New Nintendo Switch System Update 13.2.1 Released and Here’s What it Does


Nintendo has rolled out a new firmware version for the Switch, Switch system update 13.2.1, and here are the official and unofficial release notes.

Like most of Nintendo’s Switch system updates, this new firmware version seemingly only improves the system’s general stability – at least, that’s what the official release notes mention. For the sake of completeness, we’ve included these notes, as released by Nintendo, down below:

  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.

As is common, however, new firmware releases also contain some under-the-hood changes, and as spotted by known Switch dataminer @OatMealDome, this new system update also contains changes (likely bug fixes) to the console’s Bluetooth and SSL system components.
