Switch firmware 10.0.0 lets you remap your controllers

So then you won't hit keep hitting back instead of confirm when you go back to PS4 or Xbox One...

Switch firmware 10.0.0 is now available, and amongst its offerings is the ability to (FINALLY) remap its controllers. Also included in the firmware update is the ability to move data between an SD card and the Switch’s internal HDD.

The button mapping means that you can control which Switch control input does what… which may be useful for those playing Animal Crossing and then jumping back over to PS4 or Xbox One and hitting the back button when you mean to accept something.

In terms of the data transfer, you can move game and update content between the Switch and an SD card — and vice versa — but keep in mind that save data is exempt.

Full patch notes are below:

  • Added a bookmark feature to News. This feature allows you to bookmark your favorite news items.
    • A maximum of 300 news items can be bookmarked.
    • An internet connection is required to view bookmarked News items.
