Nintendo Switch update: New enhancements confirmed following Splatoon 2 multiplayer reveal
The Nintendo Switch update is the first since the day one patch but is nowhere near as exciting.
While fans were provided access to the eShop following the first patch, Nintendo Switch Version 2.1.0 provides scant patch notes.
“General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience,” appears to be all that has changed.
Fans have been waiting for the debut of the virtual console, a popular feature that is reportedly seeing a big expansion on the Switch.
The first game to be featured on it looks set to be Secret of Mana and its sequel, which were recently confirmed.
The games will launch as part of the Seiken Densetsu Collection , which features the first three games in the series.
So while a Seiken Densetsu 3 Virtual Console release looks unlikely in the UK, fans could import the collection and play all three games on Nintendo Switch, which is region free.
The Secret of Mana successor was never released in the UK or US, even on the Wii U Virtual Console.
It follows the big news for those hoping to play Splatoon 2 while on the move.
The recent Splatoon 2 Global Testfire gave fans their first chance to play the new game ahead of its release date.
The Splatoon 2 beta gave gamers who downloaded it six separate opportunities to test the game ahead of launch, with some good results recorded.
