Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - Switch Release Update


Dec 25, 2018
We have been listening to the feedback regarding Switch performance. Our goal is for everyone, regardless of platform, to be able to enjoy the game and have it run smoothly. We want to live up to your, and our, expectations.

Throughout the QA process we have been addressing performance issues in the game. Update 1.01 was published to Switch prior to launch to add content and improve performance. It did not accomplish as much as we had hoped and we need to do more.

To address the concerns brought up by the community we are immediately shifting resources to improve performance and stability for the Switch. You can expect a number of small updates that will improve different areas of the game rather than waiting longer for one big update. We will have more details as we dive into the work.

We thank you for your patience and apologize for the inconvenience.

I find it hard to believe they let so many issues launch on the Switch, they must have had to force its launch.

I agree. I just watch the Digital Foundry analysis and it’s clear they didn’t take care of the Switch version.

I won’t buy it on the Switch until they patched it big time. Too many issues.
