Today’s Indie news: Snake Pass to get Time Trials on Nintendo Switch, but also…
- Vroom in the night sky
Snake Pass was released on Wednesday on Nintendo Switch, in Europe and North America. Less than two days later, it received a first patch, fixing various issues reported by users (including one impacting HD Rumble). And it turns out that the game is going to get another patch in the future, which will be more substantial than the first one.
That patch will add a feature that’s not available in the Nintendo Switch version of the game right now: Time Trials. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen overnight, as adding is apparently not as straightforward as you’d think.
Here’s the message in full from the Lead Designer:
My name’s Brad and I’m a design lead on Snake Pass here at Sumo.
I thought I’d out myself to pass on some good news; I can confirm that we’re working on getting Time Trials patched in to the Switch version of the game. I can’t tell you exactly when this is going to happen, it’s not quite as simple as flicking a switch, there is some work on our end involved on getting this up and running. As soon as I have more news I’ll be sure to pass it on.
Really happy to see so many people enjoying the game!
Remember that mysterious black and white game Ratalaika Games teased a few weeks ago? Well, turns out it’s called 0000! If you’re curious about it, here’s the Steam Greenlight trailer for it:
Also, if you’ve been wondering about the content update for Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, it looks like it could be released in two weeks… fingers crossed!
