Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have only been out for a few weeks, but Nintendo is already aiming to improve the games’ poor technical performance. After complaints from nearly everyone about the game’s inconsistent framerate and other technical issues, Nintendo said Thursday it’s working on fixes for some of the games’ biggest issues and will release an update at future which will hopefully improve performance.
The update on the publisher’s plans for the game came with a posting short patch notes which includes the start of Season 1 of Ranked Battles in the Battle Stadium. The patch also addresses an issue that caused music to not play properly in battles with the Elite Four and Top Champion, as well as other bugs not listed.
More importantly, the patch notes include a note from Nintendo on the game’s performance:
We are aware that players may experience issues that affect game performance. Our goal is always to give players a positive experience with our games, and we apologize for any inconvenience. We take player feedback seriously and work to improve the games.
While that doesn’t mean much, it does at least give some reassurance that Nintendo is looking into the issues and looking for a fix of one kind or another. Another detail that wasn’t part of the patch notes was the time it takes to implement these solutions, but an acknowledgment is better than nothing. Unfortunately, whether or not these changes resolve the full extent of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet‘s problems, or whether or not it’s even possible is something that remains to be seen.
