The amount of joy I got from Nintendo acknowledging the path to improvements is probably disproportionate, but it nonetheless made my night.

These games are really something special to me, and the only thing that's stopping me from recommending it to my friends who've asked me is the performance issues.

Hopefully soon enough I'll be able to fully recommend the games without any strings attached. Can't wait.

I’m not 100% how to interpret that statement from Nintendo. Does it mean more performance improvement patches are in the works or does it mean here’s a patch now STFU?

"We take the feedback from players seriously and are working on improvements to the games."

Working on improvements seems to indicate they're actively working on it and not finished.

I hope so. I’m cautiously optimistic that they’ll iron out the majority of problems. When they do, I’ll consider putting down some cash.
