Nintendo Switch Screenshot Bug with Minecraft Will be Fixed in an Update

Minecraft for Switch developer says Nintendo found the problem.

Some Nintendo Switch owners experience an issue with automatically taken screenshots filling up storage. The issue is related to Minecraft, released last week. Today the developer of the Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition provided an update on the issue.

Scottish 4J Studio said in a Tweet: "Nintendo has found the issue causing false Home and Screenshot button presses with Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition. Bug fix coming soon!"

It is not clear if the fix is through an update of the Minecraft game or if Nintendo needs to issue another system update for the Switch. The Japanese video game maker just released a firmware update earlier this week. When exactly the update will be available is not announced.

Not all Switch gamers who got Minecraft have the issue of the accidental screenshots. 4J Studio's describes the issue as false screenshot button presses. There must be a unique constellation that causes this fake button presses, else all Switch users would be affected.

Nintendo only had a few issues with the launch of the Nintendo Switch. The biggest problem has been a faulty Joy-Con production discovered soon after launch on March 3.

The Nintendo Switch console continues to be a hard find, but there are options to find one in stock. ToysRUs restocks the Nintendo Switch on Friday in stores and there are four Nintendo Switch bundles on sale online.
