The online action-RPG Dauntless has received its first update on Switch following last week’s launch. Login loading time has been reduced, and numerous fixes have been implemented.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Hello my beautiful indie darlings. This week on NEP, join Oni Dino and Karen on some big topics! We’re talking The Game Awards: is it really a good celebration of video games? Is it really the biggest night in gaming? We also discuss the Nindie Showcase from earlier this week (including weighing in on the Gleamlight backlash)—Reggie says it best: indies are the most important in the industry! We also chat Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Oni Dino has tips for the newly released, unconventional JRPG, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

While Phoenix Labs is working to bring Dauntless to Switch, we now know that it’s not being done entirely in-house. According to the studio’s Chris Fox, Iron Galaxy is also involved.

Phoenix Labs has produced a new Dauntless trailer that highlights the new Switch version as well as the reveal of Winterhorn Skraev. Check it out below.

Plenty of Switch gameplay of Dauntless was shown during a segment from today’s Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 stream. Have a look at the recording below.

At E3 2019 this week, Dauntless is playable for the first time on Switch. Have a look at some off-screen footage below.
