Nintendo Switch update 12.1.0 also includes an update for the Joy-Con: how to update them and more

Early last night we informed you about the availability of Nintendo Switch version 12.1.0. Well, as with other updates, we now know that this latest patch also includes an update for the Joy-Con controllers.

It’s unclear what the update includes for the controllers beyond general stability improvements. It is likely that Nintendo is preparing the Joy-Con’s to deliver the best experience. For this reason, we recommend you update them as soon as possible.

In case you do not know how to update the controllers, we leave you with the steps to follow:

  • 1) From the Start menu, select ‘System Settings’. Then ‘Controls and Sensors’ on the left side.
  • 2) Scroll down to ‘Update controllers’, press that option and the console will update the controllers.
