It seems that the version 6.0.0 firmware for the Nintendo Switch is set to come out soon, as several hackers have found data on what has been added and changed on the system. These include support for Nintendo Switch Online, and new profile picture icons. [Thanks, OatmealDome on Reddit!]


Here are some of the features:

  • Nintendo Switch Online subscription support (Slogan: “More Games. More Features. More Fun.”)
  • Save data backup
  • New Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker icons: 2x Captain Toad, 2x Toadette, 1x Wingo, 1x Draggadon
  • New controller icons: Famicom, NES, SNES/SFC
  • Mitigations against an unreleased Switch exploit called ‘deja vu’
  • Enhanced telemetry to detect exploit utilities


Nintendo Switch Online is currently set to go live in the second half of September.
