Nintendo is a company that has millions of fans across the world, but it’s pretty well documented that it doesn’t always have the easiest time meeting those fans demands.

For one, you can now utilize the L and R buttons to rewind and fast forward a portion of the game you’re playing, allowing you to retry difficult sections in a greatly streamlined way. You will also have a whole wealth of customization options, from the aspect ratio to a series of themed borders to replace the black bars on the side of the screen.
