Well, this is strange. Usually, an update is supposed to add features and fix bugs, but the latest update for NBA 2K18 on Switch has actually removed a feature: the ability to capture screenshots.
A Redditor by the name of ‘KAG_21’ noticed the functionality was missing after their game updated to the latest version: 1.07. Understandably confused, they reached out to the developers at 2K to get to the bottom of the issue. It turns out that this wasn’t a glitch, but a deliberate move from 2K. An email was sent to KAG_21, explaining vaguely that the feature has been removed due to a “new Nintendo policy”. Here’s a screenshot of that email:
As you can see, the functionality was also stripped from WWE 2K18. It’s still a mystery as to what this new policy from Nintendo could be. Some users who responded to this Reddit thread theorized that this could be a matter of licensing issues. We’ll have to wait and see if the situation develops any further.
