Nintendo May Be Looking to Extend Switch Video Capture

Possibly expanding to one, three, and five minutes of recording time.

Nintendo just recently added video capture to Switch, and may already be looking to extend the allotted recording time.

According to Kotaku‘s sources, Nintendo is planning to extend the recording limit, as the function is currently limited to 30 seconds of video time and only works for select first-party titles that support it.

The company allegedly wants to keep the time restriction in place until all first-party titles support the feature. Nintendo also reportedly wants larger third-party games that use its characters, like Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, supported early, and will be actively approaching the studios behind those titles to make it happen.

Once video capture is more widely supported and has proven to work regularly for consumers, Nintendo allegedly intends to expand the feature with options for one-minute, three-minute, and five-minute recordings. This would be done through a firmware update, so developers wouldn’t need to patch their games again to allow for longer video recording.

In addition to video capture, the latest system update for Switch adds other new features, including the ability to transfer user and save data.

Nintendo Switch was the top-selling console in the United States in September, surpassing 2 million units sold in the country since launch.
