By now, you have probably heard of a significant bug in Metroid Dread that occurs late in the game. We won’t spoil anything, but Nintendo says that “if the player destroys a door while a map marker for that specific door is displayed on the map, the game will forcibly close”. When this happens, you’ll get an error message saying that “the software was closed because an error occurred”.
Nintendo confirmed earlier tonight that they are aware of the existence of this bug. In fact, they announced on Twitter that “a patch will be released by the end of October to fix this. We apologize for the inconvenience”. For the time being, Nintendo suggests that players “remove the door icon map marker to prevent this error from occurring”. Their official tweet about the matter is down below.
