Super Bomberman R patched to 1.3: 60fps, story mode camera changes, lag improved, etc

#1
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.

lol you're going to have to source this one op

cool if so but... proof please
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.

do you have a phone that has a >60fps camera?

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'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.
