Here’s What To Expect From Switch’s Day One Patch

When the Nintendo Switch launches this coming Friday, users will be expected to download a Day One update. Much like the Wii U before it, this patch will unlock the console’s eShop and additional online-dependent features. For all specifics, here’s what is promised to be included with the update, as relayed by Nintendo Everything.

As previously promised, the update patches in access to the eShop, online gaming, and the ability to share images to social media. You will also be able to connect to your Nintendo Account.

The update will also grant a web applet to “connect online using hotspots that require authentication, such as at a hotel or café. A web applet will open up so the user can sign-in or accept terms of use.” In order to have games download from Nintendo’s web store directly to your Switch, you’ll have to use the system’s native eShop at least once.

Unlike with the Wii U’s massive launch update, users can download the Switch’s update in the background. That way, there will be no interruptions to their marathon Breath of the Wild sessions. The update goes live shortly before the system’s March 3rd launch worldwide.
