We weren't necessarily expecting regular patches for Nintendo's recent release Metroid Dread, but it seems there are still quite a number of issues that need to be resolved in the game.

As a result of this, MercurySteam has rolled out yet another update including a handful of general fixes - to improve the overall experience. There's even a "final boss" fix in there! Here are the full patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo's official support page:

Ver. 1.0.2 (Released November 3, 2021)

General Fixes

-Fixed an issue where retrying after a game over would cause the play time to be added only when retrying a specific boss fight.

-Fixed an issue where the game would force-quit if you hit an enemy frozen by an Ice Missile with the Shine Spark in a certain way.

-Fixed an issue that caused Samus to move strangely when jumping at certain times in the Morph Ball Launcher.

-Fixed an issue where the final boss would get stuck on a wall and not be able to move during a certain attack, making it impossible to progress in the game.

-Fixed an issue where Samus would get stuck in the wall when defeating the E.M.M.I. in Ferenia in a certain position.

This follows on from Version 1.0.1, which resolved a crash error towards the end of the game. You can read more about this particular patch in our previous update.
