The Nintendo Switch Performance Patch Is Here!

And it has a few extra treats we have not mentioned before! Hold on tight, these will later come to all the other platforms with the Shadow Surge update as well.

  • You can now smash from the ground if you jump on the same frame
  • You can also double jump on the first frame of a smash
  • Latch’s special has an extra angle:
    hold down-forward to release the ball in a new direction
  • You no longer need to crouch for performing a grounded Switchflip,
    just hold down
  • You can now turn in the air while holding up
  • Fixed Candyman not getting hit on a re-candy parry grab
  • Disallowed parry after a grab is countered
  • Made certain outfits a bit cheaper
  • Jet and Doombox are no longer swapped
    when backing out of their showcase
  • You can now configure a fourth controller in the input options

Lethal League Blaze at Heat Wave 3

We are sponsoring the tournament at Heat Wave 3 in Arizona this weekend with $300, which brings the total pot bonus up to $400!

At the time of writing, sign ups are at 33 players. That makes this the second largest local Lethal League Blaze tournament after stunfest!

If you cannot make it there yourself, the live stream is scheduled for
5 PM MST on Saturday October 19 at twitch.tv/azrivalsofaether
with Dair Productions casting it.

The Nintendo Switch patch goes live on October 16!

We have reworked all character models and stages, tweaked visuals and drove over the code with a bulldozer a couple of times to vastly improve performance on Nintendo Switch in both docked and handheld mode. A 1v1 matchmaking mode is added for the competitively minded among a myriad of other fixes. Here’s the full list:

  • Improved performance
  • Added 1v1 online mode
  • Fixed certain un-unlockable outfits
  • Fixed memory leaks
  • Higher resolution for docked mode
  • Correct system language on first start
  • Character model fixes
  • Fixed unnecessary server logouts

Tokyo Game Show trip

Part of the team just returned from a trip to Japan. Showing Blaze at Tokyo Game Show and being there while the boxed version released in stores was a blast! Turns out that the Japanese fans are just as hyped up as the fans from everywhere else. The team got showered with gifts, hosted a tournament at the Dutch Embassy, did interviews and had an idol group play our game (peak Japanese right there). We even bought our own game too!

Physical releases are still pretty relevant in the land of the rising sun and Dion has never hidden the fact that he gets a lot of inspiration from Japanese creators. For these reasons it made sense to do a Japan-exclusive special edition for Switch and PS4. However, since the language can be switched ingame and they’re both region free, you can still buy the box from abroad, get the goodies and play it as you would normally. It contains the game, a sticker, an artbooklet and a little Candyman keychain. I’d say it’s a must for collectors.

The Shadow Surge

This other upcoming uptown update will bring along the optimizations from the Nintendo Switch patch WITH of course the boyest of boys, Dust & Ashes. They will, like the rest of the cast, have alternate outfits to unlock and we’re happy to tease one of them today!

Voice Actor audition and Posters

Are you into voice acting? Do you know a cat who’s into voice acting? We’ve decided to do open auditions for the latest Blaze character, Dust. This is the chance to get involved with the Lethal League! The info to enter can be found here.

Keep in mind, you’re required to have a decent recording mic. But it IS a paid gig. So give it a shot if you have the conviction and the gear! The deadline is 5 September.

Poster Deal

We were pretty blown away at the response, turns out we sold out in 2 hours! We might have to consider a second batch if that many people missed out on it. In any case, we’re preparing to send them out so HANG TIGHT. BTW If you want to have your poster signed, send a quick DM with your info to @RemmersTim

Dust and Ashes character reveal

Well well, look who decided to show up…

Straight from the hereafter, it’s Dust & Ashes

Sentenced to death and hanged. In his final moment he was hit by lightning. The word ‘Dust’ echoed in his mind as he was thrown into a state of limbo between life and death. His shadow was split from his body and turned into an entity called Ashes. Dust carries with him a watch that stopped on the exact time of his execution.

The Shadow Surge Update

The boyos are not fully assembled yet, so you’ll have to wait for the ‘Shadow Surge’ update to drop before you can start playing with them. We’ll be showing more stuff that we’ll add in that update in the coming weeks. This will include the changes and optimizations we made for the console version of the game, which means the game will run better on Steam as well (but we have a good hunch that existing mods will break and need a workaround).

Speaking of consoles, when can they expect the Shadow Surge update? Due to the strict patching guidelines on game consoles it won’t be simultaneous. The Nintendo Switch version is still scheduled to get the optimizations patch first after all!
