Nintendo Takes a Third of All September Hardware Sales

21 October 2017

Nintendo quietly added wireless headphone support to the Switch with the 4.0.0 update. It can be initiated through the System Settings menu, where a new Transfer Your User and Save Data option will appear under Users.

Any doubts that Nintendo has clawed its way back to relevance in the video game industry has been shattered by now, with the success of the Nintendo Switch paving the company's path into the future.

While complete gameplay streaming or saving is still not possible on the Nintendo Switch, you can choose to capture about 30 seconds of an action-packed event on screen and save it to your album. All first party titles will eventually support 30 seconds of video capture once the latest update is individually applied to each game. Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was the 7th best selling individual game of the month, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild finishing 10th and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 11th. The 27th of this month will see the release of Super Mario Odyssey and games in the flagship Mario franchise always do well when it comes to sales.

To take advantage of the new feature, simply plug in your headphone's USB adapter to the USB port on the Switch's dock, and you'll be good to go. The new patch also brings changes to wireless connectivity.

While up to eight accounts, and therefore eight sets of saved games, can share the same Switch console, the transfer function could encourage guests to buy their own consoles and carry on with their adventures more conveniently.
