Nintendo has recently released a software update not for the Switch itself but rather for the Joy-Con controllers. To update your Joy-Cons, visit System Settings and then head to the “Controllers and Sensors” tab. Then, click on “Update Controllers” and the Joy-Cons will be updated in just a few seconds! While it is currently unknown what the update adds, there is no doubt that Nintendo will reveal that information in the future.

    Dude didn’t Rod JUST post what this update was for?

  • Rod Lloyd

    This joycon update is separate from the firmware update. No word on what this update is for according to our source.

    To monitor your heart beat duuh. Seriously tho what for?

  • hii hehe

    Couldn’t that just mean that the hardware communicates separately so they had to issue two updates to two diffrrent pieces of software?

  • Kyle A Kindel

    Maybe they are adding function to that IR blaster/sensor that is on the bottom of the right joycon.

  • Brian Barrett

    the thing is, the left joycon took about 6~10 seconds, whereas my right joycon was probably like 30 seconds. hard to gauge, but significantly longer

  • hii hehe
