Switch firmware update 7.0.0-30 rumored to release sometime within the next 24 hours

Switch dataminers have been sniffing out all sorts of info on the Switch itself, and now they believe a new firmware update on the way. This will be Version 7.0.0-30, and apparently it's going to release sometime within the next 24 hours. What we don't have are details on what the update will provide, although language updates and stability have been rumored. We'll just have to hang tight and find out!

I hope we get some smash icons. I really want Giga Bowser!

Usually a full number like 7 indicates a large update of some kind.

Wouldn't it be cool if the snes app just appeared? I know it probably wont, but would be fun =]

I would be very happy if it did. I just don't expect it. :D

I don't think anyone of us expect it, but damn would Nintendo get some hype. ;)

Its probably stability but if it comes with Smash Bros icons I will be happy. I can FINALLY have the Kremling King as my Switch avatar icon.

For a major numbered firmware release, I should hope new icons are the least of the updates incoming. My pro controller is often unable to kick-start the Switch when it’s parked in the dock in standby mode. I really hope this is just a bug that gets fixed. I would also love the ability to create an alias for the people in my friends list. I have 3 people named ‘Dad’ and there’s nothing I can do about it. Which dad is online?!
ALSO: Give the the ability to check ALL MY GAMES for updates at once, rather than one at a time.

It would be amazing, yes. We do have that nindies thing tomorrow morning... which would be inline with the 224 hour time line... i know its 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% chance its not... but its nice to dream

It's been a long time since the last one!

Who are these data miners and how do they dig this stuff up?

One method is scouring things like Nintendo.com and it’s servers. Not the normal websites but trying to find stuff that’s accessible online that maybe shouldn’t yet be. Like a temp page or something.

Very basic example would be if Nintendo had a site with the URL:

If you changed 6.0 to 7.0 and got back a live page, even placeholder text or something, that would indicate an update might be coming soon.

It better be folders, I miss folders.

So what happened? I played a couple hours ago and wasn't prompted to download any update.

Rumors sometimes go bust. Always take rumors with a grain of salt.
