While the Nintendo Switch might not be your typical platform when it comes to multiplayer games, we aren’t forgetting Nintendo’s hybrid console — especially not when it’s selling like gangbusters.
Today, the big N has released a new Nintendo Switch update for the console (3.0.2) that’s mostly about system stability improvements (yum!), but also adds online play for a bunch of countries, which is currently for free.
Improvements Included in Version 3.0.2
- Nintendo Switch Online
- Added online play in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Peru. This is currently available for free until the paid online service launches in 2018.
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience
How to update your Nintendo Switch console
- If your Nintendo Switch is connected to the internet, your console will download the update automatically.
- Once the download is complete, you’ll be asked if you’d like to install the update. Be sure to save any game progress before you continue.
- When you’re ready to install the update, choose “update” to install. Your console will restart to complete the update.
