What a mess. I'm glad I held off on backing or preordering the game on Switch.

I'm very curious if NL is going to review it anytime soon or wait until a patch is released. I think it's dishonest to hold off on releasing games due to fears of negative reviews. On the same token, I think it's unhelpful to wait to review games until they are patched.

We still don't have an idea of when updates are coming do we? Payday tomorrow and I'm considering stopping at the store on the way home to grab it

They don't really have a great incentive to rush to fix anything at this point. Thanks to the week delay, most review sites focuses on the Xbox/PS4/PC versions and gave the game glowing reviews. When the Switch version was released, the sites commented on its sorry state but didn't update any reviews to reflect it, so it wasn't very damaging. So really, what's the incentive to rush any patching on the Switch version? They have the Kickstarter backers' money. They are in the process of fulfillment for physical backers and the digital backers have an (inferior) copy of the game.

The sad reality of it all is that the Switch version always was and remains a very low priority to the developers. No amount of lame apologies will convince me otherwise. I was seriously considering getting this game but after PAX, decided to wait for reviews. I'm thankful I did. It's unlikely I will ever get it at this point. Why should I support a developer who throws out a half-assed port to fans eager for scrapes of Castlevania?

@Tsurii Something tells me that PC outsold the Switch version regardless, since PC runs the game like a dream compared to consoles. Regardless it's cool that we're getting better sales for a game on a Nintendo platform compared to others, but for such a compromised version... it doesn't sit well.

@OmegaDestroyer The other versions have random crash too and don't run too well. Yet it didn't hurt their reviews because they understand a small budget made with a new team can need some fixing patches after release since game testing is a very long and hard task. The Switch audience isn't corporate enough and can bash small budget games for small flaws even if they're good. The Switch audience really needs to lower their standards and fit with the other audience if they want good third party support.

After watching Digital Foundry video of RotN and played PS4 and Switch versions I could easily say:
Console versions of the game:

  • Xbox One X version is the best looking.
  • PS4 Pro version is the best all around both in visuals and performance.
  • The Switch version is the absolute garbage of this particular game unfortunately.

@Zuljaras I've played Bloodstained on all console platforms. Yeah the Switch is a massive downgrade (without taking into account the other bugs)

But I feel that when playing the game the PS4 Pro beats the Xbox One X version. There is just something about the water on the Xbox X makes it off. Something that the PS4 Pro doesn't have.

@GauBan Probably but I think that the PS4 version is 1080p and the Xbox One X is native 4K ?

Zuljaras

GauBan

@Zuljaras Yeah PS4 Pro runs at 1080p with up-scaling to 4K. Yeah the Xbox One X is trying to output 4K. A few parts seemed to drop below. But it still still working on the higher resolution.

So i actually ordered it this time and I'm not cancelling it ūüėĀ. I was going to play curse of the moon again but there's too much coming out to replay games I've beaten already.

Update incoming.

Lots of good stuff in here. A Switch patch expected on July 15 to reduce input lag, increase stability, and other things. Hope it works good. Currently on playthrough #3 on Nightmare Mode, which is still really fun. Cannot wait for Zangetsu Mode for even more reasons to dive back in.

So, I have finished Bloodstained Ritual of the Night on the Switch JUST from the cartridge (no updates) at 100% map and some of the best items.

I had 9 crashes in total for 11 hours of playtime. That is a lot.
There were slowdowns here and there but nothing major except for the Gremory fight. That slowdown there was bad.

All in all the game could be finished and enjoyed only from the cartridge (Lets say 20 years into the future) but the dev teams should be ashamed that they printed this on the cartridge.
