Surprised Pikachu

Did you pick up Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX when it was released last week? If so, you'll be pleased to hear Nintendo and The Pokémon Company will soon be releasing a patch for it that fixes a game-breaking bug.

According to the official patch notes, there's a glitch that occurs in dungeons with a fixed party. Here's exactly how it happens (thanks, Perfectly Nintendo):

fixes a game breaking glitch that occurs in dungeons with a fixed party. It occurs when the protagonist and their partner are defeated in the dungeon, and you remove the third Pokémon from your team. To avoid the issue, simply refrain from removing that third party member. If you already have, and cannot play anymore as a result, the update will allow you to play

Apart from the glitch, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon appears to have got off to a good start across multiple regions. In both Japan and the UK, it went straight to the top of the charts. Interestingly, in the UK, its debut sales are 37.6% higher than Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon on the 3DS. And over in Japan so far, it's managed to shift an estimated 138,548 units in its opening week.
