Nintendo and Retro Studios have finally released a patch which fixes an issue on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze where, upon completing level 3-3 – Frantic Fields, the path to level 3-4 – Scorch ‘n’ Torch would not open up, preventing players from proceeding with the game. The patch is available and fixes that specific error.
Mercury, Batman Arkham Origins community manager, has announced on the Warner Bros community forums that the development team has no plans to release another patch for the fragile game and is focussing its efforts on the forthcoming downloadable content which is due out on other platforms. Mercury says if they do eventually get around to creating another patch it will be to target the progression blocking bugs and not the glitches.
“The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums.”
“If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progression blocking bugs for players, not the minor glitches that do not prevent one from continuing to play. The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for some of you, and want to thank you for having been patient.”
