Deadly Premonition 2’s latest patch, 1.0.3, looks to have addressed the more egregious issues plaguing the sequel’s framerate, especially when players are taking their characters outdoors.
“Holy sh-t the frame rate outdoors is night and day,” said a Reddit thread which publicised that patch 1.0.3 is now available (thanks, MyNintendoNews). “It’s so much better now. I still get micro stutters outside but the frame rate itself is so much better. Anyone else noticing anything else?”
“Definitely an improvement though performance and load times are still what some people might call inexcusably poor,” replied another player. “It’s playable now though! I’ve been waiting for a patch like this to continue my playthrough, so I’m excited to dive back in.”
