Nintendo Switch System Update 12.0.0 Is Now Live

Nintendo Switch

Although there were reports of a minor system update on its way to the Switch last month, it seems Nintendo has instead jumped straight to Version 12.0.0.

If you were hoping for things like folders, themes and various other exciting features, we’re sorry to say, but there’s none of that. Instead, this latest update fixes an issue tied to the save data backup feature.

Here’s the full rundown of the official patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo’s website:

Ver. 12.0.0 (Released April 5, 2021)

We fixed the issue with the save data backup feature, where in rare cases, the automatic backup of save data is interrupted if a communication error occurs during completion of the save data backup process.

Well-known dataminer OatmealDome has also shared some additional information about Version 12.0.0:

This update follows on from Version 11.0.1, which was released in December last year, and corrected a number of problems that occurred with Version 11.0.0. Learn more about this in our previous post.
