My Time at Sandrock Releases Big New Update on Switch


  • Nintendo Switch users can now enjoy a smoother gaming experience with the latest update for My Time at Sandrock, addressing performance and visual bugs.
  • The “New Year Better Me” update brings customization items, a roguelike dungeon, a factory queue system, and visual improvements to the game.
  • Despite initial issues on the Switch, My Time at Sandrock aims to redeem itself with constant updates, offering engaging gameplay and impressive graphics.

My Time at Sandrock has just rolled out a big new update for the Nintendo Switch version. This patch adds various contents promised since the Kickstarter funding campaign and also fixes performance and visual bugs in the Nintendo Switch version of My Time at Sandrock.

Since My Time at Sandrock was released in 2023, the game has faced several issues in performance and visuals on the Switch, which prompted the release of many patches to address these issues on the Nintendo console. For example, the February update for My Time at Sandrock fixed various bugs and problems that caused the game to freeze at certain quests, among other issues, such as houses disappearing in thin air and the social relationship UI bug that didn’t allow players to scroll down the screen.


All Mount Types In My Time at Sandrock, Ranked

In My Time at Sandrock there are a few options for mounts. Each offers different benefits.

Pathea Games announced the release of the “New Year Better Me” update, which promises to add a lot of content and also improve the performance and visuals of My Time at Sandrock on the Nintendo Switch. Among the additions are customization items created by Kickstarter backers, an untried roguelike endgame dungeon, a new letter system, a dynamic factory queue system, and the long-desired visual performance and FPS Boost update on the Nintendo Switch. While “New Year Better Me” was released on other platforms in December 2023, the patch is only being released on the Nintendo Switch now.

After its release, My Time at Sandrock topped sales charts in the United States and the United Kingdom. The game scored 80 on Metacritic on both PC and PlayStation 5 but stayed around 60 on the Nintendo Switch due to its performance issues and bugs. Although My Time at Sandrock meets the standards of Stardew Valley, its weak port to the Nintendo handheld has alienated a portion of the audience.

However, since its launch date, the developer Pathea Games has been trying to redeem itself and constantly releases new updates for the Nintendo Switch version of My Time at Sandrock. The game is not only one of the most competent farming simulators in the industry, with an immense amount of content to be explored, but it is also one of the life sim games with the best graphics. However, if the framerate stutters or the game simply freezes, it becomes underappreciated despite its best efforts.
