Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers Illustration

Nintendo has rolled out the big 6.0.0 update for the Nintendo Switch. Following this update and a system restart, you'll be prompted to update each of your Switch Joy-Con controllers.

As previously explained, it means you will no longer be able to unlink your Nintendo account from your Switch user account. This update is a rather significant one, aligning with the release of Nintendo's online service. From here on out, you'll be required to pay to play Nintendo's games online. It's worth noting the system now supports digital game sharing across multiple Switch devices.

The NES software library can also be downloaded from the eShop. To actually open it, you'll need to have access to a membership. Fortunately, there's a free 7-day trial you can sign up to right now. In saying this, you will still need to provide payment details and then remove them before the service automatically charges you once the free period has expired.

What have you noticed about the new update so far? Are you ready to play some NES games on your Switch? Tell us below.
