The entire patch addresses issues
The new Xenoblade Chronicles 3 patch is live (version 1.1.1), and the entire focus of it involves some bugged quests. While we wait for the English patch site to catch up, the Japanese site has the full details.
There’s two big fixes here that fans have been asking about since launch. So one of the quests (the Mysterious Raider in Severed Connection) actually deals with one of the lengthiest and well-hidden questlines in the game, which you can dig into with more detail here.
Another one involves a food-related bug. So in certain circumstances, some food effects (which buff the party/player and provide bonuses, like extra XP) didn’t apply correctly. Now, as of version 1.1.1, they should work. The team even has a retroactive fix for the talent arts button, which could bug out on occasion. There’s also the classic vague “extra fixes” line that’s typical of Nintendo patch notes (“in addition, we fixed some issues so that you can play the game comfortably”), which hopefully translates to extra quality of life features.
In the meantime, this is good table-setting for the upcoming DLC, and 2023 expansion.
