Upcoming Switch patch will fix some of those Stardew Valley bugs

Audio crackling tops the list

It’s delightful knowing that a whole bunch of people are digging into Stardew Valley for the first time now that it has come to Nintendo Switch. If you’re among them, or are simply back for round two, excellent! I’m about to join you and become overwhelmed by livestock upkeep. (Early-game money is better spent elsewhere but I need to have chickens keeping me company, you know?)

Players have caught some issues with the Switch port and the developers are prepping a patch:

  • Audio crackling – Some players have been reporting a crackling noise coming out of the left speaker on the Switch during gameplay. If this happens to you, try closing the application and re-starting!
  • Unable to select certain items in crafting menu – specifically, some players have reported not being able to select items on the bottom right. (For a temp-workaround players can disable the option ‘Use controller-style menus’ – that should allow players to select things until a fix is distributed.)
  • Journey of the Prairie King minigame A/B inputs are swapped
  • Game crash when opening the journal if there are no active quests

“We’re sorry for letting these slip through, but we’re investigating and will provide fixes ASAP,” publisher Chucklefish said in a blog post.

I haven’t downloaded Stardew on Switch just yet knowing full well that the moment I set foot on the overgrown farm for the first time, that’s three hours out the window right there.
