NBA 2K18 Update 1.03 is a big upgrade for Switch

NBA 2K18 is up to version 1.03 and according to some users, significantly improves the quality and stability on Switch.

Many cite that NBA 2K18 runs more smoothly in handheld, as well as managing to take up less space. The game now takes 3GB on the system and weighs in at 26GB total.

Some have even suggested that the battery lasts longer when in handheld mode and apparently runs just as well docked. The performance has also improved in the cut-scenes.

Here’s the full changelog. Let us know if you’ve noticed the improvements in the game.

– Fixed a case where game framerate would drop for the remainder of the game following a called timeout.
