Since the launch of Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition last week, some users have been reporting an odd issue. Without any input from the user, the problem involves screenshots being taken automatically and randomly. While not confirmed at the time, the situation appeared to be tied to Minecraft.

4J Studios posted an update on Twitter today confirming that Minecraft is indeed the cause, and Nintendo now knows what’s causing it. A bug fix will be addressed soon to not only address problems with screenshots, but false Home button presses as well.
