After having finally saved up enough jet fuel, the intergalactic journey of the ‘toads has brought them to Steam! After all that space travel, they’re just dying to get out and stretch their frog legs. Oh, that’s right. We’re very excited to announce that you can now brawl with the best of them!

Specter of Torment
  • Fix: Curio Upgrade menu can now be advanced with the Start button, similar to other menus that don’t use Start for another action.
  • Fix: Using Cold Shoulder after a certain dancing scene would pause the animation (the coldest of shoulders).

  • Fix: Reize would appear incorrectly when defeated mid-teleport.
  • Fix: Plague Knight would sometimes appear without contact damage active after a teleport.
  • Fix: Performing a unique pose in a certain armor set is now duplicated by Blood Mirror (Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)

  • Fix: Specter Knight losing active attack frames when releasing a charged slash at the very end of a rail.
  • Fix: Starting Black Knight, Phantom Striker, or Treasure Knight with Skeleton Sniper or active lantern flames causing erroneous behavior.
