The latest firmware update 12.1.0 for the Nintendo Switch console is now available for download. The new update brings improvements to the hybrid console which will be useful for users who have a problem with the lack of space for the next game patches.

As we all know, in this month of July many new games will debut such as Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Therefore, the company wants to improve its platform by bringing this new firmware update into play.

If there is insufficient space on the memory card, players will be able to delete old game update data and then download the latest patch. You can check the Nintendo Switch firmware update 12.1.0 changelog below:

Added the following system functionality:

  • If there is not enough space remaining on the system memory (internal storage) or microSD card when downloading game software update data, you can now delete old data for that software, enabling you to download the new data.
    • When deleting the old data, you won’t be able to play the game until the new data has finished downloading.

General system stability improvements have been made to enhance the user’s experience.

The update is not too revolutionary, but many users will be able to take advantage of it when downloading the next patches for games that take up a lot of space from time to time.

Recall that last week the president of Nintendo refused to take about the rumors revolving around Nintendo Switch Pro.
