No patch notes were released with the announcement. The update not only handles epilepsy triggers, but also solves the visual glitches and other miscellaneous errors that have been plagued by a group of Sonic fans. According to reports, fast player characters will fall off the map and cause puzzling deaths, flashing multi-colored bars will be superimposed on the screen, disorienting the player and preventing them from surviving in some cases, causing intermittent crashes. Overall disappointment. Hope other Sonic Colors: Ultimate users can ease their frustration on consoles other than Switch.
Epilepsy triggers have been rampant in games for a long time, but recent news work – Especially those of Liana Ruppert – Bringing wider awareness to blatant neglect. Games like Balan’s Fantasy World have undergone large-scale updates to make the experience of a large number of players safer. If you are interested in learning more about triggers, tips when playing potential trigger games, and ideas for a future that is friendly to people with epilepsy, please read Ruppert’s informative epilepsy game guide.
