1.03 Update Released for Switch Version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Improves Graphics and Performance

Publisher 505 Games and developer ArtPlay have released an update for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

The new 1.03 update has been released for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, and it brings with it graphics and performance improvements. You can find a trailer for the update above.

Here’s a rundown on the update:

Switch Graphics and Performance Update

There are four areas of improvement in version 1.03: input lag, visual quality, crashes, and load times.

First off, input lag has been eliminated throughout the game. You will find the controls more responsive, making the game easier to navigate and enemies easier to fight. There are still a few areas that need optimizing that will be included in update 1.04.

Visual quality has been improved so things look more clear and have more detail. Some examples below:

Overall stability has been improved throughout the game. We have addressed several specific situations that have been causing crashes, most notably when reading books from a bookcase.

Loading times have been reduced significantly, by up to 70% but there are still areas we’d like to improve. We will keep working to improve this on a room-by-room basis.

Even more improvements are coming in update 1.04, so keep an eye on the news for that announcement!

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is out now on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we highly recommend it!).
