After its release early last week, those who picked up Skullgirls 2nd Encore on Nintendo Switch were greeted both by one of my favorite fighting games of the last decade and an unfortunate handful of bugs not present on other platforms. Though their presence is regrettable, Skybound Games (who’s been handling the Switch port) have both informed us directly and made it known via Twitter that a patch has been submitted.

 

 
Pending certification, it could arrive as early as late next week. The focus would be on audio related issues with both character quotes playing multiple times over each other or at strange volumes, and the (currently completely absent) story mode cutscene voiceover. This should also return some absent color palette selections for much of the cast, though specifics weren’t given.

At this time they haven’t addressed some other concerns for the game, ranging from online performance to the game’s Switch menu icon, but if this potential quick patch turnaround is anything to go by, then the future could be bright for Skullgirls on Switch.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
