New Switch update lets players remap controller buttons and transfer game data to an SD card

Along with a wealth of new features.

Nintendo recently released the Ver. 10.0.0 system update for the Switch and Switch Lite, and it brings a lot of long-awaited features including the ability to remap controller buttons, transfer game data to the console’s memory card, and many more.

The biggest feature in the new update is no doubt the ability to remap buttons. With the Ver. 10.0.0 update, users can now change analog stick and button configurations for both the left and right Joy-Con, as well as a Switch Pro Controller. Switch Lite users will also be able to customize the controls on their console. For both the Switch and Switch Lite, users can save up to five custom configurations per controller.

A feature that’s long been requested by Switch users is the ability to transfer software date from system memory to an SD card, and the new update finally brings this feature to players. Upon updating to Ver 10.0.0, Switch user will be able to transfer data such as downloadable software, updates, and DLC from the system memory to an SD card (and vice versa). Though according to Nintendo, not all save and update data can be transferred to an SD card.

Other features added in the new update include the ability to bookmark news items, as well as a new section in the Settings for Play Activity Settings. Ver. 10.0.0 also brings six new profile icons from Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
