Spiritfarer

Spiritfarer has been updated on Switch, bringing the game to version 1.2. It primarily addresses a number of issues, but also includes additional language support.

Below are the full patch notes:

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast we’re catching up on several recent releases. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a mixed bag, Giraffe and Annika a charming little adventure, Sentinels of Freedom has highs and lows, and Spiritfarer is a character-driven delight. Then… the Nintendo Direct Mini. Neither Oni Dino nor Galen really cared about the games in the showcase, but that’s totally fine. Being disappointed is fine—we move on and play all the games that are already out or releasing soon. Those who are genuinely upset? That’s behavior that players should identify within themselves and reevaluate how they interact with entertainment media.
