Metroid Dread is a success in every respect. Not only has it been positioned as the highest-rated Spanish game of all time, but its sales reflect public interest in Samus Aran’s new adventure, which has already broken all-time franchise records in the UK and Japan. However, its launch is not without its obstacles, and now a bug has been found that prevents players from finishing the title. Luckily, Nintendo is already aware and is preparing an update for this October.
The bug appeared near the end of the adventure, and the company shared a workaround before its update.
According to the Nintendo website, which shares the information, Metroid Dread closes suddenly near the end of the game. In this sense, when users destroy a door while the map shows the marker for this same element, the title shows the message ” the program has been closed due to an error ” and expels the player from the application, which is highly annoying since it’s near the end of the game.
However, the Japanese company has echoed the ruling and has shared a temporary solution: reopen the game, remove the marker icon from the map and continue with the journey. In this way, players will be able to continue the game without waiting for the next Nintendo patch, which will be released sometime this October.
Therefore, if you have been the victim of this bug, Nintendo already gives you an option to end the game without it closing unexpectedly definitively. And for those who want to buy Metroid Dread in the future, they can rest assured that their adventure will be error-free. Of course, this has been a title that has left very positive opinions since it has boosted the sales of past instalments of the saga. Still, it has also had its dose of controversy by not reflecting all its developers in the credits. So, for better or for worse, it is shown that Mercury Steam has made its mark on video game development.
