Brawlout patch to address lag issues will be submitted 'in less than a week'


Matchmaking improvements also en route

Party-fighter Brawlout recently hit the Nintendo Switch and achieved an impressive opening, attracting over 50,000 players in its first two weeks. However, there have been some issues with the game's online mode, ones that developers Angry Mob will address soon.

Some players have been complaining of annoying latency issues when fighting online, while others have also had problems with matchmaking, with the game not aligning players to their selected regions.

However, Angry Mob Games have said on Twitter that they have had developers working over the Holidays to stamp out these bugs, along with a few others, and have a patch almost ready for submission to Nintendo. Once approved, the update can be expected shortly thereafter.

Brawlout is available now on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
