Nintendo Switch, support for Bluetooth audio inserted in firmware 12.0?

Nintendo Switch, support for Bluetooth audio inserted in firmware 12.0?

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch does not support Bluetooth audio devices, but the situation could change soon: apparently the 12.0 firmware, released in recent days, introduces this feature.

In short, in addition to the information relating to the upgradeable 4K dock , in the 12.0 update there would also be a function quite desired by the owners of the hybrid console, so far unable to use Bluetooth headphones and earphones.

Unfortunately, it is still too early to sing victory, in the sense that Bluetooth audio support it has not been officially mentioned by Nintendo in the changelog of the new firmware.

It is therefore possible that this is a preliminary addition, on which to carry out technical tests before giving the green light and communicating the important news to users.

Another hypothesis, of course, is that the Japanese company is laying the software foundations for the announcement that we are all waiting for, that of Nintendo Switch Pro or New Nintendo Switch, whatever you want.

The new console could certainly make its appearance on the digital stage of E3 2021, considering Doug Bowser's enthusiasm for the event.

Exploding Kittens is one of the quirkiest card games currently available and now Nintendo Switch users can get their hands on it via their consoles. Cats in real life can be a tad moody and dangerous when so, as pet owners would know. 

Cats are prone to absurdly random fits of excitement and energy, often occurring at 4am as you’re trying to sleep. But in the game Exploding Kittens, they can also explode and the aim of the player is to trick another player into drawing an exploding kitten so that they lose. 

As for the game on Nintendo Switch, it has been described as, 'Play your cards to try to avoid, move, or defuse the Exploding Kitten. If you don't explode, you win! Congratulations, you are full of greatness. Play with friends in the same room or online, or play with strangers in online play. Not into other people? Play single player against kitty-bot opponents!'

'This version of the game includes the Streaking Kittens, Party Pack, and Betrayal Pack expansions, exclusive cards, and hilarious illustrations by The Oatmeal.' Says the Nintendo Switch listing, 'With millions of games sold and downloaded, Exploding Kittens is the perfect card game for players of all ages who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.'

The game has a file size of 268 MB and went live on April 8 and up to 8 players can participate in the game at a time. The game has been priced at $9.99 on Nintendo Switch and is apparently 'the most-backed game in Kickstarter history'.

Exploding Kittens has in fact made it to a couple of our own lists of some of the most interesting card games that can be played.
