The Nintendo Switch Online app has received an update – at least on iOS. Version 1.5.1 implements the latest bug fixes. Nothing else is mentioned beyond that.

The update isn’t up on Android at this time, but it’ll presumably be issued to users on those devices soon.

Bishop Games is now distributing a new Lost Worlds Edition update for Light Fall. It adds secret levels to be unlocked in every Act of the game (which can be found in the Speedrun Mode), quality of life improvements, and a new Speedrun season.

Below are the full patch notes:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

When Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was playable at PAX East 2019, some concern came about after fans went hands-on with the Switch build. Based on what was at the event, the game just didn’t run as well as it could.

505 Games has now shed light on what happened. Switch units at the show apparently overheated, which “caused the game to drop frames and not run as smoothly as we would have liked.” The same build as well as future builds have been “much more stable when the console isn’t overheated.” Continued optimizations have also taken place.

Two new Pokemon are joining the Build-A-Bear line. Starting tomorrow, consumers can get their hands on new plushies featuring Psyduck and Snubbull.
