Snake Pass on Switch Gets Time Trials and Leaderboards

Sumo Digital’s charming physics-based platformer, Snake Pass, arrived on a whole host of formats earlier this year. The Nintendo Switch version, however, was missing two considerable components; Time Trials and Leaderboards.

Well, Switch players no longer need to feel left out, as a patch has just been released for Snake Pass that will finally allow them to speed through levels as Noodle the Snake and Doodle the hummingbird before showing off to their mates when they’ve put in a seriously good time. It’s not just Switch owners that are privy to a Snake Pass patch though – Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC gamers are getting one too.

Fixing a bunch of minor niggles and improving the gameplay in various ways, Snake Pass’ new patch makes the game better than ever before, and we quite liked it prior to any of these improvements.

The full patch notes for Snake Pass 1.2.0 can be found below:
