Nintendo deploys small firmware update for Switch that fixes a few lingering issues


Motion and icon problems

Nintendo just dropped a new update on Switch last night: version 5.0.2. It's a quick update, but it manages to squash a few bugs that have been lingering for a while.

"Resolved an issue that caused motion controls to respond incorrectly when playing games that use the feature," is a pretty obvious positive change, as having something deadzone or glitch out was a pain (which is something that hasn't happened nearly as much as it did on the Wii for me), as well as "Resolved an issue that caused user icons for recommended friends to not display correctly," which helps avoid confusion when adding people.

Hey, it's better than "stability," or thinly veiled attempts to combat Homebrew!
