Stardew Valley on Nintendo Switch has been a runaway success for Chucklefish and ConcernedApe, so its no surprise that the dev has been hard at work making sure to squash the bugs found by players. This latest patch also addresses the long load times that fans have complained about on the Nintendo Switch version.
Here’s a peek at the full patch notes below.
- Players should see a significant improvement on save times! Also, the saving screen is now animated.
- The new video recording feature is now supported!
- When a controller connects or disconnects, the Controller Support Applet now appears to ask which controller you want to use to play the game, instead of silently switching to the new controller.
- The game now detects Simplified / Traditional Chinese environments on first start up and defaults to the Simplified Chinese localisation instead of English.
- Fixed issue that created the unintended ability to skip saving at night with a well-timed button press.
