Nintendo Switch Update Version 16.0.0 Now Available

Newest update after many months.

The newest Nintendo Switch update version 16.0.0 is now available to download after a long time since last year.

The previous update, update version 15.0.1 was released way back after Halloween 2022. With this new version, various bugs have been fixed, but there seem to be no new major additions to the UI or features this time around. This is not a major addition, but this new addition will make user nicknames that cannot be used be replaced with “???” instead. It is a useful feature that lets players know which nicknames should not be used rather than blindly entering random names.

Check out the very short patch notes below:

Ver. 16.0.0 (Released February 20, 2023)

  • User nicknames that cannot be used will be replaced with “???” which can be updated from the profile settings.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.

The newest update is available now. Just check system software update to start downloading the latest version.
