I downloaded the 1.3 patch, and while on call with my father for something else I was dicking around in the settings menu, looking at the manual. I was tapping stuff then noticed I stumbled upon the patch log. I looked through to see what was added in terms of content and how the balance was changed (as mentioned beforehand) but then I noticed the framerate was mentioned. I doubted it was 60fps but the visuals change to single player that was mentioned had me excited.

The call went on for a while so I opened a 4p game with bots to see what changed. IT WAS RUNNING AT A HIGHER FRAMERATE. But, as a downside the game does look worse (they definitely took an axe to the polygons).

I always thought people asking for a different framerate target were out of their minds.

I'm playing it, it decidely looks faster.

Unless it's some weird locked 30<x>60 framerate that I can't distinguish from 60 I have no idea what it could be other than 60fps.

I should clarify that it was just for 4 players, I'll check 8p mode now.

I'm glad they made the Story Mode a bit easier. I'm not usually one to complain about challenge, but some of those bosses were ridiculous.

I might pop this back in the Switch and play through it again.

Edit - Damn, this patch has a ton of positive changes. Nice job, Konami.

if you have an iPhone that does 120fps video you can take a video of the screen

I'm actually disappointed with myself, I wanted to beat the story on easy before the patch. Don't know why I installed it so quickly.

At least I beat world 4.

I just checked, I don't see a framerate setting within my camera so I don't trust it.

I'm not completely sold it's 60fps, but it's definitely feeling a hell of a lot smoother. Controls are much better than before... patch notes said that online should have less lag now, I think I'll check that out.

Given that free DLC in planned, I think Konami views this as a long-term title to support.
