- Account Updater: a new feature that automatically updates credit card information (when it’s stored on the Nintendo eShop). Now, if your credit card expires or its number changes, the new information can be provided automatically by your bank at the time of purchase. Do note that this new feature may not be available to you: it depends on whether your bank supports it, as well as whether you’ve allowed your bank to make the changes in the first place;
- Play activity and recommendations shared among your group of friends: Nintendo will inform your friends of games you have played, and vice-versa. Of course, you will be able to control/restrict the sharing of play data via your Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Account settings.
