The newest Paper Mario: Origami King patch fixes multiple progress-related bugs

0

This one is pretty huge

Paper Mario: The Origami King has been out in the wild for a bit: enough time for folks to spot some progress-hindering bugs.

While a few of them are hard to trigger they do in fact exist; and can gate your progress on the critical path or toward a 100% completion rating, which will unlock a secret ending. As of patch 1.0.1, which was released this week, a few of those have been squashed. 

The "main" one that's been making the rounds involves a location where, if certain conditions were met, you wouldn't be able to re-enter the area. As of patch 1.0.1, you can "proceed normally" even if you've already encountered the bug. Another popular callout involved the game's inability to register a special enemy as "defeated" in your log book if a party member (AI) finished it off. That's also been fixed.

Finally, some broken hidden Toad locations have been fixed, amid a few rarer progression-halting bugs. I'm keeping things fairly vague, because the patch notes below outright spoil a few minor secrets and locations.

Version 1.0.1 [Nintendo]

Ver. 1.0.1

Overall Fixes

  • Fixed an issue in which you would be unable to enter the Spring of Rainbows in Shangri-Spa.
    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, you will now be able to proceed normally.
  • Fixed an issue in which players were unable to hit the Toad on top of the fountain in Shroom City.
    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, you will now be able to proceed normally.
  • Fixed an issue where Black Shy Guy would not be registered in the Gallery of the Musée Champignon—even if you have previously defeated one.
    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, return to Scorching Sandpaper West after the sun has returned and defeat Black Shy Guy once more to add him to your Gallery.
  • Fixed an issue in the Ninja Attraction in which, depending on the state of the player, certain Ninji enemies were undefeatable and halted progression.
    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, you will now be able to proceed normally.
  • Fixed an issue in which the game would occasionally hard lock in the Rubber Band boss battle.
  • Fixed an issue in the Battle Lab in which the score would not be properly registered after solving 33 or more lineups in Speed Rings in the Ring Trainer.
    Note: Previously registered scores will not change. New scores will be registered correctly after downloading this update data.
  • Fixed an issue in which you could obtain an item from outside of a certain coffin in the Temple of Shrooms. This fix also corrects a related error involving hints from the Love Toad in Toad Town.
    Note: If you’ve already obtained the item from outside of the coffin, the Love Toad’s hint error will be resolved.
  • Fixed an issue in Overlook Mountain in which the event of looking up at Overlook Tower would occasionally occur from the bottom of the hill.
