Nintendo Switch – Disponibile il servizio Online e il firmware 6.0.0 della console

Il giorno è arrivato per Nintendo Switch. Oggi la console della grande N non solo riceve il servizio Nintendo Switch Online, di cui abbiamo parlato ampiamente in passato, ma anche un nuovo firmware che porta il sistema operativo alla sua versione 6.0.0.

Mentre Nintendo Switch Online aggiunge la possibilità di giocare online solo tramite abbonamento, i salvataggi in cloud, la chat vocale tramite app, sconti aggiuntivi e una libreria di classici NES, il nuovo firmware, invece, inserisce particolari feature che abbiamo riportato di seguito:

Nintendo Switch Online* features and functionality have been added, including:

  • Save Data Cloud Backup
    • User your internet connection to back up game save data for compatible games
    • Some games are not compatible with Save Data Cloud
    • To back up save data or download a previous backup, head to System Settings > Data Management > Save Data Cloud Backup

    *Nintendo Switch Online membership (sold separately) and Nintendo Account required for online play. Not available in all countries. Internet access required for online features. Save Data Cloud backup available in compatible games. Terms apply. To learn more, click here.

    • Only one captured video can be uploaded at once
  • Select from six new Captain Toad icons for your user
    • To edit your user icon, head to your My Page on the top left of the Home Menu > Profile
  • Play your digital software and content on non-primary consoles by linking your Nintendo Account
    • The term “active console” has been renamed “primary console” in Nintendo eShops
    • Playing software in multiple consoles has certain restrictions
  • Display of Nintendo Switch News articles will be limited to match the restricted software parental controls setting selections
    • Please note that the restriction will only apply to News articles distributed after the release of version 6.0.0.
  • Change the layout of the USB keyboard to the desired language
    • To change the language, head to the System Settings > System > USB Keyboard

Removed the following system functionality

  • After installing the system update, it will no longer be possible to unlink your Nintendo Account from your Nintendo Switch user

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

  • Compatibility improvements have been made for a controller licensed by Nintendo

E non finisce qui, tra le feature che sono state aggiunte c’è anche la possibilità del game sharing tra più console. Una volta registrato il proprio abbonamento online, infatti, sarà possibile inserire questo account anche in altre console e condividere i giochi:

The first time you use your Nintendo Account to connect to the Nintendo Switch eShop, the Nintendo Switch console you use will be activated as the primary console for your Nintendo Account. After you have designated your Nintendo Account’s primary console you can still link that account to other Nintendo Switch consoles, but these consoles will not be activated as primary consoles.

When using the primary console, any user on that device can play downloadable content you have purchased. You are also not required to connect online prior to using downloadable content on your primary console (an Internet connection is required to use online features or games which require a subscription service).

If you deactivate your primary console, the next time you use your Nintendo Account to connect to Nintendo eShop on a Nintendo Switch console, that console will become your Nintendo Account’s primary console.

To verify whether a console is the primary console for your Nintendo Account, check the “Primary Console Status” in your Nintendo eShop Account Information.

Key Points:

Primary Console:

  • You can have one primary console at a time for your Nintendo Account.
  • The first Nintendo Switch console you use to connect to Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch will become your primary console.
  • While using the primary console, any user account on the console can play the downloadable content you have purchased.
  • While using the primary console, you do not need to have an active Internet connection while playing downloadable software.
    • An Internet connection is still required to use online features or games which require a subscription service.
  • You can change which Nintendo Switch console is your primary console but you must first deactivate the current primary console.

Non-Primary Console:

  • A Nintendo Account can be linked to Nintendo Switch consoles that are not designated as the primary console, however, some functionality differs from when a Nintendo Account is used on a primary console.
  • While using a non-primary console, you can still use the Nintendo Account to access the Nintendo eShop, purchase and download software, and under certain conditions, play your downloadable software.
  • While using a non-primary console, you must have an active Internet connection to play downloadable content.
    • If you lose your Internet connection while playing downloadable content on a non-primary console, your game will pause after a certain amount of time; however, once you connect online again, you will be able to resume from the point you left off.
  • While using a non-primary console, downloadable content can only be started by the user that purchased the content.
  • When using downloadable software on a non-primary console, your game will pause if your Nintendo Account is used to access downloadable software on any other Nintendo Switch console.

How It Works:

Activating your primary console:

  1. Link a Nintendo Account to your Nintendo Switch console.
  2. Access the Nintendo eShop and select your Nintendo Account.
  3. If the Nintendo Account does not already have an active console, this console will become the primary console for your Nintendo Account.

Making a different console the primary console:

  1. Access the Nintendo eShop on your primary console and deactivate the console for your Nintendo Account from the user menu.
    • If you do not have access to the original console, you can also deactivate a primary console off-device once per year.
    • Off-device deactivations can be done by visiting accounts.nintendo.com, selecting “Shop Menu”, and then “Deactivate Primary Console”.
  2. On the second Nintendo Switch console, use the same Nintendo Account to access the Nintendo Switch eShop. This is now the activated console for your account.

Anche i controller di Nintendo Switch ricevono un aggiornamento che, sicuramente, li renderanno compatibili con i giochi del NES disponibili nel catalogo del servizio online.
