When Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey was released on the 3DS last month, some users encountered a game-breaking bug. If you lost Mario from your party in the Nimble Woods area of the game and then went back a screen to save your progress, the game would glitch out and Luigi would be unable to move beyond this section. YouTube and Reddit threads pointing out this problem were posted, with one player revealing they had lost 15 hours of progress.
Fortunately, Nintendo has now released a patch for the game, updating it to version 1.1. According to the official support page, the latest patch has resolved this issue. Even if you've already been a victim of this game-breaking bug, this update will automatically fix your game file so you can continue playing from this point. Below are the full details:
- Depending on the event, sometimes the player got stuck on a certain map when controlling Luigi solo and trying to save the game progress by using the Save Block. The issue has been fixed.
- By downloading the update data, this issue will no longer occur.
- Also, if the issue has already occurred, it will be fixed so that the player can continue playing.
