With the latest #Firmware Update, players can finally record videos on a handful of Nintendo Switch games. Games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a plethora of indies along with the apealing technology that allows you to take great games with you wherever you go have helped catapult the console into one of the best selling consoles of 2017. Once installed, gamers will be able to long-press the capture button on the left Joy-Con controller to save up to 30 seconds of gameplay footage.

Mic functionality is still up in the air, so don't expect this update to be a replacement for the Nintendo Switch voice app just yet however. You can change that icon through the profile option on the Switch. This process will entirely wipe whatever selected data is moved from the source system. Up to a maximum of the previous 30 seconds then gets saved in an Album, from which uses can trim the beginning and end of each clip and post to Facebook or Twitter. Currently, only four games are compatible with video capture: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Splatoon 2.

Now, you have the ability to transfer user and save data to another system, if that becomes a necessity. On Thursday, October 26, the Super Mario Odyssey trailer that has been touring America will arrive at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, home to the official Nintendo NY store. There is also now a pre-purchase option available for certain games on Nintendo's eShop for the Switch.

Microsoft Email-Access Fight With US Gets Supreme Court Review
The case began in 2013, when USA prosecutors got a warrant to access emails in a drug trafficking investigation. Whether that's a valid concern or irrational fear, Microsoft is upbeat about the Supreme Court challenge.

Speaking of video capture, Nintendo may be improving upon that as well.

However, those two big additions aren't the only things of note lurking in this patch. That should make the update process easier for people with limited internet connections, for example, and guarantee people can play games with friends.
