Sports Story gets a performance boost with new patch
Sidebar Games, the creators of Sports Story, have released an update to address the Nintendo Switch exclusive’s performance difficulties and game-breaking flaws. The sequel to Golf Story, one of the year’s best independent games, has been coming long. However, when Sports Story was released, gamers were eager to point out that it required additional development time. Sports Story debuted with major performance concerns and roadblocks to advancement. At the very least, Sidebar Games is working hard to enhance Sports Story.
Sports Story debuted on the Nintendo Switch without fanfare on December 23. Frustrations with the game’s technical faults were immediate, with Sidebar Games confirming on December 24 that a patch to solve “certain bugs” was in the works. Sidebar Games said on December 31 that their Sports Story update was complete but needed Nintendo’s approval. It took some time to get the Sports Story update ready for release.
