The Sexy Brutale has received yet another update on Switch, bringing the game to version 1.0.5. The latest patch finally brings significant improvements to the table. Among other things, resolution has been increased for both docked and portable play.

Tequilla Works isn’t finished with the Switch version of The Sexy Brutale. The team is now looking to improve loading times, which should be addressed in a future update.

The Sexy Brutale has been updated on Switch, bringing the game up to version 1.0.4. Tequilla Works hasn’t commented on the latest patch, but we should have a decent idea as to what it does.

Tequilla Works has previously said that an update was in the works to improve performance and resolution when docked and playing in portable mode, to solve some freezing issues, and to fix some text strings. This was intended to be addressed with version 1.0.3, which was pulled soon after going live due to its ineffectiveness. We assume that the original planned improvements are finally live, but we’ll let you know if Tequilla Works commented on the new update officially.


With the new 1.0.2 update for Rime arriving on Switch today, we’re able to see just how improved the game is compared to its original release. Get a look at a comparison video comparing the two versions below.

Update (2/19): Rime version 1.0.2 is out now.

Original (2/16): Rime’s big Switch update has been approved, and it’s arriving in just a few days. Grey Box announced today that the patch will land on February 19.

While “volume streaming hiccups” couldn’t be addressed, significant improvements have been made across the board with the game’s visuals and performance, “especially in handheld mode.” Rime on Switch will feature an enhanced resolution, more stable frame rate, and much more.

Here’s the full message from Grey Box about Rime on Switch, including an offer for a small Dreadnought PC bundle, full patch notes, and comparisons.

The Sexy Brutale was updated on Switch last week to version 1.3.0. Unfortunately, this patch has now been pulled due to its ineffectiveness.

Tequilla Works said on Twitter that the update is not improving the situation with The Sexy Brutale’s resolution as was intended. Due to this, it has been taken down. Tequilla Works is now “looking at submitting a new one that improves the game.”


Tequilla Works has confirmed that a new update has gone live for The Sexy Brutale on Switch. In both North America and Europe, version 1.3.0 has started distribution.

We don’t have any patch notes at present, but we would guess that the new patch improves performance. We’ll report back with any concrete findings.


The developers behind Rime are still trying to get the Switch version in order. A meaty patch remains in the pipeline, and the team shared a status update today.

The new update is currently in Nintendo’s hands for approval. Things can now either go in one of two ways. Either Nintendo approves it, or denies it. The latter could potentially happen since the update “is larger than normally permitted”.

Tequilla Works posted a new developer diary for The Sexy Brutale, a game that recently made its way to Switch. The first video below features the studio at Gamescom 2016.

The general reception for Rime has been positive, but the Switch version specifically could use some work. From a technical perspective, the game could run better with an improved frame rate and resolution.

Thankfully, the team is aware of the “hitches” players have reported on Switch and are investigating the issues. A post on the official forums states that “some aspects of the game are beyond a patch-level fix, but there are changes that can be made to improve some elements.” Currently the plan is to update players on the direction the developer will be taking in January.
