What Nintendo Gave Your Switch In The Latest 3.0 Update

Nintendo sent out their 3.0.0 update for the Switch last night, which you can install manually this morning if you'd like, or it will be an automatic thing if the system sees you haven't done it after a certain period of time. We have a list of what was sent to your system below but in short, it's a lot of quick additions that people had been asking for and updates Nintendo felt you needed. The one area it doesn't cover that we're sure some people are angry about is online functionality when it comes to multiplayer games, specifically for the phone app that you have to use for in-game chat. Guess that will be coming down the road once Splatoon 2 is ready to go.
