Played around 10 hours. Completed the game. Played 90% docked and 10% handheld for testing purposes.
Performance is almost flawless. There are some rare framedrops that don't impede gameplay.
No crashes.

Only issue encountered is a sound loop bug.
All sounds with loops don't loop properly. The sound initially plays properly, then instead of looping, it is replaced with a loud buzzing. This affects: doors, elevator, flamethrower and sacred manacle (last weapon of the game). The bug isn't game breaking, but can be annoying.

Workaround for the sound loop bug:
Finish any level while holding the flamethrower. Close the game back to the Switch menu. Start the game again, then play the level "Tomb of Ramses", it's the first level. Run as fast as you can to the elevator without shooting. Once the elevator starts moving, hold the fire button down. If the flamethrower sound plays correctly, it worked. Pause the game and go back to the title menu. Until you close the game, 95% of the looping sounds will be fixed.
This trick works 2/3 times. If it doesn't work, close the game back to the Switch menu and try again. Doing the workaround without the flamethrower fixes only the elevator sound loop. This trick doesn't fix the door sound, but it's problematic maybe for 1-2 doors in the entire game.
