Hello arcade / laundry enthusiasts – you may find this hard to believe but it’s already been a WEEK since the game launched (doesn’t time fly when you’re having suds).
Before we dive in, thank you all SO MUCH for your support and response to the release of Arcade Paradise. It’s been a pretty crazy month with the run up to launch, but seeing you all react to our release has made it very much worthwhile.
We’ve been scouring through your posts in the forums, responding to your reviews and logging everything for feedback, suggestions and of course – bug fixes!
Unfortunately, unlike our arcade cabinets, we can’t just ‘flick’ the bugs off a circuit board or two, so thank you for your patience whilst we got the first ‘Day 2’ patch pulled together and ready for you to download.
Here’s a list of everything included in the new patch (which will be hitting consoles next week after testing / submission) – but should be available for you RIGHT NOW on PC. Hold onto your laundry, it’s a big one, with adjustments to some ‘To Do’ list objectives, fixing to tracking, UI improvements – fixes on Arcade Games, and much much more

If you’ve reported a bug that is NOT listed here, fear not, we’ll still have it logged – it will just be in the next patch! Also note console players your update will contain all of this AND some console specifics we’ve omitted from here!
Once again thank you for your patience, we’ll be back with some Gamescom wrap up hype and news about the next patch sooner than you think!
