Nintendo Switch: update 11.4.0 coming, what are the news?

Nintendo Switch: update 11.4.0 coming, what are the news?

Nintendo Switch

Some leakers and dataminers have discovered the presence of a new update for Nintendo Switch (version 11.4.0) loaded on the servers of the Kyoto house but not yet available for download. A new firmware is coming, but what news will it introduce?

Actually, at the moment it is impossible to answer this question since there is no leaked changelog, the leak simply reveals the existence of a firmware update v11. 4.0 for Switch and Switch Lite, other information is not known.

On ResetERA there are those who wonder if this update will only fix minor bugs and optimize the operating system or if it will also include some new features, including the folders, loudly requested for years. Although functional, many consider the Nintendo Switch interface to be too sparse and the possibility of organizing games and apps in folders would certainly be appreciated by the public, but to date the company has never expressed itself on the matter.

There are also those who hypothesize that this update may be linked to the new Nintendo Switch 4K confirmed several times by Bloomberg and other economic newspapers but never announced by the Japanese house. However, it seems unlikely that the 11.4.0 firmware will debut with the new Switch, since according to rumors the console will arrive during the autumn while the update has already been loaded on the Nintendo servers.

Mario Day is just around the corner, so if you're looking for a new console to fully take advantage of all the upcoming Nintendo Switch deals we're seeing, you're shopping at the right time. Nintendo Switch stock levels are looking excellent today, with not only the standard Neon Red and Blue model in stock, but the latest Mario Red & Blue design has also hit the shelves of Best Buy. 

That means you'll find the recently released special edition for its regular $299.99 MSRP today. The special edition launched to celebrate Mario's 35th anniversary, so what better day to offer up a new wave of stock than the day before Mario Day itself?

However, you'll also find the Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch in stock for $299.99 at Best Buy right now, alongside the standard launch Neon Red / Blue colorway as well. We'd move fast on all of this Nintendo Switch stock, however, as shortages over the last year have led to these consoles flying off the shelves. 

That's not all though, because we're seeing Mario Day deals scoring big discounts on Nintendo Switch games and accessories as well. Save over $20 on a massive range of Mario's best titles at Walmart, or score a Pro Controller for just $59 this week (was $69.99).
