and fixes. Version 9.0.0. (released September 9) introduces a new search feature for the News channel, a new option to pull up a QR code on your Switch to check-in at events, and new touch screen sensitivity settings. The update also introduces the ability stop the Switch from recognizing inputs from the console's buttons, except for the Capture and Home buttons. This only applies to the upcoming Switch Lite.

Additionally, the new Switch 9.0.0 update adds a section to account pages for "Online Play Invites," and as its name suggests, this is where you'll see invites from friends for supported games. Finally, the new patch fixes what sounds like a very serious issue. Apparently, there was a bug that completely prevented Fire Emblem: Three Houses from booting at all, instead returning an error. This problem has been fixed with the update through general system and stability improvements, Nintendo said.

This issue was reportedly affecting those who purchased the Three Houses season pass recently, though it's unclear how widespread the issue was or if anything else could trigger it. Whatever the case, it's fixed now.

You can see the full 9.0.0 update notes below, as posted on Nintendo's website.

Nintendo Switch Firmware 9.0.0 (September 9, 2019) Update:

  • Added a search feature for the News Channel.
    • Channels can be searched using filters or free text.
  • Added “Display QR Code to Check In” to User Settings.
    • You can display a QR Code on-screen to check in using your Nintendo Account.
  • Alarm Notifications have been added to System Settings > Notifications.
    • You can check or delete pre-set alarms.
    • Alarms can be set up only within supported software (to be added at a later time).
    • A controller firmware update may be required to use this feature.
  • You can now configure touch screen sensitivity settings.
    • Select between Standard and Stylus sensitivity (optimized for stylus input).
  • Added the option to turn on/off the system button input (Nintendo Switch Lite only).
    • When this setting is turned off the system no longer receives input from the console buttons, with the exception of the Capture and HOME Buttons, and can only be operated from a wirelessly paired controller (sold separately).
    • This setting is on by default and can only be turned off if a compatible controller (sold separately) is wirelessly paired to the console.
    • The setting will automatically turn back on when the console is restarted or after returning from sleep mode.
  • Added “Online Play Invites” section to the User's page.
    • Invites from friends to join online play in supported software will be displayed in this section.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.
    • Resolved an issue where some users can’t start the Fire Emblem: Three Houses game, and get an error instead.
