Paper Mario: The Origami King update 1.0.1 patches big bug

Paper Mario: The Origami King update 1.0.1

A pretty serious game-breaking issue in Paper Mario: The Origami King has been patched. Nintendo just dropped a new patch for the game, Paper Mario: The Origami King update 1.0.1 today, adding some needed fixes and various adjustments. There are actually a handful of issues fixed here, adding some needed changes to the game.

It’s a serious bug that actually affected multiple areas of the game. There were a few areas, like the Spring of Rainbows in Shangri-Spa, that would block player progress if certain conditions were met. It locked a ton of players out from finishing the game or even progressing at all. That particular bug caused players to get stuck if they didn’t immediately enter the next area after fulfilling the conditions, so it was really frustrating. And the best part is that applying the fix won’t force you to reset game progress.

Here’s how Nintendo explained the issue:

The bug appears in the final part of the story, when, upon visiting the Shangri-Spa, players are required to visit the Spring of Bliss, Spring of Jungle Bliss, Spring of Purification, and Spring of Sanctuary and get stamps from them.

Those stamps grant a VIP pass so you can enter the fifth spring. However, players have discovered that getting the pass, exiting the cave, and not entering it right away, they’re stuck as the game doesn’t acknowledge that you already visited each of the other four Shangri-Spa.

Various other bugs have been fixed by the patch as well. Certain problems with the Battle Lab and the Rubber Band boss battle have also been patched out.

It’s a good idea to check out the patch notes below if you think you may have had one of these bugs, just to make sure everything is fixed.
