Stardew Valley Patch Is In The Works For The Switch

Stardew Valley has now arrived to the Nintendo Switch, and as with some newly released titles, teething issues can arise that users report after downloading and playing through.

Luckily, publisher Chucklefish has been quick to respond to this feedback, and have advised that they are working on a patch to fix the reported issues such as crackling noise on the audio, and users unable to select certain items in the crafting menu. Here’s the full information below:

“We’ve been keeping up with discussions about the game over social media, and have taken note of all of the issues people have been reporting. We’re working on a patch that will address the following:

  • Audio crackling – Some players have been reporting a crackling noise coming out of the left speaker on the Switch during gameplay. If this happens to you, try closing the application and re-starting!
  • Unable to select certain items in crafting menu – specifically, some players have reported not being able to select items on the bottom right. (For a temp-workaround players can disable the option ‘Use controller-style menus’ – that should allow players to select things until a fix is distributed.)
  • Journey of the Prairie King minigame A/B inputs are swapped.
  • Game crash when opening the journal if there are no active quests

“We’re sorry for letting these slip through, but we’re investigating and will provide fixes ASAP.”

The release date of this patch hasn’t been announced just yet, but we will keep you posted!

  1. At first I thought tha my speaker in TV was broken. Then I realised that even Switch has this annoying sound. Tried to give it less sound and it didnt work. Thanks that its only game issue and not broken hardware.
