Switch Update Adds Video Capture

Switch Update Adds Video Capture

With firmware 4.0.0, the ability for (limited) video capture and transferring data to another Switch console is now possible.

Now, this doesn't necessarily resolve the chat issues with games, as you still need the adapter and what-not to talk with friends, but for those with headsets that they've been waiting to use with the system, this is certain to come as a relief. You can go into the album to trim the videos and to post them directly to Facebook and Twitter.

A tweet from the game's official account confirms that you'll be able to save the past 30 seconds of your journey via the Capture Button.

Capturing video on the Nintendo Switch, meanwhile, is much simpler compared to transferring save data.

Today Nintendo announced with a press release that the Switch has once more topped the NPD figures for the month of September, ranking as the best selling current-generation hardware in the United States. The process enables users to permanently migrate their data.

You can access the save transfer from the system settings off the main menu, and then you have to scroll down to the user section and there should be an option to transfer either your user or saved data to a new Nintendo Switch console.

The Nintendo Switch is available now.

The Nintendo Switch can now capture 30-second chunks of gameplay for a select number of games thanks to an update that hit the system overnight.

Nintendo games have also topped the charts, with four of its titles within the top 11.

However, those two big additions aren't the only things of note lurking in this patch.

System update 4.0.0 is available for download right now, as long as you have an internet connection. Maybe that'll keep fans busy enough to ignore the system's continued lack of multimedia apps or Virtual Console options.
