Nintendo released today the very first patch for its critically-acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Nintendo Switch.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword version 1.0.1 does not feature a host of new things but simply a stability patch to further improve the gameplay experience.
Here are the patch notes for the Skyward Sword HD first patch:
- Fixed several issues to improve the gameplay experience.
Nintendo did not specify as to what issues have been fixed but many seem to figure out it may be the soft-lock glitch that locks Link in a room with nowhere to go.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Nintendo:
