Nintendo Switch's new system update 3.0

Turn on your Nintendo Switch today and you'll find a new system update waiting for you: it's version 3.0, with a bunch of handy new features.

You can now add friends with a Switch who were on your 3DS or Wii U friend lists, find nearby paired controllers by getting them to vibrate, and use a Switch Pro Controller via wired connection.

But, perhaps best of all, is the way Nintendo has doled out the update's patch notes.

You may have seen this blue-haired lady before. She introduced some of the Switch's system features at launch via cartoony news posts. Her name is Amelia N.
