Nintendo has made a software update available for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze today that fixes a game-halting glitch in World 3.
According to update notes, the patch will solve an issue some players have faced when completing level 3-3, Frantic Fields and finding no path has opened to the next level, Scorch 'n' Torch.
To initiate download of the update, simply start the game in your Wii U while connected to the Internet. According to the notes, players who have already experienced this problem should be able to continue their game unabated. The new version displayed on the title screen will be 1.1.0, so make sure you have that before heading in. Otherwise, your fields might just end up being more frustrating than frantic.
