DOOM Switch To Feature Limited Motion Controls

Chris Grant  Polygon

It's the biggest update for the system since it was released back in March.

It's kind of hard to believe, but DOOM on Nintendo Switch is very close to becoming a reality. Though there are some caveats.

According to the NPD Group, the Switch has outsold Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4 in five of the seven months since its launch.

For those who want to use their wireless headphones in handheld mode, they will need a USB Type-C adapter.

The Nintendo Switch can now support Bluetooth wireless headphones that uses USB receivers. What's next for the Nintendo Switch?

Frankly, it's a little weird Nintendo didn't choose to advertise this feature when the firmware update went live yesterday.

The manufacturer and software team has worked hard for months to ensure they have provided all the essential features that gamers except of this new hybrid console.

It begs the question, what else was included in this update that Nintendo hasn't told us about? Nintendo Life made a short video demonstrating how this can work. This can be done by simply holding down the Capture button, and the video will be saved in the player's gallery.

Unfortunately, the video capture functionality is only set to now work on the latest version of four first-party games. The new patch also brings changes to wireless connectivity.

It's also worth bearing in mind that you can't have your user data straddle two consoles - once it's transferred from the source console, your user profile will no longer be accessible on that first machine.

The Switch OS version 4.0 has finally added USB headphone support, save game transfers and video capture, but that one comes with a catch.

In addition, an offline game update ability has been added, meaning that friendly owners can distribute games' latest versions among themselves, rather than requiring everyone to update via direct connection to Nintendo.
