With yesterday’s Switch firmware update, Nintendo finally introduced the ability to capture video. There are a couple of caveats, however. You can only use the feature with a few select Nintendo games, and you’re limited to just 30 seconds of gameplay.
Kotaku UK spoke with two sources who say that Nintendo has more in mind for video recording on Switch. The company’s first goal is to have all first-party games supporting the functionality, as well as titles tied to Nintendo properties. In other words, titles like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Fire Emblem Warriors are the priority at the moment.

Nintendo updated Switch last night with a number of major features. The system now has the ability to capture video for select games, you can transfer data between consoles, and more. We have the full rundown from here.
Aside from what Nintendo mentioned, the new system update adds a few “hidden” features. Among these is support for wireless USB headsets.
Happen to have a PlayStation headset lying around? That’ll work with Switch. Just plug it in and you’re good to go. Usage is primarily intended for docked play, but with an adapter, you should be able to get it working in portable mode as well.
