1-2 Switch Joins List Of Games That Support Video Capture

The 30 second limitation probably won't be much of a problem with this one.


The launch period of the Nintendo Switch is months behind us now, and considering that much of that familiar fresh-console buzz has faded away, many players have already forgotten about 1-2 Switch, the minigame-focused Switch launch title that tasked gamers with short activities like counting balls and quick-drawing finger guns. Well, all of the Switch players still getting their fill of 1-2 Switch's rapid-fire gameplay now at least have one new feature to look forward to, as the game has recently joined the list of Nintendo Switch titles that support the newly-added Video Capture feature.

The ability to capture video footage was added in the Nintendo Switch update version 4.0.0, albeit with a few limitations — firstly, captured videos could only be up to 30 seconds in length; aside from that, only a handful of games supported the feature, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Splatoon. Now that list has been expanded to include 1-2 Switch, and it's safe to say that it's the game thats most well-suited to the 30-second limitation.

While there's no word on which games Nintendo is considering bringing the video capture feature to next, it's likely that the next additions will be some of Nintendo's own first-party titles. Hopefully a future update will include the option to include longer videos, too, since 30 seconds doesn't offer much opportunity for compelling video when it comes to games that focus more on storytelling or setup than outright action.

In the meantime, Switch owners can at least enjoy some of the additional features added in the latest Switch version 4.0.0 update, including the option to transfer Nintendo Switch user and save data as well as a refreshed take on the Switch's proprietary News channel.
