Nintendo Switch update lets you record video clips
The Nintendo Switch just leveled up.
Nintendo's game console has a new firmware update, that brings a few new perks including support for video capture.
That means players can record 30 second video clips of their game play by just holding down the capture button.
Previously that only took screen shots, but holding the capture button will record the previous 30 seconds of game play.
Save it to your album and then you can edit and share it to social media.
Now only a few games will let you save video but Nintendo says support for many more will be added in the future.
This update comes just a week before the launch of Nintendo's next big game, "Super Mario Odyssey." It's a bizarre 3D adventure where Mario has a magic hat that lets him control different things.
Moments like that would make for good shareable video clips.
The Switch Update 4.0 also lets you transfer data to another Switch console.
If say, one user wants to move all their saved games and settings to a new machine.
The update has a handful of other small tools Tweaks like stability improvements, news feed design changes and the ability to pre-purchase and preload some games from the Nintendo eShop.
