Now that Paper Mario: The Origami King has been available on Nintendo Switch for a little while, some players have unfortunately uncovered a bug in the game that is preventing them from completing the game. The game-breaking glitch can be found in the Shangri-Spa area of the title where you head to get a Stamp Card and have to take it to four of the local springs. After receiving a ‘Spring of Rainbows VIP Pass’, this will grant the player access to the hidden Spring of Rainbows area and the pass taken away and removed from the inventory. Leaving the area by accident and you can’t regain access, so, if you save once you leave, then you can’t get the pass to get access again.
A video uploaded by Nintendo Unity on YouTube (which you can watch here) shows the bug in action.
We’re sure Nintendo will have this under control soon with a patch, but in the meantime, keep it in mind when playing this section of the game to avoid any nasty surprises.
