Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Gets Glitch Fixing Update!

This time, it’s to fix that semi notorious glitch some players were experiencing in the game’s third world.  Or in other words, the one that caused the path to the next level not to open up once a certain stage in world 3 was cleared for the first time.

Either way, Nintendo’s released a new patch to fix this issue now.  So hooray, no more unwinnable save files due to Frantic Fields not opening up the next level when beaten.

Here’s the announcement:

A software update is now available that fixes a specific error. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience.

Please start the game while your Wii U console is connected to the Internet to update the software. The software version after this update will be 1.1.0, as shown in the image below.
