Metroid Dread Update Version 1.0.1 Patch Notes

General Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where, if a map marker is placed on a specific door on the map screen (the door destroyed with the beam obtained at the end of the game), destroying that door at the end of the game would cause the game to forcefully quit with the message “The software was closed because an error occurred”.
  • Fixed several other issues to improve overall gameplay experience.

  1. I’m with Mr. Will here. I’d also appreciate extra colors and skins for Samus as a bonus for completing the game.

  2. Awesome. What about it making my screen blink on and off from overheating my switch? And how about we also update the game to not have half of the game be 50% black? Amazing backgrounds but the foreground cut aways are lifeless which is very unmetroid. Please fix that.
