Nintendo Pushes Out Switch Firmware Update 5.0.2, Focuses On Fixes

Nintendo has pushed out an update for the Switch’s firmware. The minor update to 5.0.2 focuses on increasing the general system stability and fixes a few issues players are facing such as erroneous motion controls.

Although this should fix a few stuff, don’t expect your unauthorised third-party hardware to suddenly work again if they have been rendered unusable due to 5.0.0. You can take a look at the patch notes here or below:

  • Resolved an issue that caused motion controls to respond incorrectly when playing games that use the feature
  • Resolved an issue that caused user icons for recommended friends to not display correctly
