Nintendo warns gamers that Switch may not endure Japan's summer heat
Kyoto-based Nintendo warned gamers via a tweet on using their Switch in environments where the temperature is above 35 degrees Celsius as several parts of Japan are experiencing 35-degree-plus heat this summer.
Additionally, Nintendo reminded gamers to check that the unit’s air intake and exhaust are clean and unobstructed since blockages can increase the Switch’s running temperature and bring it up closer to the 35-degree limit.
Nintendo advises sweeping the intake/exhaust ports to clear them out if they are beginning to get blocked with dust.
The company advises users who play with their Switch when docked to keep the dock somewhere with good airflow and that won't become too warm; ideally, this should be away from any windows that allow direct sunlight to enter.
Thankfully, Nintendo adds that the Switch may automatically enter sleep mode if it becomes too hot, acting as a sort of built-in safeguard against overheating.
