Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is available on Switch right now, and complaints are popping up online about issues with visuals, controls, and more. Is there any merit to these complaints? I offer up Switch gameplay footage and impressions from my time so far.

Check out Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's input lag on Switch compared to the PC version

No, you're not imagining things

No, you are not crazy. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has some serious input lag on the Switch version. If you've been feeling like you're a bit off, you now have an actual excuse. The video above is a perfect example of just how severe the input lag is on Switch.
