Nintendo Switch 5.0.2 System Update Released, Brings A Couple Of Fixes

Nintendo has released the latest system software update for the Nintendo Switch. The update is live and you can install it right now on your system. The latest update brings the console to the version 5.0.2.

This update focuses on system stability to enhance the user experience and addresses the motion control issue. This update is also going to fix the user icon issues which were reported by many Nintendo Switch users.

Just like previous Nintendo Switch software updates, the patch notes are minimal and you can take a look at them 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

Nintendo had an amazing last year and this looks the same. It is good to see Nintendo bringing latest performance updates to the system to provide the better user experience.

Last month Nintendo became the fastest selling console ever in the United States. Nintendo Switch did have an excellent year and have a record set of most sales for a gaming console ever during the first 12 months in the United States. The NPD, an American Research Group recently released a report which marked Nintendo Switch sales to increase incredibly over the last year.

NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said in a statement that the Switch in the past 12 years has reached the highest install base console in the US history, during the first 12 months. Which means that Nintendo Switch in the US has sold more units during the first 12 months than the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and More than the PlayStation 2 and Wii.

Nintendo Switch can easily cross over 30 Million units in 2 years if they keep bringing these updates to the system along with a strong lineup of games as it was recently discovered that Biomutant and Darksiders 3 might be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
