Nintendo Switch Version 14.1.1 Is Here, But Don't Expect Much

The latest Switch update doesn't change much about the console experience.


The latest 14.1.1 firmware update for the Nintendo Switch is here, but the patch notes are brief, offering little beyond unspecified stability improvements. The patch is only a minor one, with the last lot of major changes having been added with patch 14.0.0, which was released on March 21.

The latest update was released on April 18, and includes only one item in the patch notes, promising general improvements to system stability and user experience. The update should automatically download upon starting up your console, but players can also check their system version and manually start the update from the System Settings menu.
