Nintendo has released a new firmware update for Switch. As of today, all users can access version 12.1.0.

Once installed, it will be possible to delete old data for a piece of software when trying to update if you don’t have enough space available. It also includes stability improvements.

Below are the official patch notes:

  • If there is not enough space remaining on the system memory (internal storage) or microSD card when downloading game software update data, you can now delete old data for that software, enabling you to download the new data.
    • When deleting the old data, you won’t be able to play the game until the new data has finished downloading.
  • General system stability improvements have been made to enhance the user’s experience.

The previous update for Switch, version 12.0.3, came out last month. Nintendo actually pulled the firmware, but it went back up about a day later.
