Now for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. Based on community feedback, developer Code Glue is working on a lot of bug fixes to smooth out the experience for players. Additionally several “quality of life” improvements from Re-Logic and 505 Games are being worked on right now. Some of the fixes suggested by the community are:

  • Now to able to deactivate pets
  • Chain gun accuracy fixed
  • Ice Queen no longer blocks everything else from spawning
  • Items from Angler are fixed
  • Orb projectiles sped up
  • Acorns don’t just grow on grass
  • Flowers in pots grow to full maturity
  • Tempest staff bugs fixed

brukrSpecifically for New Nintendo 3DS owners, the update will introduce the option to start larger game worlds that are in line with the “small” game world type from the PC version. Players, however, won’t be able to invite other players using an original Nintendo 3DS model since those obviously cannot run the larger game worlds. This New Nintendo 3DS enhancement will be part of the general update coming to the Nintendo 3DS version sometime later in 2016.

Now, 505 Games also included a small tease for the future of the game on Nintendo platforms in general with this little nugget right here:

By the time the next update rolls out on PS4/Xbox One we’ll be very close to the launch of NX… But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Why mention this at all? Well, we’ll let you go crazy with speculation. Enjoy.
