Great news for you Steam Deck backplate lovers
Steam Deckers have wanted a good backplate replacement to relive the good days of transparent Gameboys. It took a lot longer than we expected for a replacement to come with it arriving on February 27TH, 2023.
What you need to know about Returnal on Steam Deck
The game runs ok at around 30 - 40 FPS in the beginning with the correct settings but gets a little rough later on in the game. Our stance right now is that it is playable, and with a few bug fixes, you will be able to play this at a more consistent 40 FPS with low settings. We recommend holding off until we see it become more stable.

Potential JSAUX Mod Case issues
It looks like some of the early kits for the Jsaux Mod Case have some molding issues. They also have been putting stickers on the FOAM parts of the Case where it rests against the back of the Steam Deck. This was reported in the Steam Deck Discord and could be resolved when more shipments are rolled out.
