Bethesda has released Skyrim Switch Update 1.1 which offers support for video capture and fixes various motion control issues.

The majority of the update appears to be focused on improving motion controls in the game after players reported getting stuck after performing an attack with the Switch Joy-Con.  Down below you’ll find some motion control issues that players have been reporting

Motion Controls:

ISSUE: I’m partially stuck after trying to perform a power attack with the left Joy-Con while on horseback

RESOLUTION: Dismount the horse. Left handed power attacks currently do not work on horseback. This issue is fixed in the 1.1 update that’s available now.

ISSUE: I’m stuck in mid attack animation after trying to perform a power attack with the right Joy-Con

RESOLUTION: Press the right side attack button (ZR by default) to complete the attack. This issue is fixed in the 1.1 update that’s available now.

ISSUE: Attacks are not registering when using the up and down motion with the left hand

RESOLUTION: For left handed attacks, use the side to side motion in order to perform attacks. This issue is fixed in the 1.1 update that’s available now.

ISSUE: I cannot bow bash using motion controls

RESOLUTION: Use the left Joy-Con trigger to bow bash. This issue is fixed in the 1.1 update that’s available now.

ISSUE: Archery crosshairs will gradually drift downward with an arrow/bolt drawn

RESOLUTION: Turn off motion controls and use game controls to aim.

Aside from audio fixes, the patch also offers traditional Chinese language support. You’ll find the full patch notes for the 1.1 update down below:
