Nintendo Update Naming Convention

Post by gamecaptor »

I have a request for the naming convention for Nintendo game updates.

Currently the DATs list the internal update version number, but I think it would be helpful if it showed both the external version (i.e. what you see on the title screen) as well as internal version.

An example:
Chocobo GP Lite (World) (En,Ja,Fr,De,Es,It,Zh-Hant,Zh-Hans,Ko) (v1.1.0, v393216) (Update) (eShop)

I believe there is an unofficial DAT that does this for the 3DS already, but nothing for the Switch. Personally I'd like to see this be the standard as I find it helpful for tracking.

This is probably a good idea, although it'd probably be best to use the version displayed on the home menu, since that's required by Nintendo for all titles (I don't think title screen versions are).

You're correct hiccup, the information that is present there (I just was thinking about the title screen when I wrote this).
