Dave The Diver developer MINTROCKET has released a fresh hotfix for 2023's deep-sea darling, and it looks like it's reeling in a net full of bugs.

This latest update brings the game on Switch up to ver. and while it might not be the content-adding behemoths that we are used to seeing whenever Dave and co. catch another DLC expansion, it's nice to see that the devs are focusing on getting things as bug-free as possible.

The full patch notes were shared on a Nexon forum and we have gathered them together for you to check out below.
