Believe it or not, but Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is actually quite a good game on the Switch. If you played this version on release, you might not have been so impressed with the shoddy performance, frame rate issues, weaker assets and extensive loading times. Since then, however, 505 Games has rolled out multiple patches to improve the overall experience.

The latest update (version 1.04) is a minor one compared to some of the previous patches but is still very much appreciated. It resolves stability issues, fixes a dialogue issue, includes some animation performance improvements and contains some general bug fixes.

-Stability issues, such as crashes experienced while interacting with bookcases.
-Fixed an issue with corruption during dialogue which could lead to crash
-Some Performance improvements related to animations
-General Bug Fixing

505 also mentioned it would keep working on performance improvements for the Switch and explained how this latest update made the Switch version "nearly identical" to the other platforms, in terms of content:

While we will continue to work on overall performance improvements for Switch, this update brings the game’s platforms to a nearly identical state for content. This is an important step leading into the upcoming Zangetsu release, which we will talk more about in the near future.
