Fe could be getting a patch on Switch to address the game’s performance issues. Specifically, Zoink is now looking into the frame rate to see how it can be improved.
At the very least, an update should be coming for Fe that tackles crashes. The team came across one crash in particular and intends to have a patch ready as soon as possible.
Zoink passed along the following to one fan about Fe’s performance on Switch:

System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: February 16, 2018
Publisher: EA Originals
It’s is a little bit of a platformer, a little bit of a puzzle game, and a little bit of an art piece. At its heart Fe is a game about communication. It’s easy to locate among the lineage of games that are notable for pushing stories that only an interactive medium can tell: Another World, Ico, and Journey, as three pivotal entries in that genealogy. With its stylized low-poly aesthetic, soothing cello carried soundscape, and wimpy little fox character Fe feels like a game that is content being placed under the larger context of games that have been bolder and newer than it. For what it is, Fe is good. Scattered throughout its eight hour run time are a few really effective and awe-inspiring moments but even these glimpses of inspiration feel complacent in the shadows of earlier prospects.

A new rating for Stick It to The Man on Switch has been added to PEGI’s database. It’s a sign that the game is getting a physical release, especially since Rising Star Games is listed as its publisher.
Something similar happened with SteamWorld Dig 2 on Switch. After we spotted a new rating for that title, which also listed Rising Star Games as publisher, a physical version was announced soon after. The same situation appears to be happening with Stick It to The Man.
