Nintendo Switch Version 10.0 Update Adds Button Mapping

A new system update for the Nintendo Switch console is available to download now and brings button mapping and brand new icons for players to use.

Version 10.0 for the Nintendo Switch is a major update for the console as it allows for players to change which buttons do what on the Joy-Cons. To access this option, players simply have to go to System Settings on the Switch home page and select "Controllers and Sensors."

From there, Switch owners go to "Change Button Mapping" and that brings up a model of your console. After selecting the Switch, players can change what each button on the console can do from the A and B button to ZL and ZR.

After making the changes, just save your mapping to use it now or whenever you want. Read the entire patch notes below for the latest system update on Nintendo Switch.
