Troll and I launched yesterday and some are reporting that the game can run into a never ending loading glitch around 15 minutes in which stops the player from carrying on. NintendoLife reached out to the developer during their review process and they responded with an explanation along with a simple fix. Maximum Games explained:
We believe that it is due to a memory leak in the Switch OS. If users are experiencing issues, they can fix them by hard resetting the system. You do this by holding down the power button, then selecting “Power Options” and “Turn Off.” The next time you boot the game any issues should be fixed.
Here is an explanation of the glitch from NintendoLife’s reviewer, Matt Mason:
The bug happens about 10-15 minutes in, after the main character slides down a hill in a quasi-QTE sequence. You kill your first enemy and scour a clearing for crafting items, but when you have to leap over a hill to go to the next area the game falls into an endless loading screen. I’ve tried moving around on the hill a little bit to see if jumping off at a different spot would help, but no luck. I tried reloading about five times on Normal difficulty to no avail, so I restarted the game on both Easy and Hard to see if I could surpass the bug, but it’s the same end result.
