An update has been quietly released for Pentiment on Switch, but its made a noteworthy change that many players were hoping to see.

Following the game’s release on Switch just a couple of weeks back, Pentiment has now gotten a free update that makes some tweaks. The most eye-catching change is that of the game’s icon, which has been updated after a bit of fuss from gamers. You can see the original icon (left) and new icon (right) in the image above.

That’s not all the update offered though, as it also fixed up an issue with the game’s High Contrast option. Outside of that, it seems everything else was left as-is from the original launch.

From Obsidian, Pentiment is a historical narrative-driven game focusing on character development, heavily stylized art, and choice-driven storytelling in early 16th century Bavaria. Players will play as Andreas Maler, a clever illustrator caught up in a series of murders in Tassing and Kiersau Abbey over the course of twenty five years. Players will be responsible for conducting their own investigation to decide the fate of the community, but each decision will have lasting consequences and inexorably draws Andreas closer to the center of an underlying conspiracy.

Remember when there was a massive fuss about icons like this back when the Switch launched? I remember Snake Pass copped a lot of flack about it!
