Switch update 16.0.3

It’s time for the latest Switch firmware update, as Nintendo just started distribution of version 16.0.3. However, there aren’t a whole lot of surprises here.

Nintendo’s patch notes are similar to what we’ve seen for Switch firmware updates as of late. Again, the company says stability improvements are the focus.

The official patch notes for the Switch version 16.0.3 update are as follows:

Splatoon 3 just revealed the results of its sixth Splatfest, which was a special Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom-themed event featuring Power vs. Wisdom vs. Courage.

At halftime, things were looking very close. Team Power had a very small lead with 34.23 percent, but Team Wisdom and Team Courage followed closely with 33.70 percent and 32.07 percent respectively.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line no touch controls

Previous Theatrhythm games allowed games to use touch controls, but Final Bar Line is all about buttons. This is in spite of the fact that Switch does have a touch screen. In a recent interview, series director Masanobu Suzui and producer Ichiro Hazama revealed that there was some consideration around supporting both methods, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Suzui, speaking with Dengeki Online, brought up one factor which is that Switch has a capacitance-type touchscreen while 3DS featured a pressure-type one. While there was talk about supporting button controls and touch controls for each song, he said that the team “already needed multiple copies of sheet music for each song to account for difficulty levels.”

Here’s our translation of the comments from Suzui and Hazama:

A new month started up last week. Now that we’re in May, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

For Xenoblade Chronicles 3 fans, did you get a chance to go through the Future Redeemed DLC? What about some of the recent heavy hitters like Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, or Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Splatoon 3 Splatfest Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Original (4/14): To celebrate next month’s launch of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, a special Splatfest will be held in Splatoon 3. Players are being asked whether they’d side with power, wisdom, or courage.

Something that’s been teased as part of the event is a special Tricolor Turf War stage in the Scorch Gorge with “unusual, triangular geometry” – obviously a nod to the Triforce from Zelda. You can get a closer look below.
