The latest Switch firmware update bumped the Switch up to Version 17.0.0, and Nintendo was rather light on the official patch notes. Thankfully, the dataminer OatmealDome has shared a bit more insight into what the update does.
This update focuses solely on additions to the Switch’s banned word’s list, the new words are:
- A Nazi phrase has been banned in all languages, whereas it was only banned in some before
- Japanese phrases referencing killing were blocked
- The word “Leprosy” was blocked in Dutch specifically.
Special thanks to Oatmeal Dome on Twitter/X for their work in making the content of these updates known.
