Koji Igarashi and team’s spiritual successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is out now, and thankfully, it’s been worth the wait. But its launch hasn’t been without hiccups. The majority’s of the game’s audience seems to be on the Switch (which isn’t surprising, since indies and metroidvanias never fail to do well on the Switch)- which is unfortunate, because that particular version of the game is significantly worse than the others.

A lot of that is down to poor optimization and bugs, among other issues, and the developers had promised that they’ll be addressing these problems as soon as they can. Now, in a new Kickstarter update, they’ve detailed some of the improvements coming to Bloodstained’s Switch version, and when we can expect them. They’re targeting a release for the patch in the week of July 15th, and will be looking to address various issues. These include changing the marker button, improving the map scroll speed, improving the zoom in and zoom out function, auto-centering when opening up the map, and more. Take a look at the detailed notes below.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. You can check out our review of the game here.

Nintendo Switch (Status—fix being tested)

  • The fix is currently in test, the submission date we were working toward has been delayed due to a graphical bug that has reemerged.
  • We anticipate testing will be completed by next week, which would mean an ETA of public release during the week of July 15, 2019.
