Nintendo Switch Firmware Update Ver. 5.0.2 now available [Patch Notes]

A brand new firmware update has been released for the Nintendo Switch which can be downloaded right now. The Nintendo Switch Firmware Update Ver. 5.0.2 is another stability update which unfortunately doesn’t include a controller update that many were hoping for.

Patch notes for the update are as below:

General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience, including:

  • Resolved an issue that caused motion controls to respond incorrectly when playing games that use the feature
  • Resolved an issue that caused user icons for recommended friends to not display correctly

Nothing major but having more stability never hurts right?

I just keep hoping with each update that they add more avatars, I need a Xenoblade 2 avatar asap.
