Slain: Back from Hell getting 60fps patch

Due to an oversight during the porting process, the game was released with the framerate locked at 30fps. And while the game is completely 100% playable like this, we obviously want it to run as smoothly as possible and for the Switch version's framerate to be in-line with that of the other platform versions.

We have submitted a patch to Nintendo that will make Slain: Back From Hell run at 60fps. We're hoping the patch will be approved and made live at some point in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.
