Hey Battle Chefs! Thanks so much for all the kind tweets, comments, and emails :) We’re excited to keep updating Battle Chef Brigade for you! For Patch 1, we focused on bug fixes along with a few general improvements. This Switch Patch means that the Steam and Switch versions now match. That’s our goal moving forward as well! Read on for the full list of improvements to the Nintendo Switch version:
- Add option to Reset to the pause menu during duels.
- Allow gems in Restaurant mode customer requests to animate for better colorblind accessibility.
- Don’t cull items that aren’t physics-sleeping (would result in ingredients suspending in air off-screen until the player moved close to the items again).
- Make Leave Job and Leave Practice Kitchen button consistent.
- Don’t respawn Thrash if he dies in the Yoku hunt. Prompt the player to retry immediately.
Display and UI
- Fix monster tint issue when off-screen as fire/cold wears off.
- Outline player chef names in judgment screen so that they’re more legible.

- Increase points required for Daily Cook-Off rankups.
- Add Trash Can to Practice Kitchen so that table crowding doesn’t force the player to leave.

- Fix gameplay failing to pause if the user navigated to the home menu.
