Nintendo Switch Update 3.0.0 — Locate Missing Joy Cons, Use USB Keyboards, and more!

/

Last night, Nintendo hit us with a surprise firmware update. This was Nintendo Switch Update 3.0.0. While the update adds very little in the way of features or apps we were hoping to see, it does add some great stuff. Just to mention a few stand-outs, you can now locate missing Joy Cons by making them vibrate. You can also add friends from you Wii U or 3DS friends list. You can use a USB keyboard instead of the on-screen one. You can also use wired communication for the pro controllers (something I’m sure Smash fans will be pleased with whenever that becomes a thing).

Rather than ramble off the entire list in one paragraph, though, we’ll just show you everything below. Nintendo actually gave us patch notes, so it would be a good idea to use them.
