Nintendo Switch System Update 10.0.0 is out now and adds button mapping



The long-awaited Nintendo Switch system update 10.0.0 was just released and brought a couple of nifty features. Unfortunately, themes and folders aren’t the features I’m referring to. Despite bringing along a welcomed accessibility feature (button mapping), some people, like myself, wish this update included some of the more fun features (e.g. themes and folders) considering ten is such a huge milestone. But at least we can now change our profile avatar to Flick from Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
