Snake Pass was one of the earlier games to hit the eShop last year. By all accounts, the title did very well. Thanks to Snake Pass’ success, Sumo Digital is sticking with the concept – and it looks like we can expect something early this year.

Sumo tweeted the following earlier today:

Sumo Digital introduced a new Snake Pass update late last month. It was a pretty substantial one, adding in Time Trials and leaderboards on Switch. However, that pesky rumble bug was brought back with the patch.

On the bright side, Sumo has been quick to address the situation. Another Snake Pass update is now available, bringing the game to version 1.2.1. You should notice that the rumble issues have once again been addressed.

Sumo Digital isn’t done with Snake Pass. In July, the studio will release the first DLC for the game.

Those who have yet to purchase Snake Pass may want to take advantage of a new discount. It’ll be 40 percent off until July 4.

Here’s a video teasing Snake Pass’ upcoming DLC and announcing the sale:

Sumo Digital introduced Time Trials and leaderboards to the Switch version of Snake Pass this week with version 1.2. However, players quickly began to notice an issue with the Joy-Con. After applying the patch, the controllers have a tendency to rumble excessively.

The good news is that Sumo already identified the problem and has a fix in the works. Another update should be distributed soon.

Sumo wrote on its website:

“As many of you know, on Wednesday Snake Pass Update 1.2 was released across all platforms. Whilst there’s been plenty of incredible feedback we also aware that some of you have had some issues with the update. Most notably we’re aware that a number of users on the Nintendo Switch have been experience excessive rumbling of the Joy-Con controllers. We just wanted to let you all known in an official capacity that this is an issue we’re very aware of. You’ll be thrilled to know that we’ve identified the issue that is causing this problem and are working as quickly as possible to get a hotfix out to resolve it as soon as we possibly can.

We apologies for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding with this matter. Hold on tight!”
