Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.
The exact content of the update are unknown, but a large number of NEOGAF users are reporting improved framerates on both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. On Nintendo’s Switch, framerate stability appears to have been improved quite a lot with less frequent FPS drops in handheld mode. When running the game in docked mode, a nearly consistent framerate is said to be experienced.
On the Wii U, framerate has also been improved, but not as much as on the Switch. In general, it seems that framerates at all problem areas have been somewhat improved.
On YouTube, a comparison video has surfaced, comparing the game’s performance with patch 1.1.0 and patch 1.1.1. Check it out below:
