Several new features added in Nintendo Switch firmware 9.0.0 update

The first good addition that comes with the new update is a search bar in the channel list in the 'News' section. You are now able to restrict the search to followed channels.

The second is an option to display a QR code on your system, enabling you to register for Nintendo events!

Many other features have also been added, such as alarm notifications, the ability to modify the sensitivity of the touch screen, and update your Joy-Con.


Official Patch Notes

Added the following system functionality:

  • Added a search feature for the News Channel. Channels can be searched using filters or free text.
  • Added “Display QR Code to Check In” to User Settings. You can display a QR Code on-screen to check in using your Nintendo Account.
  • Alarm Notifications have been added to System Settings > Notifications. You can check or delete pre-set alarms.
  • Alarms can be set up only within supported software (to be added at a later time).
  • A controller firmware update may be required to use this feature.
  • You can now configure touch screen sensitivity settings. Select between Standard and Stylus sensitivity (optimized for stylus input).
  • Added the option to turn on/off the system button input (Nintendo Switch Lite only). When this setting is turned off the system no longer receives input from the console buttons, with the exception of the Capture and HOME Buttons, and can only be operated from a wirelessly paired controller (sold separately).
  • This setting is on by default and can only be turned off if a compatible controller (sold separately) is wirelessly paired to the console.
  • The setting will automatically turn back on when the console is restarted or after returning from sleep mode.
    Added “Online Play Invites” section to the User's page. Invites from friends to join online play in supported software will be displayed in this section.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience. Resolved an issue where some users can’t start the Fire Emblem: Three Houses game, and get an error instead.

Make sure you update your consoles as soon as possible to take advantage of these new features!

Fire Emblem Three houses: Version 1.02, Wave 2 and higher difficulty

The new difficulty mode promised by the developers for Fire Emblem: Three Houses has finally arrived, and is titled 'Maddeding'. Other new features and balance changes are also on the menu.
