Nintendo Switch gets maps 1,844 days after release

GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!

Psychics feared that this day would come. Nintendo has aligned its arcane arts to bring us the banned update: the Nintendo Switch now has maps. If your pets are acting strangely and you are currently experiencing unexplained weather patterns, now you know a possible explanation.

The new feature, which Nintendo calls ‘Groups’, lets you put together games however you want. Want to merge all Mario games? You can do that. Want to annoy a friend and colleague by putting together some games that you personally think are better than Hollow Knight? That is your moral duty.

This is Nintendo, of course, so it’s not like the groups are central to Switch’s UI. Instead, you have to search for it in the “All Games” menu.

The last #NintendoSwitch update is now available, including a new feature to create groups for software on the console.

But once in that menu you can have up to 100 groups. And those groups can contain up to 200 games.

I just feel sorry for the Steam Deck. What will Valve do now?
