According to the post, the update on Switch will arrive at the same time as other platforms, featuring all the same content that was updated on the other consoles.
Players can expect a slew of tweaks, changes, and game improvements – including the return of Bandit, a character that hasn’t been seen since the first Risk Of Rain.
The character has received a few tweaks to provide a better fit with the current sequel.

For as long as he can remember, Charlie has always been interested in computers and gaming. It all started with the Sega Mega Drive and then evolved into PC gaming in his early teens. CS 1.6 was his first go at competitive gaming which soon evolved into CS:Source and now CS:GO - a game that he still plays (almost exclusively) today. Throughout that period he has also been a keen PC builder and enthusiast - dedicating a large portion of his time to the craft. My current rig is an ASUS 5700XT with AMD's Ryzen 3600X.
