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.

Saber Interactive has spoken about supporting NBA Playgrounds going forward with multiple updates. On Switch, one of the big things we’re waiting on the ability to play online – which should be coming very soon.

In an interview with Just Pause, Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch also said that loading times are being improved. This is an issue for some on Switch, and loading takes the most time on Nintendo’s console than any other version. It should be addressed soon, as the team apparently improved the situation with the first upcoming update. Matt Karch
