    1. Don’t hold your breath mate. Just saw some YouTube uploads of gameplay, there are now random loading sequences that happen in the middle of sprinting or other mundane elements of the game. Not a smooth gameplay mechanic, despite the upgrade to frame rate and resolution. Price is dropping tomorrow for Switch though.

      1. Yeah I’ve been playing since the patch. Sometimes it looks slightly better, sometimes it’s hard to tell. It needs more work for sure. Hopefully more patches to come. I hate to say it but if we get a switch pro eventually it could be optimized better. Still having fun, choppy buggy fun. I paid $60. Get it for $30
