Great news Snake Pass fans, a new update for our beloved game has rolled out and Sumo Digital has seen to it to provide patch notes, but before we do share what has been added and changed, there is trouble afoot.

Due to a mistake, for anyone who gets the update on Switch, prepare to run into an old foe as the rumble issue we had previously is back, but Sumo Digital are aware of it and are working on a fix. Snake Pass also has a new icon thanks to the update and it’s not being as warmly accepted as it could have been.


And now because we’ve kept you waiting on the patch notes long enough, here they are, followed by a video and an image of how the news of Time Trials and Leaderboards coming to Snake Pass was revealed in the news section of the Nintendo Switch:

Sadly though, there have been no improvements to the undocked visuals of Snake Pass on Switch, but then Sumo Digital did previously state they have no plans to do so. Snake Pass is however a really great game, so don’t let this deter you from giving it a go if you haven’t previously.
