Bloodstained dev shares latest Switch news, version 1.02 incoming and patch notes shared

Posted on August 1, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

The Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night team issued the latest news about the Switch version today. Improvements are still and the works, and help is also being provided by WayForward as well as Epic/Unreal.

A 1.02 balance update should be live on Switch very soon, if not already. You can find the full patch notes below, along with the full status report on Bloodstained.

As mentioned above, we have moved resources around to give priority to Switch performance improvements. This includes additional resources from WayForward as well as assistance from the Epic/Unreal team. It’s a slow process, and we apologize for the delay. When we do push out optimizations, we want it to be worth the wait.

This doesn’t mean every single person on the team is typing away on Switch code, but it is currently getting the bulk of dev time.

Initially we had planned to release a number of small updates to give incremental improvements. After looking at what needs to be accomplished, our goal is to bundle performance improvements into (likely) one patch. Doing so eases the submission process and will result in an overall faster completion. Since this is still in development, we don’t have a firm ETA. We will update everyone when we have a more concrete release window.

But there is a smaller Switch update happening today!

Update 1.02 is being pushed live right now and will be available for download any minute. This update includes:
