Spirittea SPECQUACKULAR update

Spirittea just issued a new “SPECQUACKULAR” update on Switch, bringing the game to version 1.6.6.

New content has been added, including ducks, a new shop vendor, and more. With all of the other changes as well, the Switch version is now in line with the PC release.

Here’s the full rundown of the new update:

Spirittea “SPECQUACKULAR” update version 1.6.6 patch notes

New Content

  • DUCKS! You’ll now be able to have cute, algae eating ducks in your bathhouse! 
  • You’ll find a brand new shop vendor called Ito who will have a few new things to sell! His truck will pass through town here and there, so be sure to keep an eye out!
  • You’ll notice new seasonal mechanics in the bathhouse! Depending on the season, you’ll find your baths filling up with algae, ice, and even fallen leaves! Keep the baths clean (with the help of the ducks!) to make room for your spirits! Maybe the new bathhouse heaters might help? Perhaps a net might help pick up those pesky leaves outside?
  • We gave Bruce some new animations!
  • We added a reticule to fishing, so now it’s even easier to see where the bobber will land and where exactly you’re fishing!
