Speaking during a podcast last month, tinyBuild’s Alex Nichiporchik suggested that Phantom Trigger was being made for Switch. Today, that was made official.

Phantom Trigger, “a hardcore neon slasher with RPG and roguelike elements,” will be on Switch this summer. Have a look at the announcement video below.

Mr. Shifty publisher tinyBuild has some sort of Switch announcement in store. On Twitter, the company teased “exciting” news that will be shared “very soon”.

The tweet in question is below:


It’s unclear what exactly tinyBuild is teasing, but we’re hoping for a new Switch game announcement of some sort.

tinyBuild has been hard at work on a patch for Mr. Shifty. Once released, it should improve the game’s performance – specifically frame rate. The team was hoping to have it ready this week, but it’s taking a bit longer than expected.

tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik said today that the “patch is simply too big. This is because the Unity plugin we’re using for export is brand new, and tends to package in a bit too many unnecessary information, bloating the size.” tinyBuild is now working with Unity to address this as well as reduce the overall size of Mr. Shifty on Switch.

When we have more news to report about the patch, we’ll let you know.

Mr. Shifty’s patch on Switch isn’t too far off. According to tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik, it will be submitted for Nintendo approval soon. The entire process is expected to take about two weeks.

Nichiporchik said:

“Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that we were going to submit the Mr. Shifty patch this week, but due to next week being Gold Week, it wouldn’t matter as there are delays with submissions due to it. So we expect to submit the patch by end of week, and release the week after next. So in 2 weeks. It’s looking pretty good.”

The patch prepared for Mr. Shifty should mainly improve performance. It should improve issues with frame rate drops that players have been experiencing.

Mr. Shifty may be just the start of tinyBuild’s plans for Switch. Speaking during the latest episode of a Russian podcast that roughly goes by the name How Games are Made, tinyBuild’s Alex Nichiporchik said that Phantom Trigger is in the porting process.

Phantom Trigger is said to be “a hardcore neon slasher with RPG and roguelike elements.” It’ll have a deep combat system with combo unlocks and weapon upgrades, handcrafted levels blended together “with procedural roguelike-style dungeons”, a branching story with various endings to encounter, and more.

Phantom Trigger is tentatively planned for this summer. It’s unclear if the Switch version would arrive at the same time. For a look at the game, watch the trailer below.

Mr. Shifty will soon be receiving a patch to improve the game’s performance. Once applied, it should address frame stutter and slowdowns that players are experiencing on Switch. Check out the video below for a look at how the upcoming update enhances the frame rate.

Our video coverage of Mr. Shifty has mostly come to an end, but we’re sharing one last, lengthy gameplay video. Watch an hour of footage below.

Mr. Shifty made it to Switch today. The game itself has been fairly well received, but some players have been reporting issues with the frame rate, which can be irregular at times.

After some confusion surrounding the situation, tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik has promised to personally oversee “the patch submission process”. When an update is made available, players should hopefully find an improvement with the frame rate.

Nichiporchik went in-depth about bringing Mr. Shifty to Switch in a Reddit post:
