Nintendo Switch now has video capture and save data transfer built in

Nintendo Switch Update 4.0 Lets You Transfer Save Data

Transferring game save data and user profiles between one Switch console and another sounds more straightforward, however.

Players looking to transfer save data from one Nintendo Switch to another should first make sure that both units are updated to version 4.0.0 and connected to the internet. Once installed, gamers will be able to long-press the capture button on the left Joy-Con controller to save up to 30 seconds of gameplay footage. Right now, the only compatible games are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Splatoon 2.

Which is probably why it took a full day to realise that the new software update for the Nintendo Switch contains a pretty massive improvement to the system. Nintendo has not indicated if or when other titles will be supported, and for now, it also hasn't announced the ability to simply grab those video clips as files to be used however you see fit.


When combined with the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and the plug-and-play Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, Nintendo systems claimed two-thirds of the months total video game hardware sales. This is likely something that they wanted in place for the launch of Super Mario Odyssey. That's why it was so smart of Nintendo to add the ability to pre-pay and pre-load games ahead of release.

Nintendo has given its Switch game console a huge feature boost with the latest firmware update.

Other additions include new user icons themed around Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. From there, you'll see a "System Update" option - select that! Better yet, it works on the go too - you'll just need a USB-C adapter to connect to the bottom of the Switch itself. Anything open before the system update starts will be closed, and the console will reset.
