Switch Update lets players use Pokken Pad & Brook Universal Fighting Board as Pro Controllers

A few days ago Nintendo released a new system update to the Nintendo Switch.

The update prepares the system for the upcoming Pokken Tournament DX, which adds functionality for the Wii U’s Pokken Controller to be used as a Pro Controller.

The update also gives access to players with fightsticks who have a Brook Universal Fighting Board installed the same functionality as well. Since one of the UFB’s modes emulates a Pokkén Pro Pad, players can press and hold the 1K/LK button while plugging into the Switch for this to work.

On top of  that, the update adds the ability to add friends from your 3DS and Wii U Friends Lists, receive notifications when Friends go online, use the Pro Controller via wired communication by connecting the USB charging cable, prevent unintended HDMI input change with certain TVs while the console is docked in Sleep Mode, and more.

Get the full list of changes below.

Improvements Included in Version 3.0.0
