By now, you’re more than likely aware of the news that Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is now available on Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. Unfortunately, it hasn’t even been but just a day or so since it released, and fans have already found something concerning.
According to Reddit user blademasternadroj, underwater levels have a game breaking bug in this version of the game. If you get hit by certain damage sources, you’ll “enter hit stun forever, and you need to quit the level to fix it”. They also mention that they do not remember this bug happening on the original hardware. So, it’s likely that Nintendo will have to release a patch very soon to fix the bug.
Hopefully they fix this as this is one if my favorite kirby games
Only on Nintendo Switch Online!
Some testing seems to suggest that touching a damage source underwater again during invincibility frames is what causes the glitch to occur.
Sounds about right.
