Video games and their console are never perfect and because of that, they need updates. Whereas game updates focus on their gameplay and bugs to fix, console fixes usually focus on performance, or features that can improve player usability. For the Nintendo Switch, the system just got an update that did exactly that. It gave players many new features that would help them use the system more efficiently. They even made it so that you could find lost Joy-Cons, something many fans appreciate. However, there are some things that apparently weren’t mentioned in the Patch Notes for this update.
This comes from Reddit user Eyydooga, who reveals that another feature was added in this update that felt important.
“They made the joy con stick way less sensitive when browsing the eshop. It used to move like 2-3 games over at a time because there was no delay between you moving the stick in one direction and it starting its auto-scroll.”
To them, this makes navigating the Nintendo eShop way less frustrating, which is always a good thing. So, why didn’t mention this on the Nintendo Switch update? Maybe they didn’t feel it was big enough or important enough to mention. It’s hard to say.
As for the patch itself, many of the Reddit users on the Nintendo forum seem quite content with it. They note that both the big and small changes are welcome. But there are some suggestions about what else the Nintendo Switch could use. For example, one player would like a “Are You Sure?” prompt when making big decisions like canceling a download. This user went to check on the status of a game download:
“When you do that “CLOSE” and “CANCEL DOWNLOAD” are right next to each other,” says player Kwayzhar
