Switch System Update 5.0.0 Is Out Now, And It's Got New Profile Pics

ARMS you glad you've got new profile pics?

Not to be outdone by PlayStation 4 5.50, Nintendo have raced to system update 5.0.0 for Nintendo Switch, and I bet you’ll be overjoyed to see all the features they’ve packed into it.

OK, so there’s basically nothing here to really justify the full version number jump, but I guess Nintendo can do what the hell they want. Will there be any hidden features? Well, people are already reporting that the update has helped fix some Joy-Con sync issues

Improvements Included in Version 5.0.0
