Nintendo Switch New Firmware Update 9.1.0 is here

Nintendo Switch System Latest Update 9.0.1 Released

Nintendo has rolled out the update 9.1.0 for the switch, which you can download now. A big patch is not available here.

What’s in the update? It improves overall system stability and resolves a problem where the color of the Joy-Con was no longer displayed.

What’s behind the paint problem?

If you connect your Joy-Con to your switch, you’ll hear a sound and see an animation on the left and right – but this animation was previously tuned to the color of your particular Joy-Con controller.

For example, have you connected a yellow Joy-Con, it was also displayed in yellow on your screen. For some time, any Joy Cons – no matter in which color – appeared in gray. Update 9.1.0 changes that now.

The new update displays the controller colors correctly again.
