Voiced Segments in the menus are skippable? So this means no more waiting for character to speak during merc missions right?

I went to play yesterday and noticed this immediately. It prompted me to check the game version to find out it had just updated. Minor change, but great for quality of life.

So no performance fix for the docked version?!

Does docked mode have some issues? I have put 40 hours into the game but only in handheld mode so I'd like to see a slight performance boost for handheld mode if possible.

Oh sorry, Of course I meant handheld mode. No, as far as I know the docked mode was running fine.

That's what I'm saying. There's no reason we should be skipping frames and going below 720p when "X" ran as well as it did on the Wii U. I realize that they've made improvements to the lighting, textures, pop-in, etc. but it's not a big enough difference to cancel out the added juice of the Switch.

MK8 went from 720p59 to 1080p60... "XC2" should be able to hold 720p30 when docked.

They need a patch for the voice acting. Ugh.

There was a patch for the voice acting, it's called downloading the Japanese language track!

No, I just want English voice actors that take their jobs seriously.
