dead cells switch update

Dead Cells has received a new update on Switch, bringing the game up to version 1.17.2. While this is not a content-focused update, the patch notes are still fairly lengthy. With version 1.17.2, the team behind the game has fixed up bugs, made a few quality of life changes, and made a few balancing changes. You can read the full patch notes for the update below.

Balancing

  • Decreased the Servants‘ HP.
  • Increased the Queen‘s HP
  • Armored Shrimps no longer take damage from spikes.
  • Bladed Tonfas rework. Damage no longer scales on speed. The first attack always jumps forward, with subsequent attacks always critting if the first one hit. Please note that we will only be able to change the description in the next major update, sorry about that.
