It said it was working on a fix to prevent this from happening, and it's now officially arrived. This minor patch bumps the game up to Version 1.0.1. Several other issues have also been fixed to improve the experience, but Nintendo doesn't go into further detail.
Here are the full patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo's support page:
Ver. 1.0.1 (Released October 20, 2021)
- Fixed an issue where, if a map marker is placed on a specific door on the map screen (the door destroyed with the beam obtained at the end of the game), destroying that door at the end of the game would cause the game to forcefully quit with the message "The software was closed because an error occurred”.
- Fixed several other issues to improve overall gameplay experience.
