Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes

505 Games and Rabbit & Bear Studios last week revealed a major Switch patch was on the way for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, and we've now got some more details about what to expect.

In a patch scheduled for "early June", the Switch version will receive "performance mode", "graphics mode", and "balanced mode" under the graphics setting options, along with Hotfixes 1.3 and 1.4.

This will then be followed by another patch targeting "mid-June" for all platforms including the Switch. This next update will come with stability improvements, solve some issues tied to graphics, include additional fixes, and much more.

Here's the full rundown, courtesy of the 505 Games support page:
