Nintendo Switch system update 14.1.0 patch notes

Nintendo launched the Switch system update 14.1.0 and its accompanying patch notes on the evening of April 4, 2022. The whole point of this one is letting players know when they have unspent Platinum Points where it matters. The Switch will now pop up with notifications if you have Platinum Points just sitting around. There’s also a new system setting where you can turn the notification off if you want. Check out the full patch notes for Nintendo Switch system update 14.1.0 below:

Ver. 14.1.0 (Released April 4, 2022)

"Platinum Point Notification Settings" has been added under Notifications in System Settings.

  • Unclaimed Platinum Points earned from completing Nintendo Switch Online missions on your Nintendo Switch system will generate notifications.
  • Setting these notifications to OFF will hide the notification sent when there are unclaimed Platinum Points.

That’s all there is to the Switch system update 14.1.0. It comes pretty quickly after a March update where group folders were finally added to the Switch. In addition, Nintendo has kicked off a new event where players can claim Animal Crossing and Splatoon 2 player icons in missions until May. Stay tuned for further updates and patches adding new features the Nintendo Switch soon.
