Right now in Japan, it's Golden Week. If you're wondering what this is, it's a period between the end of April and beginning of May where multiple national holidays take place. This year it runs for 10-days as the new emperor is crowned.
As with any public holiday, the business world typically shuts down. This has created a problem for the developer onebitbeyond as its "critical patch" for The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse has not yet been approved by Nintendo. Here's the full explanation from the game's publisher Devolver Digital via Twitter:
Technical note on Mormo’s Curse on Switch - we expected a critical patch to be applied to Switch at launch. Due to Golden Week in Japan, the patch is delayed a week so the game has some issues with player death.
The delay is expected to be "around" a week. In the meantime, you'll just have to deal with "some issues" relating to in-game character deaths. To view the pending changes, click here. And if you haven't already, be sure to check out our review.
